THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
In this world I have found a truth:
Just as I think to have found the “key” to success,
someone changes the lock!
2 John 4
I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth,
as we have received a commandment from the Father.
Just as the “elect lady and her children,” to whom this epistle is written,
Christians should be “walking in truth.”
Peripateo (per-ee-pat-eh'-o) is the Greek word from which “walking” is translated.
It means to walk around in, or be preoccupied with.
He says it is a “commandment from the Father” for us to “walk” in truth.
In fact Jesus said, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24)
Jesus also prayed that God would “Sanctify” His disciples “through thy truth:” for “Thy word is truth.” (John 17:17)
The truth of God’s Word which tells us we are constant sinners is painful, and brings humility to our souls.
The truth of God’s Word which tells us we can be forgiven at His feet in repentance is good news indeed.
The truth of God’s Word which tells us we can be accepted in Christ gives us irrefutable hope.
The truth of God’s Word which tells us our entire nature is changed upon surrender to Jesus, (2Cor. 5:17)
is the “truth” by which we should LIVE!
It becomes the FOCUS of our life!
And it is by THIS truth that we are changed, little by little, “from glory unto glory!”
2 Cor 3:18 says, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
Are you WALKING IN TRUTH?
If so, you are being changed, little by little, each day!
