There is a song called “Words” by Hawk Nelson that plays frequently on the radio right now. The words in the chorus are:
Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
If I had a theme song for my blog, or even my life for that matter, I think this might be it!
There is a phrase in carpentry called “true up” which means to make something even, symmetrical, or to bring it into alignment.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6)
He has given us the Spirit of truth, who promises to guide us in all truth (John 16:13)
His word is truth! (John 17:17)
Not only does Jesus set the example, He helps us “true up” to Him through the Word and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit! What a marvelous gift! My goal in life is to be aligned with Christ, and my prayer is that my life (words and actions) will point others toward the truth.
For His lovingkindness is great toward us,
And the truth of the Lord is everlasting.
Praise the Lord! (Psalm 117:2)
