The Truth

"Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth." John 17:17 KJV.

Let us consider the importance of God's truth, His holy and divine word, the Bible.

1.  God's Truth is obtainable and available. "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." [John 8:32; John 17:17].
2.  God's truth is valuable and essential to being saved: "Buy the  truth and sell it not."  [Proverbs 23:23], "Who will have all men to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the truth" [I Tim 2:4].
3.  Not everyone loves God's truth:  "they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved" [II Thessalonians 2:10].
4.  Not everyone believes the truth: "Who believed not the truth"  [II Thessalonians 2:12].
5.  A person must not only believe the truth, the truth must be obeyed in order to be born again: "Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth" [I Peter 1:22-25].

6.  After becoming a Christian one must continue to walk in the truth to please God: "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth" [III John 4; II John 4].

7.  After becoming a Christian it is possible to "err from the truth"  [James 5:19-20; II Timothy 2:15-18].
8.  We will be judged by God's truth: [John 12:48; Psalms 96:13].
9.  Only by studying, believing, loving, and obeying God's truth can we be sure that we are saved [1 John 2:3-6; 3:19].
