"I was born and came into the world to tesitfy to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true." ~ John 18:37 (NLT)
Nearly everyone says they want to know the truth. Most also say they live according to the truths they know. But most people don't want to know the truth or live by it. They simply want to embrace values that justify their sinful behaviour. On the other hand, everyone who really does love the truth will recognize that what I said is true. Still, many people embrace My words in their minds but not in their hearts. They view My words as ideals to be respected, but they don't commit themselves to following My teachings and commands. Child, that is not you. I know you want to know My truth, not just to consider it but to do it! I know you want My truth to dwell in your heart and produce the fruit that your heavenly desires - alife that reflects His righteousness, loving-kindness, mercy, forgiveness, and justice. I know you want to follow Me by discovering and doing what I say. And you want to please and glorify the Father with your faith. You know that I am the truth, and in knowing Me, the truth will dwell in your heart.
"But when He, the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth." ~ John 16:13 (NASB)
