‘Sanctify them by the truth, your word is truth’ John 17:17
These words of John 17v17 are part of Jesus’ prayer for his disciples and are as true a desire for those who are His today as it was for those first disciples. Why did he pray this? Because he wanted them to be equipped for the task he was giving them - the task of going into the world. As we continue to study and discuss the truths each week they become more real to us and we are better able to give an account of the gospel we believe whenever the opportunity arises, at home, at work, with neighbours, friends, indeed with everyone we meet. Wouldn’t it be amazing to value God’s word as much as David did? He took 176 verses in Psalm 119 to express what God’s Word meant to him. But he knew that it was for everyone, ‘The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.’
