Acts 16:22-34. Your right hand has saved me, O Lord – Psalm 137(138):1-3, 7-8. John 16:5-11.
The Holy Spirit is our advocate
Salvation comes to those who hear the Word and keep it. We hear the word ‘advocate’ in the Gospel today. Jesus uses the word ‘advocate’ here for the Holy Spirit. An advocate is someone who stands beside you and helps you in court. An advocate speaks on your behalf, defends you and helps to set you free. An advocate offers support, strength and comfort. Can you allow the Holy Spirit into your life to speak on your behalf, to walk beside you and help set you free?
