John 16:13-15 (NLT)The work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a Christian is multidimentional. We are told that, among other things, the Holy Spirit "join with our spirit to affirm that we are God's children" (Roman 8:16). In this passage, we see that the Holy Spirit serves as a teacher and a guide.
13When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not be presenting his own ideas; he will be telling you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. 14He will bring me glory by revealing to you whatever he receives from me. 15All that the Father has is mine; this is what I mean when I say that the Spirit will reveal to you whatever he receives from me.
The Holy Spirit Will Help Us Understand the Bible
Before you became a Christian, understanding the Bible may have been like walking around with blinders on. But those blinders you once havd were taken off, so to speak, when the Holy Spirit came into your heart. The Holy Spirit teaches you the truth of the Scripture, helping you grasp hard-to-understand passages.
The Holy Spirit Will Reveal More and More about God and Jesus
The Bible makes it abundantly clear that one of the primary roles of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Christ. The moment you invited Jesus into your heart, God's Spirit began to help you grasp the awesome, praiseworthy attributes of Jesus. Those who do not have a personal relationship with Christ cannot understand the full glory of God, because they do not have the Holy Spirit's assistance.
The Holy Spirit wants to be actively involved in your life, helping you grow in the knowledge of God and his Word so that you can better understand God's will for your life. Everytime you open the Bible, pray for the Holy Spirit to show you how the passages you read can apply to your life.
