Jesus said to his disciples, “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.
“He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.”
“You can’t handle the truth”
Good Morning Gentle Readers
Well I had to quote “A Few Good Men” for this reflection, I just had to. Today Jesus tells the disciples that they can’t just know the truth, that they can’t just be told and its done, and he right you have to live the truth, you have to walk the road to know it. While I am sure that Jesus was a fantastic speaker nothing he could have said would have been enough to give these people the understanding that they needed to continue on in the ministry that they had chosen. Like them, we need to walk the road that takes us to the Lord, and while it is a wonderful journey there are hard parts that we need help with and that’s where the Holy Spirit, the advocate comes in, yes we, like them, walk with God.
Today as you go down the road, take a moment to speak with the Lord, he is always ready to help, and yes he can handle our truths.
Take Care and God Bless
