A good friend wrote this. It was so good; I just have to share 🙂
“God’s Word shares with you that Jesus said, “I AM the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also.”(John 14:6)
Know that we come to the final attribute of God to be covered in our brief examination of His Character. Jesus equates Himself with ” the Truth” and since Christ IS Lord over all, we understand that Truth IS fundamental to His Divine Nature.
Scripture repeatedly teaches the sanctity of truth. The evil one is called a “liar” and the “father of lies”, showing you that the opposite of what IS True is not holy. Truth is described as the sum of your Creator’s Word, and reminds us of how the Lord draws near only to those who call upon Him in truth. Jesus tells us it is better not to swear an oath at all if you have no intent to keep it. Truth IS not only to be believed in but also an action to be performed. Truly, it IS SO easy to falsely claim to know the truth but not live it out.
Truth IS also something that you do, and we are not faithful to the Lord if we are not concerned to walk in His True Way. This does not mean that we are perfect in obedience, but it DOES mean that you repent whenever you find yourself living contrary to His Standards.
Truth IS that which conforms to reality. Though we may not accurately perceive or understand the Real Truth at times, the same does NOT apply to the Almighty. Therefore, truth IS that which conforms to be real as it is perceived by God. He knows ALL things, and SO we can trust anything He reveals to you in Scripture, through His Holy Spirit. Truth IS not defined by your own standards – it IS determined by the Source of Truth Himself.
Truth IS like a mirror – it reflects exactly what it sees. Sometimes it is inconvenient because the reflection is not what you want to see. Your Heavenly Father crosses your path with those whom become a mirror for you. They become that reflection for you to be able to see yourself. Then, it IS up to you if what you are looking at is acceptable or not. Either way, an action IS needed to be performed. That is your personal choice – not anyone else. Thank God that He IS there ALWAYS to help you – on the Way, and the Truth, and the Life.
My thoughts and prayers are that you seek God’s Truth. That when your reflection is inconvenient, that your action IS to seek His Face – to accept Jesus and His Blood that was shed for you. That you walk in His True Way, now and forever. In Jesus’ Name. Thy Will be done. Amen. Peace.”
Prepare, Pray & Be Ready 🙂
