The Spirit of Reality Comes[John 16:5-33]

The Spirit of Reality Comes

Let's Pray:

Lord, we thank You for Your presence all the time. Lord, You are the Spirit, so You are present with us all the time. Your presence means everything to us in our life and in our work.

Hymn:474
Key Verse:
John 16:13But when He, the Spirit of reality, comes, He will guide you into all the reality; for He will not speak from Himself, but what He hears He will speak; and He will declare to you the things that are coming.
Footnotes:
The work of the Spirit is, first, to (convict) the world. Second, as the Spirit of (reality) He guides the (believers) into all the reality; that is, He makes all that the Son is and has real to the believers. All that the Father is and has is (embodied) in the Son (Col. 2:9), and all that the Son is and has is (declared) as (reality) to the believers through the Spirit (vv. 14-15). This declaring is the (glorifying) of the Son with the Father. Hence, it is a matter of the Triune God being wrought into and (mingled) with the believers. Third, the Spirit (declares) the things that are to come, which are revealed mainly in Revelation. (See John 16:13 note 1)
