Are You a Channel of Truth?

“Buy the truth, and do not sell it, also wisdom and instruction and understanding.”

Proverbs 23:23


Ponder This

As a Bible student, you need to measure and test everything you read by the Word of God. You have a grid that everything must pass through. You have a radar. All truth intersects, and one of the tests of any good book is this: When you put that book down, do you begin to think? All genuine truth intersects because all real truth is of God. God did not make you to be a reservoir of facts—He meant for you to be a channel of truth. If you’re growing in knowledge but not growing in grace, you’re going to be dangerous. I’ve met those people. They can split a theological hair into nine separate sections, but they’re not growing in the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Some people just want to study methods. You will never get excited about methods unless you learn the truth behind the method. Why do you do this? Are you experiencing freedom? Real truth, as Jesus says, sets you free. In your study, ask yourself these questions: Am I learning humility? Am I sharing grace with others in the process? Am I being set free?

  • What is the difference between living as a reservoir of facts and as a channel of truth?
  • What truth have you learned recently? How has it impacted you?
