me & my brain

from time to time, i have these days when my brain is reving into the red zone & i’m thinking about many things (some deep & some not so deep) at the same time.  So here’s something i’ve been considering today:

What is the role of the Holy Spirit in the believer’s life today? i understand that the Holy Spirit is our Comforter, that the Holy Spirit has gifts for us, as well as character improvements (fruit), but what about our 24 / 7 existence & the Holy Spirit’s interface?  Jesus told His disciples that it was better for Him to go away so that the Holy Spirit would come to be with us – like an “upgrade”.  How is the Holy Spirit an “upgrade” for us from the physical presence of Jesus w His disciples at that time & now? 

I’m asking because i’d like your input, so pls leave a comment.  🙂
