John 14:16-17; 16:7-12; Romans 8:12-15; 1 Corinthians 2:10-13; Galatians 5:22-25
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, will teach you all things.”
In this passage, Philip’s ministry expands. The church is being persecuted by Saul and this persecution has caused the believers of the early church to scatter. Philip is led by the Spirit to Samaria, where he shares the good news about Jesus and then he is led down a desert road that leads to Gaza. It’s on this road that Philip meets the Ethiopian. Philip’s encounter with the Ethiopian reveals the Holy Spirit’s work in the lives of the believers as it leads them to share the gospel and to obey God.
God Is Holy Spirit – God Gives A Helper
God not only exists as Father and Son, but also as Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is probably the most difficult person of the Trinity for us to grasp because it is the concept most unfamiliar to us. The Bible tells us that God is Spirit. The Holy Spirit is fully God, active, alive, and at work today in the lives of those who place their faith in God. Jesus told the disciples that it was far better for Him to leave the world than to stay, because God would send the Holy Spirit to indwell them, lead them, and work in them. God does not leave us on our own as Christians, but has sent us a helper, the Holy Spirit.
