I aim to make this short and sweet because I think it is so important. You must know the truth – not the truth according to me, or your pastor, or your best friend or even your mama. You must know the truth and you must let that truth dwell inside of you. If you do not actively pursue that truth, you will be misled – even by well-meaning people.
The ultimate Truth is God’s Word. Everything you hear should be tested upon God’s Truth. When you read or hear from me, it is my prayer that you will open your bible and find the truth for yourself and that if I am wrong that you will lovingly bring it to my attention!
We cannot bend the truth to make it feel good or sound good or to ease our conscious. We cannot dwell with God if we do not know God! We cannot know God without knowing His Word! A shelf full of bibles and attending church every Sunday may “look” good but I encourage you to take the bibles off the shelf, carry them with you (as you do your cell phone) and get to know the words inside. Get to know the God who gives life! Seek Him and your life will be changed for eternity!
Don’t take my word for it. Open His Word and see for yourself!
“Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, ‘If you continue in my word, you really are my disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.'”
John 8:31-32 CSB
Seek the Truth! Know the Truth! Share the Truth! Be well! Take time to Dwell!
John 14:6-7 CSB
Lord, thank you! thank you for giving us your word so that we may know you! Thank you for seeking us and giving us the desire to seek you! Thank you for giving us the tools to know the truth and to be alert when we hear untruths! We ask you to be with us, guide us and be with those who do not know your truth. May we be beacons of your light for all to see. You are the way, the truth and the life! Forever and ever! Amen
