Sanctified by truth

16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.  John 17:16-19

This world is not our home.  We are here for a very short period of time.  Our lives on this earth are but a breath compared to eternity.  The world we currently live in is fallen and many are in bondage to the lies and deceptions of the enemy.  As followers of Jesus Christ we are simply transformed into the image of Christ as we spend time in God’s word daily.

It is impossible to be transformed into the image of Christ if we are not reading and studying God’s word daily.  We cannot only merely read God’s word but we must be mediating upon it daily.  As we meditate upon God’s word the Holy Spirit supernaturally releases deep revelation into our hearts.  To understand the depths of God’s word only comes through the revelation of the Holy Spirit.

It is very easy in the world we live in today to become distracted by all that is around us.  We are bombarded by media and entertainment at every turn.  We must make it a priority to get alone with the Lord and spend time in prayer and the study of His word.  Those who are hungry shall be satisfied.  Those who seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and seek Him with all their heart will come to know the heart of the Living God.  Let us hunger and thirst for the Lord than life itself.
