Make Everything Plain

Samsung or iPhone?

In his sermon last night, Pastor Monte Knudsen talked about two phone operating systems.

“Samsung uses the Android operating system and the iPhone uses IOS. There are also two operating systems on earth – man’s way and God’s way.” Monte Knudsen

Man’s way

Proverbs 14:12, 13, “There’s a way of life that looks harmless enough; look again – it leads straight to hell. Sure, the people appear to be having a good time, but all that laughter will end in heartbreak.” The Message

God’s Way

Isaiah 55:8, 9, “I don’t think the way you think. The way you work isn’t the way I work.” God’s Decree. “For as the sky soars high above the earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think.” The Message

Jesus said…

John 14:6, “Jesus said, ‘I am the Road, also the Truth, also the Life. No one gets to the Father apart from Me.’ ” The Message

What if you are unsure on your road? God sent a helper.

John 14:16, 17, 19, “I will talk to the Father, and He’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you. This Friend is the Spirit of Truth. The godless world cannot take Him in because it doesn’t have the eyes to see Him, doesn’t know what to look for. But you know Him already because He has been staying with you, and will even be in you!…In just a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you’re going to see Me because I am alive and you’re about to come alive.” The Message

The disciples came alive on Pentecost Sunday when the “Spirit of Truth,” the “Holy Spirit,” came.

John 14:26, “The Friend, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send at My request, will make everything plain to you.” The Message

Jesus plainly told Peter he would die for Him. And that he would deny Him three times before the morning, John 13:38. But after saying this, He said…

John 14:1, “Don’t let this throw you. You trust God, don’t you? Trust Me.” The Message

Dear Father God,

Thank you for giving me your “Spirit of Truth” because after He filled me, I came alive. It was like switching from a black and white picture to the clearest, crispest color available. Or the difference between looking at something with a flashlight or looking at it with a spotlight.

And all I had to do was ask.

For all believers who ask you to fill them with your “Spirit of Truth,” I pray that You quickly guide them to a church where they can learn more.

In the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Amen
