Truth

19 Jan

God’s Word: 1 John 4:1-6

God’s Message to Me: (My interpretation of what God is saying to me through these verses)

Choose wisely your model for living!  The world offers all kinds of people, or so-called gods, to follow.  Some of them have done many good things and share many good ideas.  But what is the foundation of their teaching.  Is it built on rock or sand?  What about this teacher would be worthy of emulating?  What did he, or she, ever do for you?  What do they promise their followers?  Did they live a sacrificial life, above reproach, to show you the path to life?

Seek truth that endures the test of time and eternity.  Examine carefully what others tell you.  Don’t believe everything you hear.  By picking and choosing the teachings that give you comfort from this god or that god, or wise teachers, and putting together your own version of truth—you are standing on sandy ground.

My Word openly shares the truth that withstands all the storms of life. Mankind was on a downward spiral when I took on the form of a human, in flesh called Jesus, and personally visited planet earth.  I endured the same temptations and trials that you experience yet avoided sin at all costs—even to the point of death.  I endured what I didn’t deserve in order to provide you with what you don’t deserve—forgiveness and eternal life.  Let My love for you be your model for living.

God’s Question for Me: Are you seeking truth or simply looking for the easy path through life?

God’s Promise to Me: My Spirit, that abides with those who accept My truth, is stronger than anything in the world.  I am with you and give you strength whatever storms you may face.

My Song to God:

Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring,
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

Refrain:
Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
List’ning every moment to the Spirit’s call,
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.
