Spirit of Truth
“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.” John 16:13 (ESV)
The Holy Spirit takes the word of God and speaks convicting truth and freedom from falsehoods to the believer. Unless we are standing on the promises of Scripture we can be helpless in deciphering truth from error. God desires that we continue to grow in faith and the knowledge of the Bible, and we do that by listening to the Spirit of truth.
As we near the end of the age, error will masquerade as truth, even in the pulpit, and unless we are in the habit of consulting the very words of God to decipher truth from the lies, we risk being easily deceived.
Let’s pray today that we would remain tuned into the Spirit of God to convict us from God’s Word.
