Scripture and the Holy Spirit

Re:Verse passage – John 14:15-31 (day five)

“These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you. 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 said to you.” 14:25-26

Jesus’ words reveal how the scriptures would be written and protected- with and through the Holy Spirit. The apostle Paul will write later, “Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit.”  1  Corinthiams 2:12-13

The Holy Spirit would remind and make clear to the disciples the words and actions of Jesus. The Spirit inspired John to remember and teach what he had seen and learned.

We should come to the scriptures amazed and expectant. Ask the Spirit who inspired their writing to illuminate their reading.

One thought on “Scripture and the Holy Spirit”

  1. This blog reminded us that we need to make sure we are listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit, not the voice of our own desires or the voice of other human beings.

    One way we know whether we are listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit is to check against the truth of God’s Word. I am convinced.
