Being a Truth Seeker

We are not going to pick on anyone today, but we have all seen the type: the “drama” queens, those who use their hurts, pasts, and somehow their futures for their advantage. They turn on the tears for sympathy, or we see the veins popping out in anger or manipulation is used to get what they want. You get my point. We have all seen it.

Maybe it’s you?

Some folks use “feelings” to drive them towards what they want their truth to be.

Sadly, but helpful to know, our human nature hasn’t changed much — we be wise to take note!

Paul described such a manner in 2 Timothy 3 about some women who were weighed down by such internal struggles that betrayed their true self. “For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth” (3:6-7). Notice the last part of that verse…”always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth” these women were hearers of the Word but not doers of the Word. The Word went “in one ear and out the other ear”–may that not be said of us, men or women! In Jude 1:4 it says, “For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.” Oh this verse makes me so sad!

Can I ask you a question?

  • Do you accept the whole Truth of the Gospel, or just what fits into your emotional mold of convenience?

I know, this is a oucher of a question, but a vital one to realize what we are accepting.

If we are not accepting the whole Truth of the Gospel, we have dethroned God and crowned ourself, a god.

If Scripture is not your definitive authority then you claim self to be. We cannot have two Masters on the throne (Matthew 6:24).

We must be God-Truth seekers at all time, with Scripture as our guide. Scripture and nothing else should be our lifelong compass throughout this life! In the end we need to remember to stay Christ-focused and God-centered.

Jesus is the Way, The Truth, and The Life.

Dig Deep

Rightly Dividing the Word

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth” Paul wrote Timothy a second letter in chapter two verse fifteen; such powerful verses. Paul urged Timothy to communicate the Word of God without shame but warned him to act with all accuracy, handling with care as a mouthpiece of God to all who hear. What a God we serve! Just as Timothy had this calling, as do we! Oh, I get so excited yet quickly humbled before Him! We have a God-purpose to fulfill, my friends!

Handling God’s Word is no small task; we are to be accurate: meaning, not adding nor taking away from what God hath said or not said (Revelation 22:18-19 & Matthew 5:18) as we share, teach, and communicate the Word of God to others.

Friends, rightly dividing the Word of Truth is something we learn to do, it’s not a given once we are saved.

  • We learn to study the Word by being in the Word!
  • You must decide to take a proactive role in your walk with Christ!

Living, proclaiming a ‘Top-Down Theology’ (which means, God is the Head, I am not. God is the author that hath spoken, not me.) even to those little ones running around under toe while you wash those dishes and fold that pile of laundry, is speaking the oracle’s of God.

We must learn to interrupt the Bible ➡BIBLICALLY!! Be careful who and where you are gathering your information from. If it is not grounded in the Bible, think twice! Misinterpreting the Word can lead us to sharing false teaching or doctrines that will displease our Lord and mislead others.

The Word of God put into practice in the life of a believer is a power source the Holy Spirit can use as a tool for the Father as He reveals to us through the Word His will, but it requires wisdom, obedience, willingness, and careful study. But it is worth every second! The Holy Spirit guides us into all truth…God’s Truth!

  • Enjoy your study of His Word!!!!!
  • Study it correctly so you can share the Word correctly.
  • When those who listen, may they hear the TRUTH of the Word of God, not just a verse pulled out of context or misinterpreted doctrine because we were too lazy, selfish, or proud to rightly divide the Word of Truth. May we honor God!
  • Have fun!
  • Dig deep in Christ alone!
  • Enjoy your Savior!
