February 7 – Jesus promised us that the Spirit would be in us. John 14:17 says; “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you”.
From this scripture and the following six verses we can see and know that the Holy Spirit is our “resident teacher”. He isn’t something that only appears when we’re on our best behavior but He makes His abode with us. The transliteration of abode means to tarry.
“The gift of the Holy Ghost is the right to have the constant companionship of the Spirit; the actual enjoyment of the gift, the actual receipt of the companionship of the Spirit, is based on personal righteousness; it does not come unless and until the person is worthy to receive it.” Mormon Doctrine, pg. 313.
