Act On The Truth

Text:
Luke 8:16-21
Memory Verse:
“But He answered and said to them, ‘My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it’” (Luke 8:21).

At the beginning of the ministry of Jesus, great crowds followed Him in their thousands. On one occasion, He fed five thousand men (John 6:10 & 11) and on another occasion four thousand men.The crowds  must have been drawn to Him by the power they witnessed in healing,
deliverance and raising of the dead. The Jews knew that Jesus was capable of doing what He said He would do, yet they rejected Him. In Matthew 22:16b, the Pharisees sent their disciples to
entangle Him as He was speaking to people saying “Teacher, we know that You are true, and teach the way of God in truth.” Jesus condemned the Pharisees because of their hypocrisy.

Truth must be acted upon in order to be retained. The Samaritan woman knew that the Messiah was the One who would reveal the truth when He appeared. Jesus told her, “I that speak to you am He” (John 4:26). She believed Jesus and went to her own people and invited them to follow her to Jesus. She did not delay to act on the words. It is very important that when God teaches you
something, you act promptly on it.

Truth not acted upon is lost. Do not procrastinate when there is the need to restore a broken relationship. If you are feeling resentful towards someone, practise forgiveness. Remember that the church is the pillar of truth and if you are a believer, it is compulsory for you to “worship God in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24b).

Prayer Points:
1. Father, give me the grace to always act promptly on Your word.
2. Help me to acknowledge the truth in all my actions.
