“Buy the Truth – Don’t Sell it”

Introduction: Truth. What is truth? Where is truth? How can I know the truth?

Solomon wrote, “Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding” (Prov 23:23).

1. Truth is Jesus! (John 14:6) – “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Without Jesus being the Truth, there is No knowing, without Him being the way, there is No going, and without Him being the life, there is No growing!

2. Truth came thru Jesus Christ! (John 1:17) – “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.”

Jesus brought truth. He embodies the word – that which is revealed and not concealed. Do you want to know the truth?

3. Truth sets us free! (John 8:32) – “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

The Truth about ourselves, our sin, and our Savior sets us free! Are you free?

4. Truth can be spoken in love! (Eph 5:16) – But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.”

This passage speaks of both unity and maturity. Furthermore, it discusses diversity. Are you mature in the Lord?

Conclusion: Would you buy the truth? Will you sell it?

Truth changes lives!

Truth dispels lies.

Truth is God’s Word.

Love it, learn it, and live it!

Love y’all,
