Love— Obedience (v.15)
And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
1 John 2:3
He is the Comforter, the other Helper (v.16)
My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
1 John 2:1-2
He is the Spirit of truth (v.17)
What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:12-14
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
He is the personal presence of Christ (vs.18-20)
He is the very special manifestation of Christ within the believer (vs.21-22)
He is the abiding presence of the Trinity (vs.23-24)
The one who keeps God’s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
1 John 3:24
He is the Holy Spirit, the Teacher (vs.25-26)
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.
He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
