Thy Word Is Truth
"Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth." John 17:17. God's word is truth. God's truth is powerful. The salvation that God offers to man is in a word. God does not lie. He speaks only truth. The word that He speaks to us has the power to save us. We hear the word, believe the word, and obey the word. The word of God has the power to sanctify us. We become fit for the service of God. The word of truth makes us worthy to serve God. As we obey the truth of God's word, our sins are cleansed. God's sanctification makes us pure. We become the agents of God's marvelous work of salvation. We not only believe His truth, but we live by His truth. The truth controls our choices and our actions. We teach that truth to others so that they might know the sanctification of God. As we are sanctified by God, we are used by God for His glory. Truth sets us apart. We become the special people of God by truth. As we live according to the truth, we are unlike the world about us. And, by the truth, we seek to make the world responsive to God. May the truth of God live in our hearts.
