“For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.” – 3 John V3
Beloved, we can judge of the secret of a soul by their manifestation in a man’s conversation. So be it ours to-day, O gracious Spirit, let us be ruled and governed by Thy divine authority, so that nothing false or sinful may reign in our hearts, lest it extend its malignant influence to our daily walk among men. Truth must enter into the soul, penetrate and saturate it, or else it is of no value. Scriptures accepted by the heart, is as food digested, which by assimilation, sustains and builds up the body. In us truth must be a living force, an active energy, an indwelling reality, a part of our being. If it be in us, we cannot henceforth part with it. A man may lose his garments or his limbs, but his inward parts are vital, and cannot be torn away without absolute loss of life. A believer can die, but he cannot deny the truth.
It is a rule of nature that the inward affects the outward, when therefore, the truth is kindled within, its brightness soon beams forth in the outward life and conversation. To walk in the truth, imports a life of integrity, holiness, faithfulness, and simplicity-the natural product of those principles of truth which the gospel teaches, and which the Spirit of God enables us to receive. O Heavenly Father, may we as from today, walk in the truth of Christ. Amen!
JESUS LOVES YOU.
Start your day with Jesus.
Beloved have a blessed day.
