WE ALL NEED A HELPER

June 9, 2019

Acts 2:1-11; Psalm 104:24-35; John 14:8-17

ARE YOU WILLING TO ASK FOR HELP?

John 14:16, “I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever..”

ADAM NEEDED A HELPER

Genesis 1:18, Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”

THEY LOST THE HELPER

Genesis 3:8, “And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.”

WE WERE CREATED TO NEED A HELPER

Genesis 1:26, “Then God said, “Let us make man in OUR image, after our likeness…”

  • As God is Trinity: Father. Son. Holy Spirit.
  • We are: Flesh. Soul. And Spirit.

1 Thessalonians 5:23, “Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. “

THE HELPER RETURNS

Galatians 4:4-7, “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law…”

Luke 4:1, “Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness.”

John 14:1, “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you..”

John 14:18, “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.”

John 14:16, “I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever..”

WHAT WE CAN DO WITH HELP

Genesis 1:28, “And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth…”

John 14:12, ““Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.”

IT IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU TO BE ALONE

– Have you been doing this on your own?
