Second OpinionDaily Thoughts
John 14:16 “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever”
Another Counselor? So there’s more than one? What other counselor was Jesus referring to?
John 4:24 “God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth”
We are instructed to live (worship) according to two counselors; spirit and truth. Their names are the Spirit and Scripture. The other counselor that Jesus was referring to was the teaching he left his, not just in the gospels but all throughout scripture.
John 8:17 “In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two men is valid”
Spirit and scripture work hand in hand to guide is through life, they are our very own life-experts. If we are not sure of what one is saying then we can refer to the other for a second opinion. They will always be in agreement, they will always be consistent with one-another.
What you don’t understand in Scripture, ask the Spirit to reveal.
What you don’t trust in the Spirit, ask Scripture to confirm.
