To teach is to explain or remind someone of something that was not previously understood or forgotten. We thank God for the ministry gift of teachers in the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:28, Ephesians 4:11). We also thank Jesus who promised, “the Holy Spirit, whom my Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you” (John 14:26). How does the Holy Spirit teach? By highlighting and applying to our hearts the words of Scripture as we read them and especially the teachings of Jesus.
By giving us a personal understanding and application of God’s truth, perhaps even as human teachers are speaking. By giving us a revelation of God’s heart of love, mercy and grace. Finally, by personal revelation of the person and work of Jesus (Matthew 16:15-17, John 16:7-15).
Holy Spirit teach me! May You open my eyes to see and understand spiritual truths in Your word.
1 Corinthians 2:6-16
