The Practice of Truth

3 John 1:3 For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth.

Having truth is great, vital and important but how we live out that truth is where the fruit of that truth in our lives is evident. It’s not just that we have truth; the power of truth to set us free comes through practicing and walking in that truth.

So the question of the day is this: How is Scripture informing your attitudes, actions and choices today? Not just in your head, how you THINK about truth but more importantly in your actions, how you ACT in the truth.

As women, generally speaking, we are prone to follow our emotions. Emotions can be very convincing BUT they have NO power to MAKE you do anything! Let me say that again. Your emotions have NO POWER TO MAKE YOU DO ANYTHING. Rather you make a choice to act in response to your emotions or to act in spite of your emotions. The power is NOT in the emotions or the feelings. The power is in the choice and the action.

How is Scripture informing your attitudes, actions and choices today?
