Reference:  Romans 12:2

Topic:         “In Search of Spiritual Truths”

In most situations the truth has to be revealed or discovered.  In the absence of substantial evidence to support an argument, the burden of proof must be presented.  As we grow in our knowledge of the scripture we must learn to apply the truth to our lives. Applying the word will give every believer the power to stand. (Read – II Peter 3:13-18)

Grow - auzano (owx-an'-o); to grow ("wax"), i.e. enlarge

The lesson aim is to motivate the believer to seek the truth of God.  More importantly, we, the believer, must understand the impact the truth will have on our lives. The truth works as a support in the battle for the mind.  (Ephesians 6:14 – “Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth” - KJV)

However, as it relates to Christ the truth has to be revealed.  (Read: Matthew 16:17) Part of the role of Jesus and the Holy Spirit in the lives of the believer is to represent, reveal and recall the truth. (Read: John 14:6; 16:13)

*    John 14:6 – “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”. KJV
*    John 16:13 – “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come”. KJV

There is no greater liberator than the truth.  The truth has the power to set the captive free.

*    John 8:32 – “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”. KJV
