I will never forget the helpless feeling the year I took trigonometry. Functions of cos, sin, tan and the hypotenuse were so hard for me to grasp. If only someone would come alongside to help me understand these functions, I was sure it would all come clear and I would pass the course.
Math, science, brain surgery or any other subject are not the hardest to understand. In fact, there is one subject that is impossible for any human to understand unless he is taught by one teacher. Paul says, “No one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:11b). The verse just before this says, “These things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.”
With this being so, I want to know, I want the Spirit to reveal truth and wisdom about everything. No wonder Jesus speaks of the Spirit and the “Helper” four times just in John’s Gospel (14:16, 26; 15:26; 16:7). Not only that, Jesus says of the Spirit that “He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you” (14:26). This is in addition to the fact that He will be with us forever (14:16), Jesus provides the most comprehensive guarantee that this teacher who is God will be with me all through life. I want to learn from Him in any and every circumstance!
Why do we not constantly appeal to Him to teach us? Why does the church ignore His presence by attempting over and over to run the church by human means? This is the height of grievance to the Spirit (Ephesians 4:30) who has been given to guide us into all the truth (John 16:13)? As ministers of the gospel, “we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.” (1 Corinthians 2:13). Seek this personal teacher to be your Helper and the power within to please God and bear Him fruit.
