Reflection: Jesus said a lot when he was on this earth. And this passage tells us that He had a lot more He could say; but he chose not to tell us. Instead, the Spirit came to earth to help guide us and lead us to the truth.
This Sunday, we celebrate Holy Trinity Sunday. It’s the only day of the church year that is dedicated to a doctrine of the church. We say that we believe in God, the Father; God, the Son; and God, the Holy Spirit. Three in one! And this verse reminds us that they are interconnected, showing us God in different forms.
May you think this week about how the Spirit is guiding you to discern truth, wisdom, and gain knowledge.
