Father, I’ve let too many things distract me this morning but I am here and I am ready! Help me to focus and to listen to what You have to say.
Titus 2:8 (<<click here)
“Teach the truth…”
The New Living Translation Life Application Study Bible says, “This quality of integrity comes from careful Bible Study and listening before speaking.”
Quoting a key character in the latter days of Your life here on earth, Lord, “What is truth?” (John 18:37-38)
Lord, “truth” is surely a divisive concept. Some of us run from it! Some run to it. Many have spent lifetimes in trying to disprove and/or prove it. The reality, whether we choose to believe or not is proclaimed in Your Word as recorded in John 14:6. You yourself said, “I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life.”
So when we “teach the truth…” we are teaching of You. When we answer the question “What is truth?” the answer is You.
Lord, as I strive to “teach the truth” from the pulpit and in my daily life I truly must immerse myself in reading and studying Your Word – the Bible – and I must spend quality time with You so I may be so accustomed to Your voice that I will hear You speak before I do. Help me to perceive the world as You do so that I may impact it for You.
