Choosing the Right Guide

February 2, 2020

We live in a “self-help” world, where we’re left to find the resources we need (well, there’s “You Tube”!) for just about every need or circumstance that touches our lives.

Jesus, on the other hand, promised that we’re not left to our own devices. Before He was crucified and resurrected, He said to his followers -"It's actually best for you that I go away, because if I don't, the Helper won't come to you. But if I do … go away, He will come because, I will send Him to you … And when He, the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you" (John 16:13).

Now that’s something! Our own personal guide to help us …

know what we need to know

get where we need to go

say the right things

wait for God’s timing

resist the temptations of self-indulgence, and

avoid dangers and mistakes.

How could anything be better, than having God’s spirit guiding us, personally through life?
