God's Simple Pattern For Your Growth

Friday, April 29, 2011 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

John 17:17, "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

The Lord Jesus prayed a powerful prayer for you and me. Verse 17 is one part of what we often Christ's "high priestly prayer" that reveals God's pattern for our growth. There are three key terms:

1. "Sanctify" essentially means, "set apart for special (or holy) use."
2. "Truth" is "reality as God defines it."
3. "Word" is God's will, plan, purposes as well as the person of Jesus Christ.

It's a simple and powerful prescription:

Being set part for divine purpose and being used mightily by God results from living in God's reality (His ways) as imparted to us by the Word of God (The Bible) and relationship with Jesus Christ (the living Word).

So, go get into the Word today!
