One day as he passed the open door of a bar, the strong odor aroused his old appetite for liquor. Just then he saw this sign in the window of a nearby cafe: “All the buttermilk you can drink—twenty-five cents!” Dashing inside, he opened his mouth and ordered, “Fill ’er up!” He drank one glass of buttermilk after another. After finishing the sixth, he walked past the bar and was no longer tempted. He was so full of buttermilk that he wasn’t thirsty for anything else!

   In our last lesson we discovered that the secret to resisting temptation is to stick close to Jesus. Remember: if you fill your life with Jesus there’s no room for anything else. When Jesus arrives, He puts up a “No Vacancy” sign for any would-be invaders.
   But now let’s get practical. How do we stay close to Jesus when He’s up in heaven and we can’t even see Him?
1. Read John 14:16-18. Who did Jesus say He would send to be with us after He left this earth? The ______ of truth.
