Scripture Is Truth

Scripture is truth. Jesus, praying to His Father, said, “Thy Word is truth” (John 17:17). Speaking of scripture in the entirety of Psalm 119, David writes in verse 43: “And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.” Maybe that’s what the Apostle Paul was considering when he called scripture, the word of truth in the following places: 2 Corinthians 6:7, “By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left.” Ephesians 1:13, “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,, rightly dividing the word of truth.” James also called scripture by this title: James 1:18, “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.” If you want the truth, scripture is it, and about the most important subjects in life to you. It is the truth about man’s existence and purpose, and lays out the truth about man’s eternal destiny, the standards for success, and how to live. It is the guidebook for the church that tells a church how to function and how every believer can, should, and will fit into the church. Men may not like what the Bible says. They should, but they should believe it and follow it, because it’s the truth. Even if they don’t like it, it’s going to come to pass anyway, so they should submit to it anyway, and then wait on the right feelings to come later.
