Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 6th October

The Leadership of Our Guide

However, when he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth. (John 16:13)

Truth is like a vast cavern that we desire to enter, but we are not able to traverse alone. At the entrance it is clear and bright; but if we would go further and explore its innermost recesses, we must have a guide or we shall lose ourselves. The Holy Spirit, who knows all truth, is the appointed guide of all true believers, and He conducts them from one inner chamber to another, so that they behold the deep things of God, and His secret is made plain to them.

What a promise! “All truth” we wish to learn, that we may not be one-sided and out of balance. We would not be willingly ignorant of any part of revelation, lest we should miss blessing or incur sin. The Spirit of God has come that He may guide us into all truth: let us with obedient hearts hear His words and follow His lead.
