Illuminator

“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.” (John 16:13)

French army engineers who were part of Napoleon’s Egypt campaign discovered a stone slab in 1799 while making repairs to a fort near the town of Rashid (Rosetta). The artifact came into possession of the British after they defeated the French in Egypt in 1801. That stone, the Rosetta Stone, would be one of the most important archaeological finds in the nineteenth century, helping unlock the mysteries of the ancient Egyptian writing know as hieroglyphics.

For many, much of Scripture is also a deep mystery. But Jesus tells His followers, in John 16, that after He leaves, that He would send the Spirit of God to help them understand the truth they have been taught. The Holy Spirit is our “Rosetta Stone” to help us understand the Word of God.

Jesus knew His followers would have many questions after His death, resurrection, and ascension, so the Holy Spirit was given to believers to illuminate their hearts (Ephesians 1:18), to help and to guide them as they read. It is a glorious ministry of the Spirit that He opens the minds of His followers to understand the Scriptures (see: Luke 24:45) so that we can know and obey His Word. “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you” (John 14:26).

We are not promised absolute understanding of Scripture, but we can have confidence that with the Holy Spirit’s help, we can understand everything necessary for us to follow Jesus. He will guide us to all truth.

Question: Do you spend daily time in the Word of God? Are you allowing the Holy Spirit to guide you into all truth?

Challenge: Read John 16 and ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand Jesus’ teaching.

Prayer: Thank You Lord for sending Your Holy Spirit to help and guide me. Help me to gain a better understanding of the wisdom You provide.
