2 John 4 Are You Walking In The Truth?

It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us. 2 John 4

According to the world, truth is relative. It depends on who one is, what the circumstance is, what one’s experiences are, and what one is feeling in the moment.

Many do not believe that there is an absolute truth in which one is to live by. Times and circumstances change, which in turn will change what is true. Each and every person is allowed to live in the way he thinks is best for himself, as long as it does not harm or offend anyone else.

In this short letter, John is finding joy in hearing that some people are walking in the truth just as God commanded.

Since the world believes that there is no absolute truth and that everything is relative, the world finds itself in chaos and fighting. Every person is their own little god, thinking that they know the real truth.

People of all age groups are confused on who they are, what they are to do and how they are to live. The world is fighting to remove gender identity and all moral absolutes. As a result, people are confused and depressed going about harming others and self.

When Jesus walked on the earth, He said that He is truth and He is God’s living word. In His word, God gave commands as to how a person is to live in His truth and love. The person who has chosen to believe in Jesus must be willing to walk in the ways of Jesus (Truth) and God’s commands (Truth).

Any time a person stops walking in the truth, he is walking in the lies of this fallen and sinful world. He is no longer walking with God.

Every day you have a choice to make as to how you will walk through this life you have been given on this earth. The world is going to fight to get you to walk in its lies and deception, appealing to your physical desires, rather than your spirit.

Choose to study and know God’s word and have a relationship with Jesus on a daily basis. This will keep you focused upon the absolute and eternal truth and God’s word. Everything you need to live life can be found in Jesus and God’s word.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know God’s absolute truth for your life; that you will obey God’s commands to you; that God will open your eyes to the lies and deception of this world; and that you will walk in God’s truth.

2 Corinthians 13:8 Stand For The Truth

For we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth. 2 Corinthians 13:8

Truth, for many throughout the world, is something that is considered relative. It depends upon the person, his beliefs, and the circumstances as to what is truth.

With this type of thinking, many are able to do things that are against the truth. There is a common refusal to believe that there is absolute truth and that one may know the absolute truth. As a result, those who believe in an absolute truth are ridiculed and put down.

Paul stated that he cannot do anything against the truth.

Standing for the truth is something that can be very difficult and costly at times. When the majority of those around a person is against the truth, it can hurt to go against the flow and stand for the truth.

One thing that makes a believer unique is that he is following Jesus, who claimed that He IS truth. Everything that Jesus and God has stated in the bible is full and complete truth. The bible has the answer of truth for every situation a person may face in this life.

The world is trying to pitch lies that there is no God, that one can have ‘fun’ and enjoy life without the restrictions God places upon man. Any believer who chooses to believe and follow the ways of the world is choosing the do something against the Truth–Jesus.

Each and every sin that a person may choose to do, is doing something against the truth. It is not living as God had intended one to live.

Although a believer may slip up and sin once in a while, it will not be his intended purpose to do so. He will strive to live as Jesus did and not do anything against Him. He will stand for The Truth.

Going through your life you have choices to make. God has revealed His truth to you in various ways. Now it is your choice as to whether you will live in that truth or live against it.

Knowing God’s word to you, ask yourself if what you are thinking, saying or doing is going against His truth or not.

Make it a conscious choice to not do anything against Jesus. Live your entire life in honor of Jesus because of what He did for you on the cross.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know God’s truth in your life; that you will apply God’s truth to your life; and that you will never do anything against God’s truth.
