The Wonderful Someone

“It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.”

John 16:7, kjv

The very promise Jesus gave us contains a name for the Holy Spirit that reveals the uniqueness of His nearness in our loneliness. This name, “Comforter,” is equally translated from the Greek text into six other names, each of which describes a slightly different aspect of the Holy Spirit’s precious, personal ministry in our lives:

Comforter: One Who relieves of mental distress
Counselor: One Who gives advice and manages causes
Helper:  One Who furnishes relief or support
Intercessor: One Who acts between parties to reconcile differences.
Advocate: One Who pleads the cause of another.
Strengthener: One Who causes strength and endurance
Standby: One Who can be always relied upon

Can you imagine how wonderful it would be to have Someone with these attributes in your life? If you belong to Jesus, you do have that wonderful Someone. You have the Holy Spirit.

THE KEY TO A LIFE OF IMPACT

What are the secrets to a life of impact? Daniel achieved greatness in the eyes of his contemporaries, in the eyes of history, and most importantly, in the eyes of God. His faith did not waver as he faced his critics, as he served new kings in power, or even as he confronted hungry lions. How can we achieve that kind of faith today? Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:

•  The choice to listen
•  The choice to forgive
•  The choice to pray

Cultivate a life-changing faith when you learn to implement The Daniel Key into your everyday life. Request your copy!
