Proverbs 23:23 Buy the truth, and do not sell it, also wisdom and instruction and understanding.
Truth, what is it? We can find it’s definition in scripture. John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Jesus, God in the flesh is “TRUTH.” God and His word is One. John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we have contemplated his glory, a glory as of an only-begotten with a father), full of grace and truth.
Truth” is described as wisdom, discipline and understanding which originated and is obtained from God who freely gives to all who search for it.
TRUTH MUST NOT be compromise in any way because it is God’s Word and regardless of who likes it or not, it must be our speech and our standard of living as God’s people.
God’s truth must become our truth. Yes, we must make it our own possession and hold tight to it daily.
Truth MUST not only be approached and accepted by us daily but is must be lived out in our lives though obedience to it.
As the people of God we must make the sacrifice for truth regardless of the cost. Yes, it may cost us our relationship with others or loss of many other things but we MUST remember that God’s “TRUTH” is not for sale if you claim to be a child of God.
We must daily search out God’s TRUTH in His Word, trust it and obey it.
Truth is sold when we choose not to communicate and operate in it and when we choose to uphold unrighteousness, selfishness and inconsistency in our faith walk with God.
TRUTH comes with a cost. We MUST BUY it because it will not be ours unless we buy it with ourselves at the altar of God’s TRUTH as we offer up our self will, self sufficiency attitudes, our own understanding and our own wisdom as a sacrifice for it.
Once we have purchased “TRUTH” through our letting go of self sufficiency and grabbing ahold of God’s dependency, TRUTH is freely given to us through the Word of God and direction of His Holy Spirit.
Once we receive God’s TRUTH we must fix our thoughts upon His TRUTH, exercise our faith in and through it and obey it.
Truth is found in God alone. The Word of God is the TRUTH because God is the author of it.
BUY THE TRUTH AND DO NOT SELL IT!
