I may be done with this one attribute of the Spirit. I leave you today with a few references for you to work through and ponder. May you have a “lightbulb” moment as you open the Word and discover the truth of God within.
The Holy Spirit as the Teacher:
- Reveals the things of God – 1 Cor. 2:10, 13
- Reveals the things of Christ – John 16:14
- Reveals the future – Luke 2:26; Acts 21:11
- Brings the words of Christ to remembrance – John 14:26
- Directs in the way of godliness – Isaiah 30:21
- Teaches saints to answer persecutors – Mark 13:11
- Enables ministers to teach – 1 Cor. 12:8
- Guides into all truth – John 14:26
- Directs the decisions of the Church – Acts 15:28
(My source for this was Torrey’s New Topical Textbook: A Scriptural Text Book for the Use of Ministers, Teachers, and All Christian Workers, Logos Research Systems, Inc.).
So, I hope you are convinced that you do not have to be a biblical scholar to get into the Word. After all, you have the best teacher on your side who is sure to guide you in all truth so you can extract the precious from among the worthless.
Pray. Open the Book. Trust the Spirit to teach you the things of God. Apply what you learn to your life, day in and day out.
