December 22, 2019: SOAP #3671:  John 12-14

Scripture:  John (NIV) 14:25 “All this I have spokenwhile still with you. 26 But the Counsellor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Fatherwill send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you ofeverything I have said to you.

Observation:  RecentlyI was watching a news program on television and noticed how they were able toplay comments various politicians had previously made.  The technology available today should makeevery politician careful in speaking. Many politicians have said things theynow regret.  They have switched theirstance on various subjects and now they would like us and the news media toforget what they previously said!  

No so with Jesus.  He wants us toremember 'everything' He has said.  Hehas even sent the Holy Spirit to 'remind' us of 'everything' Jesus has toldus! 

Application:  Jesus is 'the way, the truth, and the life.'  He always has and always will speaktruth.  It is good for me to carefully readand remember the Bible.  The better Iknow God's word, the better I will be able to recognize God speaking to me andthe better I will be able to remember and understand what He is saying tome.   

Prayer:  Holy Spirit, as I open my heart and mind tothe scriptures each day, speak to me, help me remember, and grant meunderstanding.  Amen
