Abide In The TRUTH of HIs WORD. It Leads To LIFE.


In my last post, I talked about abiding.  Listen to this verse.

“If you abide in my WORD, you are truly my disciples.  And you will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free,”  John 8:31-32

If you want to abide in HIM, you must abide in the WORD.  Why?

“And the WORD became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory.”  John 1:14

Jesus is the WORD, and when we abide in the WORD, we abide in HIM.

Let me say that another way: One way to abide in HIM is to read the WORD.  Why?  Because the word is truth is it not?  Look back at John 8:31-32.   It says if you abide in the WORD, you will know the TRUTH.

The truth.  Haven’t I heard that somewhere before?  Yes, yes I have.  Not only is the WORD truth – so is HE – because HE is the WORD.  What does Jesus say?

“I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life.”  John 14:6

If you abide in the WORD (Jesus) you will know the TRUTH (Jesus) and the TRUTH (Jesus) will set you free.

Wow.  There are so many diamonds in there I just have to shout, “Hallelujah!”

One way to abide in Him is to abide, search, read, study, and love, the WORD, because the WORD is HIM and the WORD is TRUTH and if we seek to walk His will for our lives, we want the truth, do we not?

We need the WORD to guide us.  What does scripture say?

“The Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”  Psalm 119:105

Why?  Because He is the WORD, and He is our LIGHT.

“I am the LIGHT of the world.  Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but he will have the LIGHT of life.”  John 8:12

The flip side to that verse is that if we do not follow Him, we will be walking in darkness because we will have no light to guide us.  Only with the light (the WORD) can we even hope of finding our way.

The Way.  Hum.  Now, haven’t I heard that before too?  Yes, yes I have.

“I am the WAY, the truth, and the life.”  John 14:6

The light (JESUS, the WORD), leads you down the only WAY you should go because His WORD, and the TRUTH of His word, gives you LIGHT to follow.

Look back at John 8:12.  Jesus says He is the light of the world, and His light will guide the way to LIFE.  Now listen to this scripture.

“In Him was LIFE, and the LIFE was the LIGHT of men.  The LIGHT shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it.”  John 4-5  

The LIGHT (Jesus) gives us LIFE.

“I am the way, the truth, and the LIFE.”  John 14:6

Abide in the WORD today – it leads you down the WAY with its LIGHT, guides you to the  TRUTH, and into the LIFE.

Let me say that another way.  Abide in JESUS because HE can lead you down the WAY with His LIGHT and guides you to the TRUTH, and into the LIFE.

“If you abide in my WORD, you are truly my disciples.  And you will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free,”  John 8:31-32

You can’t tell me God isn’t cool.  You can’t tell me God’s WORD isn’t cool.  And oh, did I mention, that means JESUS is cool.

SHINE HIS LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS.
