What might be true of our negative circumstances is not the Truth of who we are in Jesus. Join us for today’s episode as we explore the question:
When is what is true not the Truth?
1. Truth is never powered solely by a negative perspective.
I love wisdom because it creates a new awareness of what is possible. Because we’re exposed to Truth that frees us to see things differently. And that’s a major key: if what you’re learning doesn’t set you free, it’s not the Truth. It may be true about our old man behavior, but it’s not the truth of who we are now in Jesus.[01:46]
When we find the negatives in our lives […], this is our opportunity to set our mind on things above because that’s the Truth. We can do that because our old man is dead and our new man is hidden with Christ in God. Check it out in Colossians 3 verses 1-4.
2. Only the Truth can set us free and produce lasting transformation into the image of Christ.
Focusing on what is true in terms of behavior or mindsets is not going to set anyone free. Not you, not anyone. It may produce in us more measures of behavioral change, but it won’t produce lasting transformation into the image of Christ.[06:46]
Remember 2 Corinthians 3:18: “But we all with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory just as by the spirit of the Lord.” You know the words, “You become what you behold.” We want to behold who Jesus is, full of grace and truth.
3. Partnership with the Holy Spirit in Truth allows us to break through into more revelation that will transform us into the image of Christ.
Jesus knew that the Holy Spirit is the one who is promised to be able to teach us all things. He’s our Teacher, our Helper, and our Comforter on the days that we’re not getting it. He’s a genius at taking the things of God and making them real in our lives. So why would anyone leave such a genius partner out of their process?[09:27]
