Only Servants of Truth Can Know the Truth 惟有真理的僕人才能認識真理“(John 約翰福音 3:5-8)

Jesus answered, ‘Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, “You must be born again.” The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.’


If we read the Bible and be honest, we will admit that it is either obedience or inward blindness. We can fill our head full of knowledge, know the doctrine, take our stand and still be blind inwardly. Only the servants of truth (who decide to obey God) can ever know truth that will get down into their hearts. If we are willing to obey Lord Jesus, He will illuminate our spirit, inwardly enlighten us; the truth we have known will then be known spiritually, power will begin to flow up and out and we will find ourselves marvellously changed. In that great day of Christ’s return, all that will matter is whether we have been inwardly illuminated, inwardly regenerated, inwardly purified!


Prayer: Father God, one may cast away many vices, forsake many lusts in which one indulged, and conquer evil habits, but no one in the world can make oneself to be born of you. Indeed mankind does not need reformation but a radical conversion by the Holy Spirit! We do not necessarily understand everything about the wind, but we see its effects. May we let this wonderful truth get down into our heart helping us to step forward in reconfirming our birth by the Holy Spirit and our obedience to your word. Amen.
