John 17:17-18 – From Jesus Lips to our Ears – “Sanctifie them through thy trueth: thy word is trueth. As thou hast sent mee into the world: euen so have I also sent them into the world.”
I don’t really think I can add anything to these words that Jesus spoke and prayed on our behalf. If we cannot come to agreement on this truth of God’s word then what is it that we can agree upon!
God promises in Jeremiah 29:13, “And ye shall seeke me, and finde me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” Our heart is key to finding God’s truth, and God’s truth is in His written Word, plain and simple. God’s Word is not hard to understand only believing God’s Word as truth can tangle us up!
My pastor had a saying (not the only one I ever heard say this), “if God said it I believe it; God says what He means and means what He says”, that simple for him and has always been that simple for me. Hearing the Word believing it to be true creates faith in our heart, without believing there is no faith. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrew 11:1”
May these words of Jesus comfort us and sustain us as we read and study God’s Word and apply it to our life.
