John 14: 16, 17 I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth.
Earlier in this gospel Jesus tells a Samaritan woman, “a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks” (4:23). We live in a deceptive world. People sometimes deceive us to get what they want from us. Can you really trust those commercials on TV? And we are certainly capable of deceiving ourselves. How do we know what is true? The Christian claim is that truth came to us in Jesus and comes to us as God touches our hearts and minds personally through this Spirit of truth. What do you think of when you hear the word “truth?” How do you find it?
