LIVING BY THE TRUTH

Psa 119:29-30
29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously. 30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.
(KJV)

The Lord Jesus Christ had an interesting conversation with Pilate just before He was crucified; He told Pilate 'Everyone that is of truth hears my voice'. Pilate replied with a question 'what is truth?' and without waiting to hear from Jesus he went out. (See John 18:37-38).
Pilate lost the opportunity to know the most important secret in life; living life by the truth. There is only one way to live life; by the truth. Otherwise, one is living a lie. For how high should one climb a wall before he finds out if his ladder is on the right wall?

Truth is not relative as philosophers want us to believe. Truth is found in Christ and in His words.
Living by the truth is to be saved by Christ. The Lord Jesus made a clear statement when He said in John 14:6  'I am the way, the truth, and the life'. Paul the apostle said the church of God is the 'ground and the pillar of truth'. (1 Tim 3:15).

Living by the truth is also living by the words of Christ. Life outside the commandments of God is a false life. Such a person is living in bondage according to the words of Christ in John 8:32. In another illustration, the Lord likened whoever lives by His words to the man who builds his house upon a rock.

Are you living the life or you are living a lie? Are you are living life as prescribed by the Life-giver?

Go into today with the hunger for truth. Search the word of God and live by them. Buy the truth and sell it not.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, lead me to the truth of Your words. Let me not live a lie. Lead me through the path of life. Amen.
