be discerning

When Jesus stood before Pilate, he asked him this question: What is truth? John answers that question in his first epistle and now again in John 2. The Truth resides in us, and the person of Jesus Christ said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no one comes to the Father, and no one comes to the Father but by Me.” [John 14:6] As John writes to the elect lady and her children, he extolls that he has found some of her children living according to the truth. What does living according to the truth mean? It means, as John says, they walk according to the commandments of Christ. The commandment that John is referring to is what Christ said: Love one another, and by this, you fulfill the Law and the words of the prophets and prove you are one of the elect.

As we near the end of 2023, stop and ask yourself if you are walking according to the TRUTH, the Christ. As He loved, so we are to love one another. As He obeyed the commandments of the Father, we are to do likewise.

Where are you walking and living by the TRUTH?
