How on earth is a Christian meant to fulfil the expectations Jesus has for those who follow him? It appears to be an impossible task! The answer is found in the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit picked up where Jesus left off. This is similar to a sports team when one member leaves the field of play and another takes his place. The Holy Spirit is not a second-string player. This is a tactical substitution where the Holy Spirit has been held in reserve for this moment when his skills are particularly needed.
