A student named Steve Winger from Lubbock, TX was taking a challenging class in Logic. The course and teacher were known for exacting and demanding exams. The final exam was looming, and the professor mercifully told the class that each student would be permitted to bring in a single 8.5 x 11 inch sheet with as much information as they could put on that one sheet for help during the test.

On exam day, each student came to class clutching their precious pieces of paper with as much information as possible. Some students had crammed lines and lines of font so tiny and so numerous onto that single sheet that you had to wonder how they could read it.

But Steve walked in with a single blank sheet and a friend who was a senior student and who had an ’A’ in logic. Steve bent down and placed that single, blank sheet of paper on the floor next to his desk. His expert friend stood on the paper.

The professor noticed the extra body in the room and asked what he was doing. Steve piped up, "You said we could bring in whatever we could fit on a single piece of paper for help on this test. Well, this is my help and he can fit on the paper!" He had followed the instructions to the letter and was the only student in that class to score an ’A,’ since he had his expert friend standing along side him.


The Holy Spirit is like that friend, standing along side us, supporting us, and guiding us. A name for the Holy Spirit that is not used much is:

Paraclete – from two words that means “to call alongside.”
