God’s Truth is Your Foundation for Life*

Joy overflows when Jesus is the center of your life. This joy is observable, and is designed to be “lived in” and “lived out” every day of your life.

Knowing the fullness of God’s truth begins by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.

Ephesians 1:13, And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit.

John 3:16, For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 14:6, Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 18:37, “You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

God’s truth is available through prayer, so ask for His help.

Psalm 25:5, guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.

Psalm 86:11, Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.

God’s truth is revealed through His Word, so be diligent to study and apply Scripture to your life.

2 Timothy 2:15, Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

2 Timothy 3:16-17, All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

God’s truth is demonstrated by Christ’s example, so learn how He dealt with various aspects of life and follow Him.

Ephesians 4:21, Surely you heard of him (Christ) and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus.

Colossians 2:3, in whom (Christ) are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Colossians 2:6-7, So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

1 John 2:6, Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.

1 Peter 2:21, To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.

God’s truth is supernaturally revealed to you by the Holy Spirit, so trust Him, not yourself.

John 16:13-15, But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me (Jesus) by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.

God’s truth is to be accurately presented by you to others in word and deed, so demonstrate truth in daily life and relationships.

2 Corinthians 4:2, Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

God’s truth is foundational for the spiritual growth of each person in the Body of Christ, so live out His truth in relational ministry with fellow believers.

Ephesians 4:15, Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

1 John 3:18, Dear children, let us not love with words of tongue but with actions and in truth.
