"His truth is marching on." These song lyrics reflect a concern and passion that the apostle Paul had. "Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you; and that we will be rescued from perverse and evil men; for not all have faith." (2 Thessalonians 3.1-2)
It is of the utmost importance that God's word be shared far and wide, and that it be embraced as a life guide. It remains, as it always has been, God's expressed truth. To embrace it is to find the pathway of life; to reject it is the ultimate disastrous decision.
Those who have embraced and loved His truth can claim this promise: "But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. We have confidence in the Lord concerning you, that you are doing and will continue to do what we command. May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ." (2 Thessalonians 3.3-5)
Those who love and practice truth find strength and protection. They sink roots down deep into the Father's love, and find steadiness in life through connection with Christ. Theirs is a productive and satisfying life.
May His word be honored in your life, and may you readily share it with others. As those who do so, we are confident of His protection and strength, and your steadfast in life as you await and work fully for the coming King and kingdom.
