Good Monay Morning to this week 3 of 2021
I’m following in the pattern, one verse to one book of scripture. Today to 3. John:
I greatly rejoiced when some of the brethren arrived and testified to the truth of your life, as indeed you do follow the truth. (3 John 1:3)
Speaking of being consistent in his actions:
He showed the truth in his life, what impressed John was not that he knew the truth, but that he followed the truth. He lived it. He had a consistent life.
Truth’ involves both the quality of “faithfulness, fidelity, loyalty, sincerity, veracity”, and that of “agreement with fact or reality”.
Truth is the property of being in accord with fact or reality. In everyday language, truth is typically ascribed to things that aim to represent reality or otherwise correspond to it, such as beliefs, propositions, and declarative sentences.
Merriam Webster defines truth as :
: the truth
: the real facts about something
: the things that are true
: the quality or state of being true
: a statement or idea that is true or accepted as truth. In many Judeo-Christian churches the definition of truth is based upon statements made by new testament authors and the messiah. Truth, reality; the unveiled reality lying at the basis of and agreeing with an appearance; the manifested, the veritable essence of matter. The Hebrew thought and the culture is the driving force behind all of the translations. The word translates as truth, true, truly, right, faithfully, assured, assuredly , established, faithful, sure, verity, firmness, faithfulness, sureness, reliability, stability and continuance.
While that gives us a little more revelation, it is still not concrete, actually looking deeper we find out that truth is not antiquated or fulfilled.
Truth was, is, and is to come! This is wording we are very familiar with:
Who is, who was and who is and who is coming!
A great concept to tackle the concept of truth in our daily lives!
Wishing a blessed week, full of truth!
