Let Truth Be the Light
One of God's greatest desires for us is that we come to know Him intimately. He made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may have constant fellowship with Him, laying the foundation for a powerful relationship that transforms our lives and causes us to become who we were created to be. However, in relating to God, we must be honest about living and walking in the truth.
Getting what we know as truth actually to become real in our hearts takes work. We have heard all the right answers and know the correct response, but we act as if we do not really believe it at times. The truth of what we believe is more determined by how we live than what we say.
To walk in the truth is to walk in the light, unashamed of how we live before both God and man. When we are walking in the truth, living out God's Word in our everyday lives, there is no need to deceive. The truth needs to make no apologies or excuses for its deeds.
In our journey with God, walking in His truth must be the standard by which we live. It is in God's Word that we find His truth. And if we trust Him and His Word, we will be people who not only hear His truths but who incorporate them into who we are.
The book The Day America Told the Truth reports that two out of three Americans believe that there is nothing wrong with telling a lie. To thrive in our journey of faith, we must be people who swim up the stream of modern culture and let truth be the light that declares who we serve — a Holy God who uses truth to bring us out of the darkness and into the light of His perfect plan for us.
Prayer: Lord, help me to live out the Truth of Your Word in all that I do. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
"But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God" (John 3:21).
