TEXT: PROVERBS 23:23
23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
KEY VERSE: 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.
Now our understanding, to buy, means exchange of something with money. But in this case, it is not with money. The Bible puts it this way; we bought the truth because it costs us to get at it. It is costly to get the truth.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
The pearls of great price is Jesus. He is the truth as revealed in our key verse. You are selling all to buy Him. When you have bought this truth, you will know the value of life. The truth is also the doctrine of holiness. To buy holiness, you have to sacrifice; prestige, friendship, personal honor and glory, rather belong to a class business of favor in your job. You will have to give up some business like plaiting of hair with attachment or worldly style, selling of alcohol, sewing evil styles.
To get the truth, you may belong to a big church but because of truth, you join a small church where truth is taught. You use your money to do restitution, facing shame. Associating now with the church that practices truth, you give up something to arrive at that. It costs you to arrive at it so, do not sell it. Do not allow the truth to slip out of your hands. Joash lost this life of truth after the death of Jehoiada who brought him up in righteousness.
2 Chronicles 24:2, 17
And Joash did that which was right in the sight of the Lord all the days of Jehoiada the priest. Now after the death of Jehoiada came the princes of Judah, and made obeisance to the king. Then the king hearkened unto them.
These people convinced the heart of Joash to go with other nations in serving idols and turned his heart from God. Be careful not to let anyone turn your heart away from the truth you have been taught in Holiness Revival Movement. Seek the truth at all time.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.
SONG OF THE DAY: Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, whosoever cometh to Him shall never die....
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: 1 Chronicles 23-25; John 11:1-17
