Anglican Devotional 9 October 2021 – Walking In The Truth
TOPIC: Walking In The Truth
READ: Revelation 10:8-11 (NKJV)
Then the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, “Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth.”
So I went to the angel and said to him, “Give me the little book.” And he said to me, “Take and eat it; and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.”
Then I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. But when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter.
And he said to me, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings.”
The times in which we live now, popularly referred to by many as ‘end-times or the last days’, are periods in which managing the truth is a virtue that is fast becoming scarce, even in the Church which is expected to be the pillar and foundation of truth (1 Timothy 3:15). In these last days, one of the characteristics of the people as prophesied is the inability to endure sound teachings from the word of God (truth) (2 Timothy 4:3). The scroll fully represents the truth which is commonly available to us as the word of God John 17:17).
Truth is therefore priceless, revealed, and dependable and must be spread to all lands and seas and it must however be obeyed. We may like the truth but the greatest challenge is our readiness to accept and retain it, irrespective of how bitter it may be to us (verse 10). The evils destroying us today can be well checked if we make up our mind to walk in the truth (3 John verse 4). How have you lived for these preceding nine months of the year 2021? Have you lived in the truth?
PRAYER: Dear Lord, open my eyes to see the wonderful truth of Your Word and walk in it. Amen.DOWNLOAD AUDIO/MP3
