A man of many companions may come to ruin,
but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
-- Proverbs 18:24
How great you are, O Sovereign LORD!
There is no one like you, and there is no God but you,
as we have heard with our own ears.
2 Samuel 7:22
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you
another advocate to help you and be with you forever
the Spirit of truth.
The world cannot accept him,
because it neither sees him nor knows him.
But you know him,
for he lives with you and will be in you.
The Holy Spirit has been sent to give us counsel and a pathway to truth.
We think of truth as a body of knowledge
to convince us of right against wrong,
but Jesus meant something else.
Earlier in this chapter Jesus states that He is the way,
the truth, the light. In other words,
truth is not sets of answers,
but a person – Jesus Christ.
Truth is the tree of life,
and not the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
We want easy, set solutions,
but the Holy Spirit wants to give us truth
and ultimately – life itself.
