The Pillar and Foundation of Truth

DEC. 8


1 Timothy 3:14-16 (NIV)
Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God's household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.

People from a royal family do not conduct themselves irrationally. They carry themselves with dignity and they conduct themselves with decorum and excellence. They know they are different and special and they think, talk and behave that way. You are a chosen royal priest, called out of darkness to show forth God's light, 1Pet.2:9 (NLT). One of our major responsibilities as God's chosen people is to reflect God's light and glorious nature to the world. When the Bible speaks about truth, it is referring to the knowledge of God (1Tim.2:4), sincerity/ integrity/ honesty (Psa.51:6), justice (Isa.59:14), the ways of God (Psa.25:5) and the person of Christ (John 8:32, John 14:6).

Truth is a major part of our armour as soldiers in God's army, Eph.6:14. Without it, every other part of the armour will hang loose. God wants us, His children, to be rooted and grounded in all that His truth represents because we are the pillar and foundation of truth. He doesn't want us tohave anything to hide and He wants us to be blameless before the world, Phil.2:12-15. He wants us to preach the truth always, 2Tim.4:2. We must love God's truth and hate all evil and falsehood, John 3:19-21, Heb.1:9. Jesus calls the Holy Spirit the Spirit of Truth (John 14:17, John 16:13) because He guides us, teaches us and He anoints and empowers us to be established in all that God's truth represents, Eph.5:9. As spiritual leaders, we must do what Apostle Paul did in our text above. We must never assume that people we lead know and are walking in the truth; we must always be sure that they know the truth by praying for them, teaching them and exemplifying God's truth before them.

PRAYER: Dear Father, empower me by Your Spirit to know You, to be sincere, to walk in Your ways and grow in the fullness of Christ.
