His Truth Will Set You Free

Listen to what Jesus says; “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)

The Spirit Speaks – To My Friend



Dear friend,

I, the Spirit of Jesus Christ, am your friend; your best friend. A true friend is someone who is always there for you, when you need them. You can tell them anything… your problems, your joys, your worries, your criticisms… and they will not judge, they will not correct you, they will not pretend they have all the answers. But they will listen, and they will understand, and sometimes they may give you gentle advice that is sincere and loving and truly helpful. I am such a friend, for you.

Please look into your heart and see that you’re not alone, ever. I am with you always. Whether you feel my presence or not, I am here, within you. I will never leave you.

How does it feel to have the Spirit of God, the creator of all that exists, as your best friend, living within you, sharing your life, your joys and pains, with you?

First, my writing isn't about me. Don’t want the attention, don’t want to feed my ravenous ego (yep, I’m just a typical pride-plagued human). But I love writing - it gets me out of bed when it's way too dark, just so I can do some writing before heading off to work. I write because I’m passionate about God, Jesus, His Spirit, and His truth. And, I feel the Holy Spirit gets shortchanged in the world we call Christianity. The truth is sometimes lacking too.
