For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, and I have walked in Your truth. (Ps 26:3, emphasis added)
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. (3 Joh 1:4, emphasis added)
The entirety of Your word is truth, and every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever. (Ps 119:160)
Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. (Joh 17:17)
How do we “walk in God’s truth”?
Let’s consider the Scripture verses shown above, and ponder the fact that Jesus told us in John 14:6 that He is the Truth. Elsewhere, the Scriptures inform us that Jesus is the Word made flesh. (Joh 1:14) The Bible also states in John 17:17 that God’s Word is truth.
After reflecting upon these points, we can understand that “walking in the truth” means:
- living our lives in obedience to God’s Word;
- making our decisions in agreement with the values of the Scriptures; and
- living according to the wisdom of the Bible.
- It suggests that we would highly value God’s Word, and that we would study it diligently. (2 Tim 2:15)
There are many passages of Scripture that remind us that when we seek and serve the Lord, He showers us with His protection, His favor, and His blessings. Have a blessed day.
