He Guides Us to Truth

But you have received the Holy Spirit, and He lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what He teaches is true – it is not a lie. So just as He has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ. (1 John 2:27 NLT)

To understand today’s verse, we need to read verses 18-25.  The believers that John is writing to already know the truth but there are some that he calls antichrists (those against Christ) that are trying to mislead them.  They were once believers but lost their way.  John says anyone who denies the Father and Son is an antichrist.

When we accept Christ as the son of God we receive the Holy Spirit, Christ in us.  The Holy Spirit guides us in learning and growing in Christ.  The Holy Spirit helps us discern the truth by helping us compare what others say with the Word of God so that we will not be led astray.  The Word of God is the gold standard.

Thank you, Jesus, for giving us your Holy Spirit so that you may dwell in us.  Guide us today in your truth.  In the most precious name of Jesus, we pray, amen.
