Jesus said to his disciples:
"I have much more to tell you,
cannot bear it now.
But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
guide you to all truth.”
As we continue to get closer to the wonderful
Solemnity of Pentecost,
we continue to
focus in on the Holy Spirit
This passage specifically
points to the Holy Spirit as the
“Spirit of Truth.”
It’s interesting how
Jesus introduces the Holy Spirit under this title.
He explains that He has much more to tell them,
but they cannot bear it now.
In other words, the “Truth” is too much for them to bear
unless the Holy Spirit is alive within
This gives us two
wonderful insights worth pondering.
First, if we have not truly opened our lives to
the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, we can
be certain that we cannot
bear the Truth.
We cannot understand the
deep truths of God
and we cannot believe them
unless the Holy Spirit is alive within us.
when the Spirit of Truth
is alive within us
will know that we know the Truth.
fully opened our mind and heart
Holy Spirit, we become
hungry for the Truth!
The Holy Spirit will
“guide us to-all truth.”
And one of the effects
of being guided into all truth is that
We will be amazed with the journey!
We will be in awe
at the understanding of things
that open up in our minds:)
We will be able to make
sense of things in anew way.
The Holy Spirit is the perfect “guide”
and the journey toward the
Truth is glorious we are blessed to
enter the kingdom of God,
to be in the presence of God.
So we should not be consumed by
the sufferings-of this world,
because the glory of God we will witness
will surpass it all.
We should be longing for the day we see
Jesus’ in His return.
How fully do we embrace
all that God wants to reveal to us?
Open fully to the Holy Spirit and
seek all that He wishes to reveal.
