Leadership

Leadership

Today’s Scripture Selection: John 16:13

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth.  He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”

When Jesus spoke of the time when he would leave his disciples; it frightened them.  Not only did they not want to go on without him; they didn’t see how they possibly could.  And they certainly wondered how they would manage to fulfill their own calling; the ministry they were to do in his name.

So he comforted them by speaking about the Spirit.

And he reminded them that they would be led by the Spirit – each step of the way ahead – even the difficult ones.

How wonderful it is that, two thousand years later, we can still hold on to that very leadership.

When we are

  • Uncertain
  • Afraid
  • Confused
  • Feeling confronted
  • Feeling inadequate

We too can hold on to that wonderful promise:

“When he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth.”

In a world that seems increasingly difficult to understand; in a world that seems increasingly hostile – we are not left to find our own way.  We are given, in the Spirit, over and over again, “the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”

Following that lead – how can we go far wrong?

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for leading me “in the Spirit”.
