“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever — the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.”
Advocate. That really isn’t one of those words that I use in my normal vocabulary. Dictionary.com has as one of its definitions “a person who speaks or writes in support or defense of a person, cause, etc.”
Recently I have had the opportunity to ask for help on behalf of the Johnsons. I have been so amazed at the responses. I put my desires to support the Johnsons at His footstep, and He blew my socks off. So much so that I think I have been as blessed as the Johnsons in all of it. My Advocate reached out with me…taking my desire to another level. It makes me excited to pray for who is next after the Johnsons, for there are so many in need. Who’s advocate will I be? Who’s will you be? Am I looking for those opportunities?
