God’s word is the plumb line by which we measure truth, and it is essential for distinguishing the real from the fake. Psalm 119:160 declares: “The sum of your word is truth.” The totality of God’s word amounts to truth, so knowing God’s word is imperative for discerning what is false and living a successful life. We live in an age where many believe that all truth is relative and not objective. The world bombards us with mixed messages, often false, or at least deficient. But a half truth is a whole lie. Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). Jesus didn’t say that truth will set you free. He said the truth that you know will set you free. Are you intimately acquainted with God’s word?
