Truth….will set you free
We are told to acquire it, no matter the cost, and to never relinquish it once it is in our possession.
Buy truth, and do not sell it; buy wisdom, instruction, and understanding.
God delights in the man who posses it.
Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.
God is near the man whose conversation is guided by it.
The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
True worship requires it.
But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.
It brings freedom.
“and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
A relationship with the Father is made possible by it.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
It brings sanctification and cleansing.
Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.
It holds our faith and everything we believe and confess together.
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
He demands that truth resides in our inward parts because He is the Truth, and the center of our life is where He delights to dwell. For the lost, afflicted, weak and needy, no other word contains greater meaning, power, hope, or reward? Jesus Christ the Way, Truth, and Life purifies the sin afflicted heart and unshackles the weary and groaning prisoner. Once given free reign within the heart of man, the liberating power of truth ignites the irrepressible worship of the redeemed.
Truth may be intangible and unseen, but it’s fruit and the effect of its presence upon the heart and life of mankind is not. I praise the Lord, because we have seen the truth, and felt its imprint seared eternally upon our hearts, life, and marriage. My prayer for you today has been that you would be empowered by the truth that brought you liberty, and that you would cherish the truth that transformed your life. I pray that you would cling tightly to it, be guided by it, and live your life according to it. May you weigh every thought, impulse, and decision with the light of Truth. May He guide your heart and mind today and as you seek truth may you find the sweet presence of He who is Truth!
