The Doorpost: What the Holy Spirit does through us

Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you.
John 16:7

We may sometimes think that it would be better to be able to see Jesus in the flesh, like His disciples did when He was on the earth. The truth is that they had something better after He left the earth—the Holy Spirit living in each of them. As believers in Jesus Christ, we have the same advantage today.

We can see Jesus at work in our lives every day. We can also see it in the believers around us. We can read or hear about what God is doing through other believers that we have no personal contact with. Yet God is doing so much more than that.

We as individuals cannot address all of the problems in the world. We cannot even handle all of the problems we know about. But as we members of the Body of Christ respond as the Holy Spirit prompts us, using what He has entrusted to us, the result will be more than what can be accomplished by all human institutions combined. It will be far more than we can even imagine.
