And one more thing…

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. John 16:13 NIV

Today's verse reminds us that the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth, is promised to guide us into all truth. He speaks not on His own authority but conveys what He hears from the Father, revealing what is to come.

As in a conversation when the speaker says, "And one more thing…" to add a crucial point, Jesus uses this strategic moment to emphasize the importance of the third person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit's role. As Jesus prepares to leave, He assures His disciples that the Spirit will continue to reveal divine truths and the grand narrative of salvation, truths too profound to grasp without the Spirit's guidance.

This passage reassures us that understanding God's will is an evolving journey guided by the Holy Spirit, who reveals more profound insights into God's plans and our part in His story.

Heavenly Father,

We come before You in gratitude for the gift of Your Spirit, the Spirit of truth. Reflecting on Jesus' words, we ask for the guidance of Your Holy Spirit in our lives.

God, guide us into all truth. Help us to hear Your voice above all others and to discern Your will amid life's noise. May Your Spirit speak to our hearts, revealing the depths of Your wisdom and love.

Teach us the things that are yet to come. Prepare our hearts for the future You have planned, and give us the courage to follow where You lead.

In moments of uncertainty, remind us of Your promise never to leave us without direction. Just as Jesus assured His disciples, assure us too that Your Spirit is with us, illuminating our path and empowering us to live out Your purpose.

We thank You for the ongoing revelation of Your truth in our lives. May we always be open to the lessons You have for us, growing in faith and understanding.

In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.


Pastor Tim
