Proverbs 23:23 

[23] Get the truth and never sell it; also get wisdom, discipline, and good judgment.



> The truth of GOD is worth all the cost


Matthew 13:44

> Regardless of the cost, BUY IT 

> Regardless of the price, DON'T SELL IT


John 8:44

[44] For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies. 


Isaiah 59:13

[13] We know we have rebelled and have denied the Lord. We have turned our backs on our God. We know how unfair and oppressive we have been, carefully planning our deceitful lies.

Revelation 21:8

> Difference between truth and THE TRUTH 


John 4:23-24

[23] But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. [24] For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”



> In spirit and in truth

> Only what is in the Holy Spirit is the truth 


1 Timothy 4:1

[1] Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons. 



> True worship is in operation in our lives when we touch the truth in the Holy Spirit 

> Spirit must be in the truth

[3] In him lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.


 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge 



> The Bible is the only place we can find the truth

[14] But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.”

Today I will fully submit fully to GOD'S word. The only source of the truth and abundant life
