A phrase I have often heard lately is people wanting ‘to speak my truth.’ When I hear this I understand everyone has a unique perspective on their side of the story, how we all uniquely interpret events and circumstances, but it this actually ‘the Truth?’ As followers of Jesus we have a different, higher, standard of what constitutes truth. This does not mean all followers of Jesus everywhere agree on everything. We don’t. And disagreement is okay. We agree on the essentials and this is more of the work of the Holy Spirit. Jesus says to us in John 16.5-15 that it is to our advantage for Him to ascend to the Father and the Spirit will guide us deeper into all Truth. We will unpack this some more as we look at “One Spirit: Truth” on Sunday. Hope to see you there!
