THE TRUTH DWELLS IN US

For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever (2 John 1:2).

John discovered Jesus in a way that most others never did. He saw something about the Word of God that was unique. He alone shares with us in his gospel writing, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). 

John understood it because he was there when Jesus taught them and said, “…I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). He heard Jesus say, “I am the truth.” And so, when Jesus, in His prayer to the Father, said, “…thy word is truth” (John 17:17), John was able to put it together: The Word is Truth, and the Truth became flesh.

Jesus was more than a man, more than a prophet, and more than a Rabbi; He was God’s Truth—God in the flesh. What is truth? Truth is reality—absolute reality. Everything else fades away, but the Truth of God dwells in us, and shall be with us forever (2 John 1:2).

Once this reality settles in your heart, you’ll realize there’s nothing you can’t have and nothing you can’t do, because the Truth dwells in you, and this Truth—the Word of Truth—created everything, including you: “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures” (James 1:18). Glory to God! 

Confession/Prayer

Dear Father, I thank you for your Word. Your Word is Truth, and I walk in truth, because I’m one with the Truth. Your Word confirms my prosperity, divine health, victory, dominion and glorious life in Christ. I make progress from glory to glory as I walk in your truth, established in righteousness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
