Daily Bible Study - kindly provided by Premier and the Bible Society

Do have a look at the Premier Daily Bible reading below. It is really so good.

I am writing these things to warn you about those who want to lead you astray. But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true—it is not a lie. 1 John 2:26-27

Wednesday 10 August

Our world today is very different from the one that John knew, but I suspect that if he was addressing us, he wouldn’t have changed his message at all. The Christians he was speaking to were under constant attack from false teachers and he was eager that they should be strong in their faith and able to stand up to every challenge. These days, anyone with access to the internet can have instant connection to an unlimited number of religions and philosophies. It could all be very bewildering and confusing.

John would want to offer us the same encouragement that he brought 1,900 years ago. The Holy Spirit is still our completely reliable teacher. He teaches us everything that we need to know. Towards the end of his ministry, Jesus told his disciples that it was to their advantage that he left them because when he went, the Holy Spirit would be sent to them. (John 16.7) He described the Holy Spirit as the advocate or paraclete. This Greek word literally means ‘someone who draws alongside us’. I’ve always found it helpful to think of the Holy Spirit as the supreme friend. He understands and loves us perfectly and is able to lead us into all truth. If we are relying on him then we can

be confident as we face challenges from other philosophies and religions.

In my experience, the Holy Spirit uses lots of different ways to teach us. He speaks through the Bible and prayer, but also through other Christians, music, art, literature and nature. Our role is to be open to him, listening out for his voice, but doing so with the confidence of knowing that he loves to share his truth with us.

QUESTION

What has the Holy Spirit been teaching you recently?

PRAYER

Lord God, thank you for sending us your Holy Spirit. Help me to be constantly listening to his voice so that Jesus will be praised in all that I do. Amen

Our focus today is all about watching, waiting and building faith – and then crucially catching the wave of faith as we build our spiritual treasure of faith. 

The art of surfing is waiting and watching for the big wave and then launching to catch the power of the wave. Momentarily we have to travel as fast as the wave if we are to share in the power of the wave. More..
