“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.” –John 16: 12-13a
What won’t Jesus tell us, that we can’t bear? This question has always fascinated me. Are these things about God, about himself, about ourselves? Does Jesus not consider us strong enough to know this truth? We aren’t ready to know all truth, but we are ready for some. Opening to the Spirit means opening to this way of truth, but it is vital that that be the truth from God, and not from some other spirit.
Vibrant Spirit, blow through us the truth that can come only from God, and give us the discernment to know when it is you bringing that truth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
