The price of truth 8-11-17

TRUTH-is not only speech (not lying, telling what we know) but it is an action. A way of living. Jesus' death on the cross was His way of demonstrating the truth. Freedom is in the truth (who is Jesus) not doctrine. That is how we are set free. So we see truth is more than what we say we believe it is action. We truth our brethren by loving them. So truth is in how we walk and how we act- It is in how we love.

John 8:40 And yet here you are trying to kill me, a man who has spoken to you the truth he got straight from God! Abraham never did that sort of thing.


42 "If God was your father," said Jesus, "you would love me, for I came from God and arrived here. I didn't come on my own. He sent me.

43 Why can't you understand one word I say? Here's why: You can't handle it.

44 You're from your father, the Devil, and all you want to do is please him. He was a killer from the very start. He couldn't stand the truth because there wasn't a shred of truth in him. When the Liar speaks, he makes it up out of his lying nature and fills the world with lies.

45 I arrive on the scene, tell you the plain truth, and you refuse to have a thing to do with me.

46 Can any one of you convict me of a single misleading word, a single sinful act? But if I'm telling the truth, why don't you believe me?

47 Anyone on God's side listens to God's words. This is why you're not listening because you're not on God's side."  MSG

1 John 1:6  If we claim that we experience a shared life with him and continue to stumble around in the dark, we're obviously lying through our teeth we're not living what we claim.

7 But if we walk in the light, God himself being the light, we also experience a shared life with one another, as the sacrificed blood of Jesus, God's Son, purges all our sin. MSG

John 18:37 Pilate said to Him, Then You are a King? Jesus answered, You say it! [You speak correctly!] For I am a King. [Certainly I am a King!] This is why I was born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the Truth. Everyone who is of the Truth [who is a friend of the Truth, who belongs to the Truth] hears and listens to My voice.

38 Pilate said to Him, What is Truth? On saying this he went out to the Jews again and told them, I find no fault in Him.  AMP


John 18:37 Then Pilate said, "So, are you a king or not?" Jesus answered, "You tell me. Because I am King, I was born and entered the world so that I could witness to the truth. Everyone who cares for truth, who has any feeling for the truth, recognizes my voice."

John 4:23 But the time is coming it has, in fact, come when what you're called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter.

That's the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship.

24 God is sheer being itself Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration."  MSG

Eph 4:15 Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly]. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).   AMP

INSIDE OUT Eph 4:17 And so I insist and God backs me up on this that there be no going along with the crowd, the empty-headed, mindless crowd.

18 They've refused for so long to deal with God that they've lost touch not only with God but with reality itself.

19 They can't think straight anymore. Feeling no pain, they let themselves go in sexual obsession, addicted to every sort of perversion.

20 But that's no life for you. You learned Christ!

21 My assumption is that you have paid careful attention to him, been well instructed in the truth precisely as we have it in Jesus.

22 Since, then, we do not have the excuse of ignorance, everything and I do mean everything connected with that old way of life has to go. It's rotten through and through. Get rid of it! And then take on an entirely new way of life a God-fashioned life,

23 a life renewed from the inside

24 and working itself into your conduct as God accurately reproduces his character in you.

25 What this adds up to, then, is this: no more lies, no more pretense. Tell your neighbor the truth. In Christ's body we're all connected to each other, after all. When you lie to others, you end up lying to yourself.  MSG

For the substance (essence) of the truth revealed by Jesus is the spirit of all prophecy [the vital breath, the inspiration of all inspired preaching and interpretation of the divine will and purpose, including both mine and yours].  AMP

John 17:17 Make them holy consecrated with the truth; Your word is consecrating truth.

18 In the same way that you gave me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world.
