In keeping with our theme of dealing with the man (or woman) in the mirror, we are going to continue discussing the building of important biblical character traits in your life. Today, we will continue looking at the quality of Truthfulness from “The Power for True Success” by the Institute in Basic Life Principles.
Let’s consider the question, What Does Truth Do?
There is power in truth, because it is the very essence of God and the means by which He carries out His work in the world.
1. Truth brings us into Christ. James 1:18 says, “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.”
2. Truth brings us to the light. John 3:21 says, “But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”
3. Truth purifies our souls. 1 Peter 1:22 says, “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently.”
