TOPIC – Stand Firm On God’s Truth
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 45-46; 1 Thessalonians 3
FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 18:37-38
MEMORY VERSE: “That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.” – Isaiah 65:16
When Jesus was standing trial before the Pilate, He said, among other things that He should bear witness unto the truth and that everyone that is of the truth heareth His voice. Pilate replied “What is the truth?” (John 18:37-38). A careful study of the Bible reveals that there are ten great truths contained in the scripture. The first truth is contained in Isaiah 65:16, which says “He who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.”
The Good News Bible expressly states, “It is dangerous when you are concerned with what others think of you” (Proverbs 29:25). Therefore, beloved, always stand on and act on God’s word because the word is God Himself (John 1:1). As the word of God is a reality, truth which is not disputable, so the point that God is the truth is not disputable.
It is rather difficult to take a stand for God’s truth when we are mainly concerned with what people think about us. It is also obvious that as soon as one worries about what other people think, we are letting them to control us. By trying to figure out what people want from us rather than what God created us for, we may be tempted to act contrary to what God demands from us, thereby sinning against Him. To succeed in life entails standing firm on the Lord, the truth and life.
Romans 6:14 says, “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.” Avoid indulging in or gratifying occasional sin and say it is just in a while for selfish gain, you will just give the devil room to rob you of your dominion over sin and the joy of the Lord. Beloved, today stand for the truth to avoid sin. Do it according to the word of the Lord, no matter the consequences.
