The Teacher

When I started losing my hearing, my parents got me a hearing aid. They also took me to a teacher who taught me to lip read. That helped me get along with my family and at school. After I was married, another teacher taught me and my wife sign language. My teachers helped me control my deafness. They helped me communicate with my family and the rest of the world.
When I became a Christian, God gave me a different Teacher. This Teacher is the Holy Spirit. Verse 26 of our Bible Reading says, “But the Helper will teach you everything. The Helper will cause you to remember all the things I told you. This helper is the Holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name.”
When I am tempted to do wrong, the Holy Spirit reminds me about Jesus’ words in the Bible. He helps me to live a holy life and to communicate with God. I am so thankful that God gave me the Holy Spirit to help me every day.
