A wonderful passage of scripture is found in John chapter 17; it contains a prayer from the mouth of Jesus for His followers. One of His requests in prayer to the Father is found in verse 17:
“Sanctify them in Your truth. Your word is truth.”
The writer of Psalm 119 wrote the longest chapter in all of the Bible detailing over and over the wonders of God’s Word. These two sections lay some groundwork for what Jesus prayed for us, asking that we be sanctified in the truth:
28 My soul is weary with sorrow: strengthen me according to Your word. 29 Keep me from the way of deceit. Grant me your law graciously! 30 I have chosen the way of truth. I have set your ordinances before me. 31 I cling to your statutes, Yehovah. Don’t let me be disappointed. 32 I run in the path of Your commandments, for You have set my heart free.
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness. Your law is truth.
May we all be seekers of truth (because His Word is truth) & live in obedience like Jesus our Savior did! He’s certainly worthy of our full devotion and our full attention to walking in His ways!
