Scripture--John 16-John 18
Observation--This is such a powerful section—the trial before Pilate, the expanded section in the garden with Peter cutting off Malchus’s ear, Jesus praying for the disciples and for us! But the verse that stuck out to me was, 16:12, “I have much more to say to you, but right now it would be more than you could understand.” Jesus says that the Holy Spirit (Spirit of Truth) will come and reveal things to us that even Jesus couldn’t!
Application—What new things are you letting the Spirit teach you? How are you growing in your faith? Too often, we get stuck in our faith, stuck in our rut, and we forget the Spirit is working in us, with us, giving us new truths. Let us today learn what new things God is trying to teach us!
Prayer—Spirit of Truth—fall afresh on us! Spirit of Life—Open our eyes so we can see! Spirit of Love—Open our hearts to your leadings! Oh, thanks be to you, Creator, Savior, Spirit! Amen.
