Truth Wins

Genesis 2:23-24 (NLT)
   23 “At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’” 24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.

The following verses express the attitude with which truth wins.

 A Pattern to Follow

Ephesians 4:15 (NLT)
   …. we will speak the truth in love….

 2 Timothy 2:25 (NLT)
   Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth.

 1 John 3:18 (NLT)
      Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.

 2 Corinthians 6:11-12 (NLT)
      Oh, dear Corinthian friends! We have spoken honestly with you, and our hearts are open to you. 12 There is no lack of love on our part…..

 A Precept to Obey
1 Corinthians 13:6 (NLT)
   It (Love) ………. rejoices whenever the truth wins…..

 A Promise to Share
2 John 1:3 (NLT)
   Grace, mercy, and peace, which come from God the Father and from Jesus Christ—the Son of the Father—will continue to be with us who live in truth and love.

A Prayer to Ask
Psalm 40:11 (NIV)
   ….O LORD; may your love and your truth always protect me.

A Warning to Heed
Hebrews 13:4 (NIV)
   Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

A Plea Expressed
1 Timothy 2:1&3-4 (NLT)
     1 I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them…..3 This is good and pleases God our Savior,
4 who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.

Marriage as God created it, between a man and a woman, is a relationship cherished, a joy shared, and a glory of God. When marriage is done God’s way marriage is honored, love triumphs and truth wins!!!
