The Leaven of Truth at Work

Near the close of his ministry, Jesus told his disciples, "I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever." The Master referred to this Comforter as "the Spirit of truth" and said, " The Comforter . . . shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you" (see John 14).

This Comforter not only is unfolding what we need to know of Truth in order that we may be free from error, but is rousing us to understand the spiritual meaning of everything Jesus taught.

As yeast has a leavening effect in making bread, producing fermentation and raising the dough, so the leaven of Truth brings forth a higher moral and spiritual manifestation as the spiritual idea, or Christ, permeates human consciousness.
