We Can Trust God's Word
“Make them pure and holy by teaching them Your words of truth” (John 17:17).
Most of us know at least one person we consider very honest. When we ask that person for his opinion, he tells us what he really thinks. If we ask him to take care of something important for us, he will be open about whether or not he can do it.
That is even more true of our holy God. We can trust Him and His Word - completely and implicitly. It would violate God's truthfulness, holiness, omniscience and love if His Word could not be trusted.
During the first centuries of the Church, false teachers tried to argue that the Bible was not completely truthful. Paul quickly defended the Bible. He proclaimed that all Scripture is God's truth! (See: 2 Timothy 3:16). That assurance is what gave Paul such incredible confidence as he traveled about the Roman Empire proclaiming the Good News of Jesus' death and resurrection. His life of service through incredible pressures and persecutions is proof that God's Truth has power to sustain us.
We can absolutely trust God and His Word - to the last period on the last page. After more than fifty years of studying the Bible, I am convinced beyond any shadow of doubt that it is the holy, inspired, and inerrant Word of God. During these years, I have anchored my life of service to Jesus on a God who is absolutely truthful and stands behind His Word.
God has never failed me nor misled me. God and His Word, the Bible, is absolute truth.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Read the following three Bible passages. What do they tell you about God's truthfulness? How does that differ from what society says about truth? Meditate on what God is telling you. Whose truth will you chose to embrace today - man's or God's?
Because God is absolute truth,
I will believe what He says and live accordingly.
