Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 51

Thinking about God

John 14:26

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26.

Our natural mind doesn’t think correctly concerning the things of God. Often, our first reaction to a thing is pure, fleshly thinking. It is God’s holy spirit who corrects this corrupt thinking. My prayer for us today, dear friend, is that we will comply with the holy spirit as He coaches us through this life and coaxes us into God’s kingdom. Amen.

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 41

Keeping His Commandments

John 14:15

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

When you go to work for someone and put in your time and do a good job, you expect to get paid, right? If you agree to work for someone and payment is discussed, would it be right to expect the pay if you do no work? Well, there are people who expect God’s blessing without ever spending time with Him or even trying to obey Him.

Don’t you think we should follow His teachings if we expect Him to answer our prayers? In John 14:15, Jesus said: “If you love me, keep my commandments.” That’s pretty simple, right? Let’s show Jesus how much we love him, today and always.

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 28

Peace through Christ

John 14:27

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

Have you ever wondered, with so many people talking about peace and desiring peace, why is there so little peace in the world? I mean, here we are in the modern world – there have been wars throughout history, why haven’t we gotten beyond the fighting thing? Even in families there’s still fighting and fussing.

Listen to what Jesus said in John 14:27: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Peace with God through Jesus Christ gives us calm assurance in any situation, friend.

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 6

Jesus is the Word
John 1

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

“In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth.” (Genesis 1:1). “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made” (John 1, 1 and 3)The Word became flesh; the Word had power to create. The Word was God.

Therein lies the distinction between Jesus Christ and all other gods, spiritual leaders, religious constructs and “-ism”s. It turns out that Jesus, the Word of God, is God. So when Jesus says “I am the way, the truth, and the life; No one comes to the Father but by me,” (John 14:6) he’s speaking truth from a position of ultimate authority and power. If you are in Christ, you have the assurance that all the promises God made concerning you are true.
