“…we should live up to whatever truth we have attained.” Philippians 3:16 HCSB
As I read this today, I couldn’t help but ask myself, “Am I living up to…am I walking in the truth that I have received?”
I know that Jesus has redeemed me. I know that He says that I can do ALL things through Him. I know that He says I am MORE than a conqueror. I know He says I can do greater things than He did while He walked this earth in human form.
So! I have to look at my life and judge as to whether my life is an example of the truth I believe. When people see me, do they see what I believe displayed in my actions? Do they hear what I believe in my words? Am I truly living up to the truth I believe…or am I living below that truth?
Ahhh Lord! Help me to live up to Your truth! Faith by itself, if not accompanied by action, is dead. (James 2:17). I desire to LIVE Your truth – not just speak it – not just believe it – but to ACT upon it!! May my life be raised up to meet Your truth! Amen!
