TRUTH EXERCISE: HOW TO MAKE THE HEART GROW STRONGER

Hearing and believing truth is the exercise regimen for the soul. Spiritual health and vitality come with the repeated lifting of truth, the heavier the truth, the stronger the faith becomes. When the truth of God is heard and believed, it transforms the mind and heart. It strengthens the soul. It cleanses the spirit. It guides our steps. It makes us better people….

Jesus challenged his disciples to exercise themselves in truth. “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32)

Truth may be defined as the revelation of the ways of God in the world of man. It is the divine perspective on reality, pristine and unadulterated, in contrast to the shifting claims of human consensus, muddy and uncertain. Truth, as proposed by God in the Bible, offers clarity and certainty, the two things the human mind and heart crave, and the only real remedy for despair.
