Today is Wednesday, January 4, 2023, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of John 17:17.
Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
We can see how our bible verse for today defines the word “truth” as the word of God.
And then our Lord Jesus asks the Father to sanctify, that is make His disciples holy by this word.
So let us briefly see how the word of God can sanctify, or in other words, make a human being holy.
How the word of God sanctifies humans.
My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh.Proverbs 4:20.
In our scriptural text above, we can see how the preacher advises his son to pay attention to his words because they are the keys to long life.
Paying attention here does not only imply listening but also being able to practice the instructions given by the father as the bible says in James 1;22.
“But be doers of the word and only hearers, deceiving yourself.
So, therefore, when the son is able to practice the words of the father, he will not do the things the father forbids, and in so doing he will be sanctified.
So in conclusion, being able to hear and do God’s words is what will make you holy or righteous as the last scripture below concludes.
He who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.1 John 3:7.
