commentary
Commentary

Good Morning friends, how wonderful it is to gather together in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus. Last week we began our three part series on understanding and appropriating truth for our lives. We began with remembering what Jesus says to his disciples; "I am the truth, the way and the life". In other words Jesus says to them in spite of fallacious claims that there are other ways to arrive at truths, for the believer the truth is not separate from Christ who is truth that contains life and light.

Can you remember any time in your life when you had to comprehend a thing or a concept? You had to retain the information that was presented in order to build upon. In other words you had to practice retention, retain what you received. Retain means to maintain possession of, to keep or hold in a particular place, condition, or position. Hold the truth of God's word for our lives is the place of faith and trust working on our behalf in order for breakthroughs in our lives.

For the believer it is not only hearing and believing, but retaining what you have heard, learned and applied. This is the place where the truth is established and becomes a part of who you are and how you are known. James addresses this in Chapter 1 and verse 22, we are to be doers of the word and not hearers only.

Retaining the biblical truth for our life results in fruitfulness for living. You move from just knowing the truth to being and living the truth.

John 15:4 ...as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except in abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
