He will give you another Helper . . . the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. John 14:16-17
When asked about our societal issues, Pastor Tony Evans said earlier this year, “Our identity is to be rooted in the Imago Dei, in the image of God. But we’ve gotten so ingrained in the thinking of the culture, that we wind up being parakeets to what the society is saying, rather than taking a solid, loving but clear stance on what God is saying.”
Isn’t that the truth! Our current culture can be deceiving. Instead of sharing biblical truth, society spreads falsehoods. It practices duplicity; it does not glorify God. Instead, it has begun glorifying dishonesty and a lack of morality.
That is why our Heavenly Father gave us a Helper in the Holy Spirit. When we encounter deceit—knowingly or unknowingly—our Helper points us to the Truth—God’s Word.
If you are feeling confused by all the “truth” in our world, call upon the Helper today for support; the real Truth will be revealed to you.
God has given us the Holy Spirit to illuminate our minds. He is eyes and understanding to us. A. W. Tozer
