Christ is the Truth
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, I am the way and the reality
and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me. John 1:17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and reality
came through Jesus Christ.
Words of Ministry
Truth is just Christ Himself. Truth is not words concerning
Christ. Truth is not doctrines about Christ. Truth is just
Christ Himself.... Men can speak about the doctrine of co-
crucifixion, but others do not see the power of crucifixion
in them. They can speak about the resurrection life, but
others do not see the resurrection power in them. If what we
preach are merely doctrines, then we only have things that
are dead, not something that is living.
Brothers and sisters, if we do not have the Lord living
within us, and if it is not the Lord who is our truth, a
teaching that guides our action is nothing but dead works; it
is not life, and it is not living. Do you see the difference?
The difference here is too great and too tremendous.... When
we speak something out of life
[referring to a word of apology]
, we do not speak it because we remembered to speak it. A power within us motivates us to speak. The Lord is controlling us; a doctrine is not coaching or controlling us. The day will come when the Lord will open our eyes to see that spiritual reality is not apart from Christ. We do not present some doctrines to others. Rather, we lead others to Christ Himself. We do not need to remember a doctrine and then act according to it. Rather, Christ is living in us, and Christ is becoming our truth.
