This devotional is brought to you by Pacific Press® Publishing Association.
Jesus spent three and a half years training His disciples, and much of what He taught them is still available to us through the Gospel accounts. "After I go back to heaven," Jesus told them, "My Father will send the Holy Spirit, who will remind you of the things I said when we were together."
Of course, in order for the Spirit to bring to mind the words of Christ, you first have to put them into your memory bank. Some modern Christians treat the Holy Spirit as a miraculous bypass for Bible study, but that is not how Jesus explained His role. You still have to spend time in God's Word, absorbing the information inspired by the Spirit.
For the believer, quiet time with God is not optional; it is essential. It is what we need to develop the all-important skill of paying attention to the voice of the Spirit.
