But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. NIV
Here, Jesus is preparing the disciples for the persecution that is sure to come.
What he tells them is beyond comforting … they won’t be on their own.
Even though Christ is preparing to depart this world, he confirms to the disciples that the Holy Spirit will inhabit them … they will not be alone.
Here, thousands of years later, I am not alone either. The power of the Holy Spirit is mine to draw upon … a comfort in times of stress, a source of peace in times of trouble.
I am not alone.
That’s what I’ll think about today.
