“Your Word is Truth” #866

Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. (John 17:17, NKJV)

In an age when many people possess the mind of Pilate (who said, “What is truth?”), faithful Christians continue to affirm God’s word as truth (Jno. 18:38). Please note it is God’s word that is truth, not the word of human beings. The Bible is not a collection of the opinions men, or the fables of fallible men; it is the inspired, inerrant, communication of the mind of God to the world (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 1 Cor. 2:10-13; 14:37). Divine truth has the power to sanctify sinners (“to purify, to consecrate, to make holy,” Jno. 17:19). Christians are “sanctified in Christ Jesus” and therefore, “called saints” (1 Cor. 1:2). The “Holy Scriptures” make us wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 3:15). Thus, when we believe and obey truth, we are set apart from sin and set apart unto Christ (2 Thess. 2:13-14). Have faith that God’s word is truth. It has power to save you and power to lead your life in holy and godly conduct.
