Walk in Truth
|Walking in truth –
Christians are to walk in the Truth. The Truth is God’s Word. The Truth is the Bible. The Truth is the New Testament.
The Truth is the gospel. The Truth is Jesus and what He taught. It is His example and His words.
Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding. (Proverbs 23:23)
Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name. (Psalms 86:11)
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. (John 17:17)
For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. (John 1:17)
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples
indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:31-32)
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself;
but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. (John 16:13)
Love one another –
Jesus was the ultimate example of love. He gave His life for the world. He taught love – love for God, and love for our
fellow man. We are to love our brethren. We are to love our enemies. There is no one whom we are not to love in word
and in deed.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave
his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God
sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that
believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not
believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:14-18)
Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the
great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and
with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (Matthew 22:35-39)
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one
another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. (John 13:34-35)
But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the
other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also. Give to every man that asketh of
thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do
ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those
that love them. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even
the same. And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to
sinners, to receive as much again. But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again;
and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful
and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. (Luke 6:27-36)
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. (1 John 3:18)
Walk after His commandments –
Love means that we obey what God has said. The greatest love we can have for God, and the greatest love we can
have for our fellow man is to be seen in obedience. The greatest love is that which we can show for their eternal
(John 14:15) If ye love me, keep my commandments.
(John 14:21) He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth
me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
(John 14:23-24) Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father
will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my
sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
(1 John 5:1) Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that
begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
(1 John 5:2) By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his
(1 John 5:3) For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not
Walk in it –
Make obedience to God commandments your habit. Love God. Love the brethren. Love your fellow man, whomever it
is. Seek the Truth in all things.
Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we
are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the
Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of
his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with
him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. (Romans 6:3-6)
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God
for a sweetsmelling savour. (Ephesians 5:2)
This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no
darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus
Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is
not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:5-
|I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth,
as we have received a commandment from the Father.
And now I beseech thee, lady,
not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee,
but that which we had from the beginning,
that we love one another.
And this is love,
that we walk after his commandments.
This is the commandment,
That, as ye have heard from the beginning,
ye should walk in it.
2 John 1:4-6
