"----- Our Lord,...who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel...." (2 Timothy 1)
The Gospel of the Kingdom and the King, Jesus, is the Gospel of "life and immortality." Luther said, "the body they may kill," persecutors, disease, old age notwithstanding, "His truth abideth still;" and so the truth of our text. Jesus "abolished death and brought" the truth of the "life and immortality" which is in Him only, to all humanity. But the "life" of which our text speaks is the Biblical "eternal life," life which not only knows no end, but never had a beginning. Think about that and you will go on overload.
The "God-Breathed" Word is Truth, and Truth is constantly under attack. But Truth does not need defending, only our pet theologies, trendy religion need that. In recent generations, it has become vogue to speak of making the Gospel "relevant." You don't make truth relevant. Neither does Truth need "creative" ways to be communicated. Truth is relevancy, and effectively communicates in any culture in any age. Jesus asked the Father, "Sanctify them by Your truth (Remember, Jesus said,"I am the truth). Your word is truth" (Revelation says, "His name is called the Word of God"). You and I are sanctified, set apart from the lies of the age, by reading, hearing, obeying, living and walking in the Truth, Jesus Christ. And by refusing to listen to Olbermann and Maddow, you will overcome the onslaught on the Truth by the lies of this very wicked generation. Truth always rules! Or, as the kids would say------------- "Truth rocks!"
Father, in Jesus' Name, I thank You that I never have to wonder about Truth as long as I obey and submit to You and Your Word. Amen.
