Our Precious Holy Spirit

“The Holy Spirit champions our cause with Jesus Christ, with groans that words cannot express. O my soul! You are ready to burst within me. O my heart! You are swollen with grief. The hot tide of my emotion would quickly overflow the channels of my veins. I long to speak, but the very desire chains my tongue. I wish to pray, but the fervency of my feeling curbs my language. There is a groaning within that cannot be uttered. Do you know who can utter that groaning? Who can understand it, and who can put it into heavenly language, and utter it in a celestial language, and utter it in a celestial tongue, so that Christ can hear it? O yes; it is God the Holy Spirit; He defends our cause with Christ, and then Christ defends it with His Father. He is the advocate who makes intercession for us, with groans that words cannot express.”

—Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
