John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

The Holy Spirit who Jesus said would abide with us forever is our Comforter. He is here to be to us everything Jesus was to His disciples when He was here present with them. The Holy Spirit truly fills in for Jesus, doing what He woulds be doing if He was physically present. He kept them on the right path for the 3 ½ years that He was with them. The Holy Spirit will be with us forever and He also will keep us from the evils of this world. That is why we need to know how to walk in fewllowship or communion with the Holy Spirit (2 Cor. 13:14).

As the Comforter He comes alongside us to pick us up by speaking tenderly to us and in a way that soothes our pain like a medicine. He does this by:

1. Communicating joy Rm. 14:17; (2 Thess. 1:6)
Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

2. Soothes us by sharing God’s love for us Rm. 5:5, 8; (2 Cor. 13:14).
Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

3. Teaching and leading us to the truth of God’s Word that we need John 14:26; (John16:13He points out what we don’t know or did know but forgot).
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

4. Imparts hope in an abounding measure by His power Rm. 15:13.
Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

5. Brings forth anointing that removes burdens and destroys yokes of bondage Is. 61:1-3.
Isaiah 61:1-3 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
