"THE SPIRIT COMPENSATES THE BELIEVER"
The Spirit of God is made available to help the believer to
many ways. Through the will of God, He sent Jesus into thei
world of sin that the Spirit might aid every person as a believer.'
The Spirit through Jesus that became the Christ is designed to
compensate man for his weakness. For instance, the Spirit
affords divine guidance which one cannot provide for himself N
The Spirit assists the believer as an invisible teacher as long ar
man subordiantes his will in favor of the teacher's will. : . :
The divine purpose of our heavenly Father from the avent
of sin was to provide a fore-runner for man. Because of the idea .
expressed here, it is necessary for man to believe and follow the
way prepared by the Spirit as man's divine fore-runner. Further,
the fore-runner, as used here, is one who takes the leading posi
tion on behalf of the follower. It becomes the primary duty of
the fore-runner to make the believer's way far clearer than one '
could do on his own power and might. The believer in this
prepared way is bound to be compensated through blessings as
long as he follows within the framework of the Godhead.
He who hath ears to hear let him hear.
