Be a Good Helper




But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
 —John 14:26
 
 
The apostle Paul had many helpers in his work of ministry.
He listed them in Romans 16.
He made special reference to Phoebe, who “has been a helper of many and of myself also” (2).
Priscilla and Aquila risked their own lives for Paul (3-4).
And Mary, Paul said, “labored much for us” (6).

According to 1 Corinthians 12:28, Helping is a spiritual gift.
Paul listed it among the gifts from the Holy Spirit that are given to believers in Christ’s body, the church.
The gift of “helps” is just as needed as the others that are listed.

In John 14:26, even God the Holy Spirit is called a “Helper.”
Jesus said, “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you”.

In whatever ways the Holy Spirit, the Helper, has gifted you, let Him use you for His honor.

Remember: Be a good helper. Your church needs you.
