While recently at MD Anderson in Houston I noticed that the signage in some departments held a message applicable to Christians. This one was in a patient’s room and the normal meaning is obvious. The spiritual message is:
Call (for the Helper), Don’t Fall (into Satan’s snare). Stay safe (in the Grace of God). Call for help (when under attack).
The Lord Jesus, after He went into Heaven, sent the mighty Spirit of God to be the believer’s Helper, Comforter, Teacher and Sanctifier. Each born-again believer is sealed in Christ Jesus with the Holy Spirit of promise (Ephesians 1:13). Jesus knew we would need a Helper. Sometimes The Helper in us is all we need to overcome sin and the devil. At other times we may need the prayer, advice or encouragement from the Helper in a brother or sister in-Christ. Avail yourself of the Holy Spirit’s assistance if you need it.
Remember: Call. Don’t Fall. Stay Safe. Call for help.
“But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper shall not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.” Jesus (John 16:7)
“And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent, rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit…”. (Acts 2:2-4)
“….but be filled with the Spirit…” (Ephesians 5:18)
May it be so for all of us!
