  • Taste, See, and Sing! Loving and Craving God’s Word

    Taste, See, and Sing! Loving and Craving God’s Word

    God gives us His law, precepts, rules, and commandments, to show us how to live. He offers His promises. He gives us His testimonies, which prove that He is faithful and able to fulfill those promises. Do I read the Bible out of love, eagerness, or obligation?

  • The Spirit of Truth in the Life of the Believer

    The Spirit of Truth in the Life of the Believer

    The Holy Spirit will speak to us as a reflection of His nature. He is the Spirit of Truth (John 14:16–17; 16:13). This is who He is. His very essence is truth. God’s Word is true because the Spirit of Truth inspired it and illuminates it to us.

    The Spirit of Truth and Scripture Memorization

    The Holy Spirit brings the teachings of Jesus to a disciple’s memory. Meditating on and memorizing Scripture will help us recognize God’s Word when we need it.

  • The Spirit of Truth and the Necessity of Scripture

    The Spirit of Truth and the Necessity of Scripture

    We cannot know God’s will without the Bible. We also cannot know it without the wisdom that the Holy Spirit gives. The two go hand in hand. We must rely on the Holy Spirit for wisdom, but He will use the Bible to impart wisdom to us, and He expects us to use the Bible to confirm whether He is the One Who is speaking to us.
