The Holy Spirit is Our Teacher – John 16:12-13

The Holy Spirit is Our Teacher – John 16:12-13

I still have many things to tell you, but you can’t bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth. 

Pastor John’s Notes:

The Holy Spirit is our teacher. He keeps us anchored to the truths of Christ so that we don’t drift away. He reminds us of everything Jesus taught us so that we don’t forget. He also continues to teach us new things. None of the things the Spirit teaches are in conflict with what Jesus taught; instead, the Spirit’s teachings amplify the teachings of Christ. This is why we should be in prayer daily, not only expressing our thoughts to God but quietly receiving what the Spirit reveals. The Spirit withholds nothing but will guide us into all truth. 

Prayer:

Holy Spirit, I rejoice in all of the truths you bring. Help me to be sensitive to your promptings, and rely upon the wisdom you offer.
