“But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth” (Jn. 4:23-24 ESV).
“And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says ‘I know him’ but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected” (1 Jn. 2:3-5a ESV).
This song, “In Truth,” is about our intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, about how much he loves and cares for us, how he listens to the prayers of those who are his servants, how he cares for our needs, and about how he intercedes for us to God the Father. It is about the importance of time spent daily in his word in hearing the Lord speak his truths to our hearts, and about how he comforts and heals us.
It is about how, “in truth,” he died on the cross for our sins so that we could be free from the ultimate penalty of sin (eternity in hell), and so we could be set free from the control of sin over our day-to-day lives. And, it is about how he has called us to not only be saved from sin, but to be his obedient servants in following him “in truth” wherever he leads us, and to do whatever he has called us to do and to be, including being his servants to others in meeting their needs.
An Original Work / January 10, 2012
Fellowshipping with my Lord, Savior, King.
He is Lord of all; Lord of ev’rything.
He is with me through ev’ry hour of day,
List’ning to me speak, as I humbly pray.
He cares for my needs,
and He intercedes for me,
‘cause He loves me in ev’ry way.
Obey His commands, and do all He says.
Sitting at His feet, daily in His word,
Let His word speak to me in ev’ry way,
Giving comfort and healing through each day.
Oh, how Jesus loves,
And He cares for you,
Which is why He died for our sins, in truth.
Love our Lord God, Savior, and King of kings.
Worship Him in truth, for He reigns supreme.
He created us with a plan in mind
For us to be His servants, and Him mind.
Follow Him in truth;
Go where’er He leads.
Share His love with others, and their needs meet.
Others: their needs meet.
