Reading Verse: Leviticus 4:1-35
How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word.
When Joseph was in the house of Potiphar, his wife gave Joseph the temptation to fall into sin. But Joseph didn’t follow the wrong path that, he then ran away from Potiphar’s house. Joseph chose the truth instead, and didn’t live in sin. Similarly in this life we always have to choose the truth, meaning that all of our actions shouldn’t go against His commands. Jesus is the righteous God, who wants His people to live in holiness and in the truth. The Word of God says that we should be holy.
It is written in Matthew 5:16 that we are salt and light of the world so wherever we are we should always reflect the light of Chirst. We also should always live in the truth for our life to give impact to others. In order to live in the truth we must live in the truth of the Word so we can avoid evil things. It is written in Psalms 119:105 that the Word of God is a lamp for our feet and a light on our paths. So, we should always live by the Word because only by His words we can be guided to live in the truth.
Furthermore, in order to live in the truth we should watch our relationship with others, as written in 1 Corinthians 15:33 that bad company corrupts good character. So, we should be able to pay attention to whom we are hanging out with so that we can live in the truth of the Lord. When we choose to live right, it means that we live in holiness since God we worship is holy.
When we live in the truth God will give us a reward. God will never leave those who live by the truth; He will always guard their life. God will also lead the life path of righteous people. Even in the middle of troubles, He will always give His help. In addition, He will also listen to the prayers of righteous people. He will never ignore the prayers requests of those who live in the truth.
The love and guidance of God will always follow the life of believers. Let’s from this moment on we can choose to live in the truth and believe that God’s blessings will come upon us. Amen.
When we live in the truth God will give us a reward
