"Walking in Truth"
“I have no greater joy than to hear that
children walk in truth.” III
heart is overjoyed to see His little
children living and abiding in the
truth. We ought to be overjoyed to
bring such joy to the heart of our
Father, and all that is needed is a
consistent walk in truth. So how does a
child of God, who wants to
please his Heavenly Father, accomplish
that goal? God gave us the
answer in the statement that “I have no
greater joy than to hear that
my children walk in truth.” What a
loving Father to give His children a
way to please Him!
The word walk
means to live and act or behave; to
pursue a particular course of life.
To walk in truth simply means to live
and act the truth, and to make it
the course of our life. If God’s
children make the truth to be a way of
life, then they bring the greatest joy
to the heart of their Father.
Where then do we
truth? In this day and time the truth
seems hard to come by. People are
very comfortable with lying, and it
seems that promises are made to be
broken. Our hearts themselves are
deceitful, and the world is full of
deceivers and the ones being deceived.
Many lives today are following
after empty dreams. Television, movies,
music and politicians all seem
to be party to the big lie being told.
Certainly it is true to say
today, “Truth is fallen in the
street.” (Isa. 59:14)
Jesus said, “I am
the way, the
truth, and the life.” (John 14:6) Jesus
is the very Person of truth. He
said of His Word, “Thy word is truth”
(John 17:17). Herein lies the
answer. If God’s children will work
diligently to live and act like
Jesus, then they will walk in truth. The
pattern is set in His Word. A
daily course set through His Word will
form the likeness of Jesus
Christ in the child of God. No wonder
the Father’s heart is overjoyed!
When His children are living and acting
like His only begotten Son, the
Father is “well pleased”!
