It is amazing how God has many characteristics and, even more incredible, how we discover more of them as we seek Him through prayer and the Bible. Having this in mind my boyfriend and I decided to start a serie of devotionals (both individually and together) to study about a specific characteristic of our God.
The first one on the list is: GOD IS TRUTH.
We found many references in the Bible about be truthful and how God’s word is the truth. And, from my humble knowledge and what I learned from my devotionals I wanted to share this little space with you!
First of all, God is the one truth God! As we found along the Bible and even more specific in the book of Jeremiah:
But the Lord is the true God;
he is the living God, the eternal King.
Jeremiah 10:10 (NIV)
The mindblown comes up when the only truth God, became a person. Christ came to Earth to safe us from our sins and taking us to the path the Lord had made for us and that we had disregarded.
In the book of John, specially in verses 1:14 & 1:17 we can see how the truth of God came to us through Jesus. And His truth was given to us with grace and eternal life, instead of punishment or condemnation!
As we keep reading the Gospel of John, we can read an amazing statement:
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
John 8:32 (NIV)
We know Jesus said he was the way, the truth and the life. He said so because he was in essence a true God made human, and brought us God’s truth.
If we put everything on perspective until now, we can see how the truth (God himself & His word) make us free once we accept it’s gift.
SOOO, in simple words:
“God is the true God, full of truth, that is himself, and that it give us that truth which made us truly free”
I am still surprised of how He reveals himself to us and how privileged we are to know Him (And understand His word!).
