Truth to Live By

 The Sonshine    October 2021  by Walter Olsen

Introduction

If one is a believer in Jesus Christ and thus is truly saved, he seeks to live his life by the truth of God’s Word. The Bible is not just an interesting book to periodically read, but it is a book of life. The Bible contains truth needed to sustain one’s spiritual life in a healthy condition. It is a book that, through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, he will be able to maintain personal contact with God and also to bear spiritual fruit in his life. Jesus said, “Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me” (Jn. 15:3-4).

 

In this article, I would like to call attention to some verses of Scripture that are especially significant to me. Of course, all of the Bible is significant because it is the Word of the living God. None of it can be neglected. Still, some verses are especially important for daily living. They give us special encouragement and comfort. Some of the veses I find especially helpful to me are the following.

A Plea For Forgiveness      September 2021

Introduction

The title, A Plea For Forgiveness, is taken from the heading of Psalm 51 in the King James Bible. I use it here because it adequately summarizes the truth of the chapter. Further, it speaks of the great need of humanity today.

 

Psalm 51 is King David’s plea to God after the acknowledgment of his  sin with Bathsheba. His sin brought shame and a sense of separation from God. Thankfully, he was able to reestablish his fellowship and walk with God.   This truth is so much needed today in the lives of all believers as we become convicted of our sins and see them for what they really are in the sight of God.

 

The purpose of this article is to walk through Psalm 51:1-7 and make some needed applications to our own lives including the following:
