#1 The Truth in the Bible Scriptures Enhances Your Life
Truth and Bible Scriptures: Truth is Beautiful. Truth hurts.
Both are true and both enhance our lives. I know hurt and pain never seem beautiful at the time. But few of us look back over the hard things we have endured and think “too bad I didn’t learn anything.”
Conclusively, Truth is beautiful because it is from God. God is Truth. And that is enough right there. Trust the truth, because He is in it.
Indeed, Truth can hurt terribly and be some of the worst pains you will ever have to endure. The truth of death. The truth that someone(s) you loved and cherished do not love and cherish you back… The Truth of our fallen natures. Finally the Truth os our mess-ups and sin…
Truth is beautiful because it is real and authentic. Nothing phony about it. No tricks up its sleeve, no gossip behind your back with kindness to your face. Finally, you can trust Truth. Consequently, that is a beautiful thing.
“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.”1 John 1:8
Truth and Bible Scriptures line up with choosing to be who He made you.
#2 It is all in your perspective. No, it’s all about the facts and has nothing to do with perspective.
So, which is it? Both, I believe.
Truth is NOT relative, nor does Truth change, it was and is and always will be. Truth is fact. Fact is the reality. Truth and Bible Verses are the same, right? Aww, but how we interpret them? Is that Truth also?
Indeed, we all know that memories and experiences can differ. For example, let’s say we grew up in the same house and you know for a fact it was a blue house and I know for a fact it was green. One of these is true. The Truth exists. But maybe I perceive my color nuances slightly differently than you do. This, of course, is a bit of silliness to make a point. Truth is fact, but our perspectives on those facts can differ.
Does it matter? I think it does – it matters that we agree there is Truth. From that starting point, we can work towards agreement as to what the Truth is. Taking the above example – if we agree that one of us is correct, we can work out a plan or formula for determining the color of the house.
So, the beauty in Truth is if we agree it exists if we care about Truth enough to pursue it and if we are humble enough to accept that our perspective could possibly be wrong.
“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”2 Timothy 2:15
Truth and Bible Scriptures – the truth? The Word is where you find the Truth.
#3 Truth is life and life is the truth. What do Bible Scriptures Say?
Is this a reasonable word? Truth is life? Indeed, it is a dismal life that is not based on Truth, that does not seek out Truth. A life that does not pursue Truth is a sad shallow life filled with self and selfishness.
“Life is Truth. Is it? Does that make sense in any sort of way? Yes, a beating heart is Truth. Breath is Truth.We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.”1 John 4:6
Bible Scriptures and the Truth. One and the same.
#4 Words are the truth. Words cannot contain the truth.
The Word is The Truth. Words can explain and tell the truth. They can also lie and deceive us. But The Living Word is sharper than a two-edged sword and we can trust Him.
“All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.”Psalm 119:160
#5 The Bible is the True Truth.
If a blog post could sum up Truth, I don’t think Truth would be very appealing. The perfect Word is the true Truth. Trust it, know it, take everything in light of it.
And rest in this, if we could completely understand and explain Truth, His Word, and Elohim Himself, would that be a Yah you would want to serve and worship?
His ways are not our ways. Amen and HalleluYah!
“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”John 1:14
