The Spirit of Truth
“I have much more to tell you but you cannot bear it now. Yet when that one I have spoken to you about comes — the Spirit of truth — he will guide you into everything that is true." Jesus on the night before the Cross, from John 16
Can't your hear Jesus letting out a long, exhausted sigh before He says, "I have much much more to tell you but you cannot bear it now"? So what will He do? How will His disciples hear the rest, and know the truth? Well, He'll simply send the embodiment - actually the "enspiritment" - of Truth to live directly in their human spirits. When they have a question, all they have to do is ask. When they have a doubt, the Truth is right there. When they are confronted by a world filled with clouded understandings and un-truth, they need not fear. The Spirit of Truth is within them. Rather than fearing what's "out there," they can simply head inside...
Isn't it a marvel how our God creates these cul-de-sacs of Belief? If we want to know the Way, it's Him; the Truth, it's Him; life, it's Him; light, it's Him; love, it's Him; peace, it's Him. Every journey begins and ends in Him alone.
Thank you, Jesus, for that Fact.
