We get conflicting instructions on how to live a Christian life.
One teacher says do this, and another says to do that.
Even our denominations are split on how to interpret the Word. What did God mean when he directed the Apostles to write the words in the gospel? Are we really supposed to do that?
God knew there would be dissention about the meaning of the Word. Think about this: It’s been thousands of years since the original words of the Bible were written. How have words, phrases, and expressions changed in that time?
King James, some teachers cry. It’s the only version of the Bible we should use. Quit changing the Word of God.
Yet, we attempt to read Shakespeare, and unless we’re trained in the speech of the day, it’s nearly impossible to understand.
Where do we get our training to understand the Word of God?
John 16:13 gives us God’s solution.
“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.”
Who is the Spirit of Truth? He is the Holy Ghost, called by many the Holy Spirit. He is our gift from the Father to clarify what thousands of years of societal changes have inflicted on God’s Word.
Let’s read and study the Bible. Then allow the Holy Spirit to guide us into understanding. He is our revelation, our guide, our avenue into the perfect understanding of the person of Jesus and the holy nature of our Lord.
God is our guide, and in the Holy Spirit, his will becomes perfectly clear.
