John 16

The name for the Holy Spirit used here means "encourager". He comes alongside and makes us remember Jesus. I think I need more of that. Discouragement is a Holy Spirit shortage.

The Father is our friend because we are friends with his Son. Our prayers are heard because we ask in the name of his Son.

The resurrection of Jesus means joy that cannot be taken away from us. We pray so that our joy might be made full. We pray because our asking and his answering brings us complete joy. Wow! God wants me to be happy, really, really, happy!
