“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the 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.” John 16:13
Jesus had been giving the disciples a little glimpse of what was ahead for them. He talked about His dying and the troubles that will come afterward. He wants to tell them more, but He knows they are not ready for it. Now Jesus tells them that the Spirit will come and help them in knowing all the truth.
Everywhere you look there are people stating that they are telling the truth. They are stating that their way or product is the best. If everyone is stating that their way is best, and they are different ways, then someone is lying and there is no truth in their statement.
The easy way to see all of this is in products. Every car manufacturer states that their car is the best. Which one is really the best?
In a not so clear way is in ethics of life. Many different people try to say that their way of living is the correct way. This includes the ways to get into heaven or the ways to live for God. The world goes to the point of saying that any way that works for you is acceptable truth. Truth now becomes relative.
Jesus said that the Spirit would come and guide you into all truth. This Spirit is God’s Holy Spirit. He will guide you into all truth. That is truth everywhere you look.
Often on the surface something can look good and full of truth, but underneath there is extreme deception and lies. Looking at it with just regular eyes, a person will not see that. It takes a deeper insight. This is where God’s Spirit comes in. God knows all and sees all. He can guide you correctly.
Seek God’s guidance in every area of life. He knows the truth and will guide you in it. Jesus is truth and so the Spirit will guide you in Jesus. That is how to live for Jesus, be like Jesus and please the Father.
Are you willing to know the truth? Seek the Holy Spirit. Listen to the Holy Spirit’s guidance. Know the real truth.
I pray today that you will allow yourself to be led by the Holy Spirit; that you will hear the voice of the Holy Spirit; that you will not be led down false paths; and that you will know the truth in everything.
