He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.John 14:17
The Spirit of Truth
The Holy Spirit is the one who speaks truth over your life. When the world is whispering lies in your life, He shouts the truth to drown out the lies. It would be impossible to go through this life if we didn’t have the Holy Spirit giving the words of truth to us. We would be easily swayed by the world.
This verse says that the world cannot receive the Holy Spirit because it does not look for him; therefore, it does not recognize him. This is why they deny what that church says and think that the ways we live are foolish. They do not seek the truth because they are not looking for the truth. Spend some time in prayer today, asking God to help you speak words of truth when the world tries to tell you lies.
A Prayer to Remember
The world can not recognize you because they do not have you. Help me speak words of truth and share the gospel with all I meet. Amen.
