The Spirit & The Scriptures

The Spirit and the Scriptures Sermon Illustration

The Holy Spirit guides us in understanding the truth of the Scriptures. The image that comes to mind here is of a father running alongside his daughter or son, holding on to the seat of the bike. As the child learns to balance, the parent guides the child in this new reality. In the same way, the Spirit leads us into all the implications of the truth that are bound up in the Bible. We’re not looking for a secret decoder ring, but to know Jesus more as we rely on the Spirit.
