Today is Saturday, 19 of March in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of Genesis 2:7.
Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.John 17:17.
Our bible verse for the day 19 March 2022 gives a simple definition of the word “truth”.
It says that the word of God is truth.
Now Jesus calls on God to sanctify His disciples with His Words which is truth.
And for that reason, let’s quickly get to see how God sanctifie human beings by the word.
How God sanctifies human beings with the truth.
While Jesus was on earth His greatest enemies were His own people, that is the Jews.
But at one time while He was delivering a sermon, he realized that some Jews had believe in Him, and for that reason He told them that they shall know the truth and the truth will make them free. John 8:32.
Now how does the truth make a human being free?
How the truth will make you free.
From the definition of truth that we see above, we understand that the Word of God is the truth.
Which means we can use the word in place of truth, or rather interchangeably.
The word of God can be seen as a manual which carries instructions on how human beings should live on earth according to the text below.
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,Proverbs 4:20.
And health to all their flesh.
When we think of freedom, we can logically think about those who are locked away because of one crime or other they committed.
And when you go to the bible, you will realize that the word of God had instructed that people should not do such a thing.
But because that person did not know this word of God, or even if he did failed to practice it; he committed the crime that landed him in jail.
In conclusion, we can see that Jesus was praying God to help His disciples always see the need of understanding and putting His words to practice.
So that in so doing, they can remain holy.
And for that reason, we also need to apply this teaching in our bible verse of the day March 19 2022, to remain holy as the disciples of Jesus.
