Scripture –

John 16: 13–14 – When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.  He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

Observation –

Jesus is telling the disciples about the coming of the Spirit and how the Advocate will work.  The Holy Spirit is part of the Triune God sent from God and therefore is truth.  The power of the Spirit is to guide believers in the truth of the Father and the Son.  The Spirit will allow those in Christ to see things in the future. The Spirit will teach, show and remind us of Jesus to glorify Him.



I must listen and submit to the Spirit to give me strength and encouragement!  The Spirit is of power not of fear to remain strong in my faith as we enter into a more secular society full of moral relativism.   God’s word is truth as it is revealed to me by the Spirit.  Truth is not subjective, fluid or changing due to cultural trend and pressure.  I have to believe in the entirety of the Bible as the Spirit filled written word of God suitable for instruction. I know I can trust in God’s word as it is unchanging and prepares me.  When I listen and follow the Spirit I am walking on a path towards Jesus to point others to give God the glory.

Prayer –


Thank you for your love, grace and your steadfast truth!  Let the power of the Spirit guide me in your truth to share the hope  I have in you in a winsome way.  Give me strength in my faith and a sense of urgency to proclaim your gospel here and to the nations to extend your glory!
