Jesus told us he had to leave so that the Holy Spirit could come. There are many other scripture verses that tell us what the Holy Spirit does in our life if we let him.
A few are:
"The Spirit gives us desires that are opposite of our sinful nature." Gal. 5:17 NLT
The Spirit leads us in every part of our life if we let him. Gal. 5:25 NLT
The Spirit gives us the mind of Christ. 1 Cor. 2:16 NLT
"...letting the Spirit control your mind leads to a life of peace." Romans 8:6b NLT
When we read the Word and utilize the Spirit in us, God’s secrets, thoughts, and blessings are revealed to us. His thoughts are right in front of us and we know all of the things He freely gives us. Plus the Spirit gives us a life of peace.
