Weekly Devotionals 2006
 
Week 20
 
"These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you.
As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him." 1 John 2:26-27
 
Do you see it? Again John is reminding us of important truths. We all need reminders. John repeats truths for us to also be reminded.
 
In verse 26 John encourages us to remember his words of truth. The continual battle for truth is raging and relentless. Deceivers are among us!
 
John was so thankful for the Gift of the Holy Spirit. Jesus was faithful to His promise in anointing believers with this precious Gift. John reminds the believers that the Holy Spirit will instruct, convict, reveal, give wisdom continually if the believer is willing to listen, and learn from his instruction as found in the Scripture. John knew that it was vital to the believers to know the truth from a lie.
 
Isaiah describes the Holy Spirit's credentials quite well. (Is.11:2) Listen to these words: "The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him (Jesus), the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and strength, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD." All these attributes describe the Spirit life in a believer. Wow!
 
Isn't it wonderful. We have a storehouse of God within to help us through this difficult life we live in the flesh. He is our Teacher. He is our Guide. He is our Comforter!
 
QUESTIONS TO PONDER
 
How is your schooling in the Holy Spirit developing your faith in action today?
What have you learned lately about deceivers in our midst?
How does the Bible confirm your true understanding?
 
Our first defense is found in the power of the Holy Spirit. He is ready to help us defend the faith. Let's let Him teach us new and exciting things today and let's speak forth the truth in love!
 
Grace and Peace to all,
Sandra Davis for the team
