HE IS - I AM :
HE IS TRUTH. I AM SURE.
The Son of God has come and given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ.
1 John 5:20
Aug 15 He is TRUTH- I am SURE. The Wonder of it all.
live each day with Holy awe and reverence throughout your time on earth.
1 Peter 1:17 TPT
Bible Story: Mary Luke 8:1-3 -The Truth delivers
He is Truth. I am sure. I say, “Love Jesus. Live Life”.
With Jesus in our lives it seems only natural to “live each day with Holy awe and reverence throughout [our] time on earth.” (1 Peter 1:17 TPT). The Psalmist puts it this way, “A day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere”.
Enjoy 1 Peter 1:8 when he declares, “You love him even though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy.”
“Live each day with Holy awe and reverence”… “rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy” - God loves you so much, Jesus becomes a daily irresistible obsession. This obsession is my resting place. “Seek first the Kingdom of God”, yes and amen. I shared it last week, I will share it again this week:
The most important thing with the Gospel is not to scold and rebuke, what is most important with the Gospel is to get men to follow it. Hence it says, ‘Seek first’. Thereby it stops the mouth, so to speak, of all man’s objections, brings him to silence, and gets him actually to begin with this seeking; and then this seeking so satisfies man that it becomes true that he seeks solely and only God’s kingdom. P. 332
Love Jesus. Live Life. This is Kingdom. This is a life of miracles. This is who I am in Christ! This is how my world and the world around me gets transformed. I know The Truth and The True has set me free. Jesus is Truth. I am sure. Free to "live each day with Holy awe and reverence!” Free to live in Him! Yes and Amen!
Below are Jesus’ “I tell you the truth” statements from The Gospel of Luke:
But I tell you the truth, no prophet is accepted in his own hometown.
I tell you the truth, some standing here right now will not die before they see the Kingdom of God.”
“I tell you the truth, everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, the Son of Man will also acknowledge in the presence of God’s angels.
The servants who are ready and waiting for his return will be rewarded. I tell you the truth, he himself will seat them, put on an apron, and serve them as they sit and eat!
I tell you the truth, the master will put that servant in charge of all he owns.
I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”
“I tell you the truth,” Jesus said, “this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them.
I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things have taken place
