It is important to God that His children walk in the truth of His Holy word, and we are not left alone to do so as the Holy Spirit He gives guides us into the truth we as Christians stand for. (John 16:13-15) Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you……… ( John 14:16-17).
When we first learned and accepted the truth of the word we are begotten of Him, while we stand for the truth it actually has the power to save our soul and the soul of those who hear us. (James 1:18-21) Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
God knows those who love and follow Him and when we are called to do His will and not our own it is then our conversation has the ability to save others who hear Him through us! (1 Timothy 4:15-16) Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
How many today stand in their own truth of what they think is in line with scripture, while living a life far from the truth of God or are ashamed of Christ and what He stands for. It will not be till the kingdom of God will what a person has stood for be revealed and if we took a stand for the truth of His will or that of our own! (Luke 9:23-27).
It is a great honor to serve the Lord in His Spirit of truth, and when we wholeheartedly turn to Him in repentance there is a freedom the world cannot give us.(2 Corinthians 3:14-18) But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.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……. (John 4:23-24).
