For many of Christians, no matter how many church services we attend, podcasts we listen to, or conferences we sign up for, we often feel a deep sense of emptiness or void in our relationships with Jesus. Feelings of being orphaned by God, divorced from His family, and enslaved to our sins, consume our hearts. We do everything we can to try and fill our spiritual emptiness, but nothing seems to change. Despite our best efforts to apply what we are learning from our daily Bible readings and church’s weekly sermons, what we “know” in theory rarely becomes what we encounter on a day to day basis. Because of this, our relationships with Jesus are in desperate need of rejuvenation.
In John 16:13, Jesus says, “When the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all truth.”. Within this passage, Jesus teaches his followers that it is by the guiding work of the Holy Spirit that we will encounter the truths of God’s Word that brings us life. The Spirit will be the active agent in guiding our hearts to God's loving truths for our lives. Therefore, Spirit-Filled Truth speaks to the longing many Christians have to encounter God’s truths for themselves, and how His presence alone can satisfy their deepest needs by means of:
- Unveiling who the Spirit of Truth is, and our need for His guidance in our lives.
- Illustrating how to walk in our identity as adopted children of God.
- Revealing how to actively be a part of God’s family.
- Displaying how to be used as effective ambassadors for His Kingdom.
