The Holy Spirit is Our Guide. Wednesday of the Sixth Week of Easter


Breakfast with The Word. Wednesday of the Sixth Week of Easter


 John 16:12-15


 The Holy Spirit is Our Guide.


A guide is one who shows or indicates the way to someone. In clear terms, A guide is someone who leads you to a destination. He interprets things you do not truly understand and helps you come to a knowledge of something or someone.


With a trusted one you must certainly reach your destination. From the gospel of today, Jesus tells the disciples that the Holy Spirit will lead them to the complete truth. In essence, the Holy Spirit is our guide.


What the Advocate, the Spirit of God would do is to guide them into the whole truth. He would interpret and help them understand more the mysteries of the Kingdom.


Therefore, the surest way to understand God more and whatever He is doing around us is an intimate relationship with the Spirit of God.

The Holy Spirit is our guide when it comes to wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Therefore, the Holy Spirit is our guide when it comes to how we can effectively work for God.


With the Holy Spirit, Peter converted three thousand men at a stretch ( Acts 2:14-41). With Him, Philip transformed the whole of Samaria (Acts 8:4-40). Therefore, we need the Holy Spirit in our work and our lives. He makes a way where there is no way.

 I still have Many Things to Tell You



One wonders what else again Jesus wants to teach his apostles. He has been with them for three good years and has taught them immensely. This is an indication that life is a process.


The knowledge of God is a gradual and continuous process and can only be made possible if we allow ourselves to be helped by the Holy Spirit. Let us not act as if we know everything.Therefore, we have to work and walk with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is our guide.


Also, the Holy Spirit of God works with the Church and guides the Church. Jesus promises the presence of His Spirit with the Church. This is the reason we have to listen to the Church.


You Need the Church.


The Holy Spirit has come to lead us to the complete truth. This is essentially a promise to the community of the disciples, a promise to the Church. Let us always draw close to the Church to feed our hungry souls.


It is important for our knowledge and personal peace of mind that I trust the Church and Her teachings. Christ is with His Church always, to the end of the world.

The problem is rather than letting the Spirit of God guide us, we subject ourselves to false teaching us many find on social media. Instead of listening to the Church in matters of faith and morals, we rush to swallow whatever we see on the internet. Today Jesus tells the disciples, “

‘I still have many things to say to you

but they would be too much for you now.

But when the Spirit of truth comes

he will lead you to the complete truth.


In Matthew 28:20, Jesus also promises to be with the Church until the end of time. This is the reason we have to listen to the Church. The Spirit of God is with the Church to teach more divine truths necessary for our salvation. The Holy Spirit guides the Church and continues to guide the Church until the end of time.


 Always with the Spirit.


We need the Holy Spirit now and then even in our daily lives to guide us. Ask Him for directions in the midst of confusion, ask Him for more inspiration when you want to perform a task, ask Him for help during challenges and troubles. We need Him now and always.

We need the Holy Spirit. Sometimes, we subject ourselves to worldly influence and ignore Him totally or “impose upon him” what we have already decided. Follow His teachings through the Church. He will increase your understanding.


So, let the Holy Spirit be part of your life, let Him be part of your decisions. He is the only trusted guide because He comes from the Father and the Son. He knows everything we need for everything.


May the Holy Spirit of God always and ever dwell with you and may He fill you with wisdom to succeed wherever you are Amen
