Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. – John 17:17 (NIV)
Where do you find the foundations for your faith? Is it in a church leader? A word of prophecy? A cute social media graphic?
If we’re honest, we can sometimes realize that we’ve put our faith in a person, friend, prophecy, and not into the word of God. When we put our faith in whether a Christian treats us right, and allow that to be the basis of whether we believe or not, we’ve placed our faith in the wrong thing.
Our faith and the foundation for our faith should be only in the Bible. Christians sometimes mess up, make mistakes, and do horrible things. Do we allow our experiences with others to determine whether our faith is real?
Many of us do, and so we falter in our faith because our faith is based in a person rather than in the word of God.
God’s word is truth. The Bible declares time and time again that it is the truth. And the Bible is the way that God speaks mainly to us. So rather than basing your faith in a person, prophecy or event, determine to place your faith in the true unchanging word of God.
