By-products of Truth

26 Jan

God’s Word: 2 John

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

The by-products of Truth are many.  Where My Truth abides love is the abiding presence.  Grace, mercy, peace, and joy flow from My heart to yours—into the heart of all who abide in My Truth, revealed through My Word, the Bible.  Ignore the Bible—ignore My Truth.  Read the Bible—live out My Truth and reap the blessed benefits I am eager to share with you.

When love is absent, Truth is absent.  When you know My Truth—it will set you free—to love others.  My love is not just something you give in order to get.  My love gives and gives and gives, regardless of what is received.  Jesus set the example for My love that gives until and even if it hurts.  My Truth, took on the flesh of Jesus Christ, and gave His all—for your salvation.

Loving others, on My behalf, elevates your service of love to the sacred.  Those who do not know My Truth still benefit from this fact.  Many offer incredible acts of service to others, because of the rush of the sacred that they receive.  But I am asking you to offer these acts of loving service not for the rush you receive, but for the honor of being My Ambassador of love. The by-products of living out My Truth flow from your life into the lives of countless others. When you understand My Truth you share My joy, My peace, My love, My concern for others; you step into My presence and the rush of the sacred you receive will give you a joy unspeakable and full of glory.

God’s Question for Me: How long has it been since you stepped into My presence through acts of unselfish love and service for another?

God’s Promise to Me: My Word is Truth.  Know My Truth and you will be set free!

My Song to God:    “Others”

Lord, help me live from day to day
In such a self-forgetful way
That even when I kneel to pray
My prayer shall be for—Others.

Refrain

Others, Lord, yes others,
Let this my motto be,
Help me to live for others,
That I may live like Thee.

Help me in all the work I do
To ever be sincere and true
And know that all I’d do for You
Must needs be done for—Others.

Refrain

Let “Self” be crucified and slain
And buried deep: and all in vain
May efforts be to rise again,
Unless to live for—Others.

Refrain

And when my work on earth is done,
And my new work in Heav’n’s begun,
May I forget the crown I’ve won,
While thinking still of—Others.

Refrain
