“Truth is a Person, which is Christ”
Truth has it own template and we must learn to follow it so that we can have a full obedience to the truth. When the template of truth is not obeyed or followed according to the way it is, then we are not doing the truth. The essence of truth is to obey truth. There is no essence of hearing the truth and we are not obeying the truth as it is expected of us.
Our beloved John said of some brethren who are walking in truth according the way it was given by the Father.
2 John 1:4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
You see, these brethren were walking according to the template of truth as the Father gave it. It says as we have received a commandment from the Father. To obey truth is to obey it as we have received it from the Father. God bless you!
