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. 14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you. – John 16:13-15

“The Spirit of Truth,” says our Lord to his weak and half-informed followers, “shall guide you into all truth.”  That promise was for our sakes, no doubt, as well as for theirs.  what ever we need to know for our present peace and sanctification, the Holy Ghost is ready to teach us…Into all spiritual truth that is really profitable, and that our minds can comprehend and bear, the Holy Spirit is ready and willing to guide us.  Then let us never forget, in reading the Bible, to pray for the teaching of the Holy Ghost.  We must not wonder if we find the Bible a dark and difficult book, if we do not regularly seek light from Him by whom it was first inspired.  In this, as in man other things, “we have not because we ask not.” – J.C. Ryle

  1. Thank you for posting this. It is so easy to forget the role that the Holy Spirit has to help us understand the truth of God. It’s His presence and influence that protects our understanding of God and keep us from following false teachings.
