TRUE BLUE

 
"When He comes, however, being the Spirit of truth He will guide you to all truth." —John 16:13
 

Jesus calls Himself "the Way, and the Truth, and the Life" (Jn 14:6). He promises that the truth will set us free (Jn 8:32). He prays for us to be consecrated in truth (Jn 17:19). Jesus asks the Father to send the Spirit of truth (Jn 14:16-17).

The Lord is clearly preoccupied with the truth. When Jesus speaks of truth, He does not refer to information but relation. He is speaking of true love, a true friend, a spouse who is true. He speaks of faithfulness and commitment.

When Jesus promises the Spirit of truth, He promises that we will be guided into true relationships. The Spirit will guide us into friendships which will not break our hearts but be our lifelong strength and encouragement. The Spirit can do this because He knows our hearts and our futures (1 Cor 2:10-11; Jn 16:13). Receive the Spirit of true relationships and true love.

 
Prayer: Father, "what a friend we have in Jesus!" May we be true to You and true to others.
Promise: "He has set the day on which He is going to 'judge the world with justice' through a Man He has appointed — One Whom He has endorsed in the sight of all by raising Him from the dead." —Acts 17:31
Praise: After studying pagan philosophies, St. Justin arrived at the Truth, became Christian, and continued to seek Truth all his days.
