You know, I've never thought about 'naming' the Holy Spirit before, but what a great idea! When I read that, it seemed to take him from 'ethereal being' to 'friend'! And the reason for the name you chose is wonderful!

This is such an encouraging entry. I love the examples you give of what Jesus did for his disciples, and how we can share those exact same things today, through "GUS".

I liked the ending in that it clearly states only those who are friends of Jesus received such care; would it be possible to continue this by showing that anyone can be a friend of Jesus, and how they do this - perhaps the John 3:16 verse teased out would work well?

This is a great entry and a wonderful reminder of all that Jesus is and can be for us while we live in this broken world. Well done.

Wow, lot of spiritual truth and food for thought here bundled up in few words! As one of the ways the Holy Spirit is referred to in the bible is Spirit of Understanding, GUS certainly fits as a friendly nickname, I would have never thought of doing that, interesting! Well done article.
This is short but right to the point. I smiled at the name Gus, it was quite clever.
Thank you for an interesting article and I love the title. Short and sweet.
