[Shepherding the Sheep with One Heart] Discern Yourself by Truth

  • 2015.10.27 13:51

God finds the people He wants to use in this era with his fiery eyes. To be someone who is used by God, you should discern what He is uncomfortable to use. Everyone should have the knowledge that can discern themselves. If they cannot, they feel irritated. Without discernment, we cannot solve a problem for decades that can be solved instantly. Discernment and judgement are not from human wisdom, but from God who is the beginning of knowledge. Jesus is the light. “The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.” (John 1:9) The light discerns the dark, and whether something is clean or not. The person who has the word of Jesus Christ, the light, has discernment. The light is unrivaled and unchallengeable. When we are in Jesus, the light, we can know the work of the devil, demons and evil spirits and the sinful nature. As soon as the light comes, the dark goes away and we can distinguish our sins. Jesus is the truth and the life. “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) The truth is unchangeable and is not supplemented or modified. If it has to be complemented, amended, added to or subtracted from, it is not the truth. Life is to live forever, and the truth is also eternal. By the truth we know whether we are alive or dead in sins. Without Jesus, we cannot distinguish between eternal life and death. If we do without Jesus, it is a discernment without light and truth. Blessed are those who have eyes that can discern themselves by truth, unfailing truth, and definite life.
