Changed from Within

Mentor

John 14:15-18
New Living Translation (NLT)

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit

15 “If you love me, obey[a] my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate,[b] who will never leave you. 17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.[c] 18 No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you.

Footnotes:
14:15 Other manuscripts read you will obey; still others read you should obey.
14:16 Or Comforter, or Encourager, or Counselor. Greek reads Paraclete; also in 14:26.
14:17 Some manuscripts read and is in you.


Mentored by the Wind

Our mentor’s in the wind
Hiding deep inside,
He never speaks a word
But in him all wisdom resides,

He heals us from within
In spirit he leads us on,
One day his work will end
And all darkness will be gone,

He comforts and he guides,
He makes us all anew,
If not for his compassion
What would we ever do?

So let us yield our bodies
And at last give up our wills,
He comes alongside to comfort us,
The king’s great promise to fulfill.

Father,

Thank You for sending Your Spirit to comfort and guide us. Without You we would be lost. Without You we would never find the Light. Without You we would never know love. We thank You and give You praise.
