Daily Reading: 28th September 2015

John 16.14-15

14 He will bring glory to Me because what He receives from Me He will announce to you.

15 All things which the Father has are Mine, because of this I said that He (the Holy Spirit) receives from Me and makes it known to you.

Jesus said that the Holy Spirit brings glory to Jesus. We know that glory means to give someone the highest place, the greatest esteem, and the peak of regard.

This is the work of the Holy Spirit within us. He will always lead us to look at Jesus.

Whereas the teachers in this world will focus more on their subject matter.

The objective of teachers is to pass on to their pupils what they have learnt. Teacher or mentors, in whatever profession, spend a long time being taught and gathering the information that they will need to teach pupils.

This learning process never ceases.

I have taught hundreds of people to drive; also I have taught dozens of people to become driving instructors. My objective was to pass on to my students what I had already learnt, and to develop this.

As a teacher of the word of God my objective goes beyond teaching the word of God. It is primarily to introduce others to Jesus. It is to show others the wonder and beauty of Jesus; it is to reveal something of His awesomeness; it is to lead others to see that Jesus is The Way, The Truth, and The Life, and that He is the only way to the Father.

It is to honour Jesus in all things.

The Holy Spirit honours, glorifies Jesus through announcing what He receives from Jesus.

Here is a wonderful truth: it is that Jesus still has things He wants to pass on to us, and He does this through the Holy Spirit.

God has not finished talking to us. He is not silent. Throughout our lives God has more to say to us, and He does it through the Holy Spirit living within us.

Therefore, we must take to heart the words from Revelation: The one who has ears must hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
