Last week, we have learned about the inerrancy and infallibility of God’s Word through the messages preached on the fourth week of the Wordview series. This simply means that the Word of God is not only true, but is the standard of truth. Throughout Scripture, many passages declared this characteristic of God’s Word:
Your righteousness is righteous forever, and your law is true. (Psalm 119:142)
But you are near, O Lord, and all your commandments are true. (Psalm 119:151)
The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever. (Psalm 119:160)
Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. (John 17:17)
In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:13-14)
Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. (James 1:18)
It is one thing to know that the Word of God is truth, and another thing to live it out in life as the final and ultimate standard of truth. Although this is a hard pill to swallow, we can embrace the Word of God as truth knowing that the Author is reliable and trustworthy. We can believe and depend on God’s Word because of His character. In a world bombarded with lies, we can take comfort and have security in the truth of God’s Word.
Is there a part of your life that hasn’t been surrendered to the truth of God’s Word? Pray that the Lord will teach you to embrace His truth and delight in it this week.
