The Spirit of Truth

 In Daily Devotional

John 15:26

“But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.”

The Father and Jesus, the Son, determined in their Wisdom that we would need a Helper. How magnificent that our Helper, Teacher, Counselor and Guide comes to us as the Spirit of the Father and the Spirit of the Son!

Jesus perfectly represented the Father and always pointed people to the Father. Similarly, the Holy Spirit will always point people to Jesus. The Spirit of Truth represents perfectly the One Who is the Truth.

Therefore, the Holy Spirit will always counsel us, and help us, in perfect harmony with Jesus, Who is the Living Word. We can be certain that the voice of the Spirit will never contradict the Word of God.

Since Jesus told us repeatedly that He only does what the Father does, and says what the Father says, we can be confident that the Holy Spirit perfectly represents the Father too. Yet, the Father and the Son think so highly of the Spirit that they agreed to send Him to help us.

All three Persons of the Trinity are in harmony, and desire to help us in our restored relationship with God by always proclaiming Truth, and guiding us to the One Who is Truth.


Spend some quiet time with the Father thanking Him and Jesus for sending you the Spirit of Truth. Ask the Father to give you a renewed hunger and thirst for His Word so that you will better recognize and obey the voice of the Holy Spirit.
