He Will Glorify Me

"I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you." - John 16:12-14

How do you make wise decisions? There are a lot of things the Bible doesn't speak to directly. So, what do we do when the Word of God is silent about a specific issue we are facing? How do we know the right thing to do? Thankfully, we have been given the Holy Spirit the Spirit of truth. It is He who will guide us in these difficult times. What does that mean exactly? Jesus gives us the answer at the end of this passage. He said that the Spirit will do several things but ultimately, "He will glorify Me." One of the filters when making decisions in life is the question, "Does this decision bring glory to Jesus and align with the truth of His Word?" For the Holy Spirit will always shine a spotlight on Jesus and the direction He provides will never contradict the Word of God.

Life and Peace

"I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. 'I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you'".- John 14:16-18

What is better: to have Jesus beside you, or the Holy Spirit inside you? Most of us would probably choose the first option. But that gives evidence to the fact that we don't understand the blessing we have in the indwelling and empowering nature of the Holy Spirit. The Christian life is the life that Jesus lived then, now lived in and through us today. And this happens through the promised Holy Spirit. As Jesus ascended into Heaven, the Holy Spirit descended to earth so that He can lead us in all truth and to the knowledge of Christ. In another passage in the New Testament, Paul said that those who live according to the Holy Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit, which results in life and peace (Romans 8:5-6).Have we truly grasped the blessing of the Holy Spirit that is within us?

Prayer:

Are you setting your mind on the things of the Spirit rather than on the flesh?
