Choice 2- John 14:15–17, 26–27; 15:26–27; 16:7–8, 13–14. The Savior’s Instructions about the Holy Ghost

  1. As you study the following verses, make a list of what the Savior taught about (1) what the Holy Ghost does and (2) what disciples must do to receive the Holy Ghost:
    • John 14:15–17
      • The Holy Ghost will be with us
      • We must pray unto the Father
    • John 14:26–27
      • He will teach all things taught by Christ and bring those things unto our remembrance
      • Don’t allow your heart to be troubled
    • John 15:26–27
      • The Spirit will testify of Christ
      • You must also testify of Christ
    • John 16:7–8
      • The Spirit will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness and of judgment
      • They have to let Christ go
    • John 16:13–14
      • He will speak the things Christ speaks and not the things he, himself speaks
      • Await the things the Spirit will announce the coming of
  2. Add to your list above as you study the following resources:
    • Institute student manual Points to Ponder, “The Holy Ghost Brings Man to His Fullest Potential” (pg. 168)
      • It quickens all of the intellectual faculties
      • Stand in Holy Places
    • Institute student manual Points to Ponder, “As a Messenger of the Godhead, the Holy Ghost Teaches Faithful Members” (pg. 168)
      • Bears witness of the Father and the Son
      • Obey the commandments of the Father and the Son
    • Bible Dictionary, “Holy Ghost” (pg. 704)
      • Acts as a cleansing agent and can purify someone of sin
      • We must be worthy in order to receive it
  3. Review your list of what the Holy Ghost does. Then write responses to the following tasks:
    • Describe how the Holy Ghost helped the Apostles fulfill their missions after the Savior’s death and resurrection.
      • I see it as this: The Holy Ghost speaks the truth, and when one of the apostles wanted to know what to do next, they prayed unto the Father; then the Spirit is given a command and it is then passed on.
    • Write a paragraph about a time when the Holy Ghost blessed you in one of the ways you listed above. Give an example of how the Holy Ghost has inspired you.
      • There were several times where I felt prompted to do or not to do things. Some of those biggest times were when I felt prompted to stay away from certain places; I don’t know why, but for some reason I was being told that where I was heading was not safe and that I needed to turn around.
