Every Good Work
At the Fourteenth of John’s Gospel, the Savior promised His disciples the coming of the Spirit of Truth, or Comforter. In both cases, the reference is to the Holy Spirit. The Greek word translated as “Comforter” in the King James Version of the Scriptures is defined as “one called to the side of another.” The idea, then, seems to be the lending of some necessary assistance. Among the manners in which the Spirit would lend assistance to the disciples was “guiding (them) into all truth,” as shown at John Sixteen. While the Spirit inspiration served the apostles and others in this manner in order to provide for us the Scriptures, the finished product continues to provide for us the spiritual assistance we require. At Second Timothy Three, the Word, given by inspiration of God, is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, instruction, and the perfecting of the man of God, completely furnishing him unto every good work.
