The Holy Spirit Guides Us Into All Truth
June 12, 2022
Readings: Isaiah 6:1-8
The Spirit part of man is the most powerful part since it is the foundation of life. When we speak of the Trinity, it gives us an explanation of who God is. In the beginning, God had a relationship with man. Adam walked and talked with God in the cool of the evening. Adam had this close relationship with Him. He was guided by God in every way. But when sin fell, man began to be guided by things on the outside.
God wanted to restore our relationship to Him so that He had to send His only Son to remove the sin in order that we be holy and righteous. It is only when sin is removed that He could come back to us and have that same relationship He had with man before. The disciples were trained by the law. A lot of times they did not understand what Jesus was trying to tell them. In our lives today, we also tend to question God. This means we have allowed other things to come in between our lives. When this happens, we have a hard time accepting the truth, and this is the very reason why God wants the Holy Spirit to be in our lives.
Jesus said, “when the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you into all truth.” The Spirit will lead us, open our eyes and minds to understand. He will not only teach us, He will guide us. The Holy Spirit will only speak of what the Father and Son are speaking. He does not have His own opinion. He is united with the Father and the Son. There is power in unity, and Oneness. They only do one thing. The law was divisive. It had too many commandments, each having its own meaning and interpretation and was causing confusion and division. Christ knew that the disciples were trained by the law and had different opinions of their own. They did not grasp what Christ was saying. Many times, we question God. We doubt. We live in a society that propagates doubt. Do we listen to God? Do we know His voice? The Holy Spirit will help us understand what God is saying because He abides in us.
Paul used to persecute the church when he was still Saul. But when God called Him and took him into the wilderness, the Holy Spirit was the one who taught him. 1 John 2:24 “You, let what you have heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you have heard from the beginning should abide in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.” It seems that the more education we strive for, the more confusion there is, because the system of the world does not operate in unity and oneness. Do we seek the work of God? Scriptures tell us that the first thing in the morning, we should seek God. Instead, we reach for our phone and let that be the first thing we look for. John 6:45
“It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me.” All without exemption is taught. It is us who choose our own way. 1 John 2:27 “As for you, the anointing, you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you.” The Holy Spirit will speak only the Truth- that Christ came to give us life in abundance. Christ wants us to overcome. He desires that we be on top. This is how much He loves us. 2 Corinthians 13:14 “May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” Ephesians 3: 17 “I pray… that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Colossians 3:11 “In that renewal there is no longer Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and free; but Christ is all and in all.” Colossians 2:9 “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.”
He has given us the Holy Spirit so that the fullness of the Father and the Son can be revealed to us. The Holy Spirit teaches us God’s ways in order that we are made strong. If we fail it is because we have rejected Him. Trinity Sunday should wake us up so that we are able to live the life God wants us to live.
