The Spirit of Truth

Scripture reading for April 27th:  John 16

Key Scriptures for over-comers:  John 16: 12-14  “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.  But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth.  He will not speak on His own; He will speak only what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come.  He will bring glory to Me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.”  

We are born into a world of sin and lies.  The first lie that we are under is that we can be god ourselves.  We are born with that lie and the world seeks to keep us under that futile way of living.  But Jesus came to bring abundant life!  He would do it by new birth and a gift of eternal life to all who would repent and believe on Him.  His resurrection would make available the “gift of the Father”, the Holy Spirit to live in each person.  The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth.  He would lead all Jesus’ followers into the truth by revealing Christ’s words to them and showing them what was to come by revelation.  The Spirit would make Christ and His word known and understandable to them, bringing glory to Jesus!

Observations for over-comers:  We must welcome the Holy Spirit into our daily life and conversation.  He is the Spirit of Truth, making known Christ and His will to us personally.  “I will give you a new heart and put a new Spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put My Spirit in you and move you to follow My decrees and be careful to keep My laws.”  (Ezekiel 36:26-27)
