“Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. I Corinthians 13:6

Godly love loves what God loves!

Godly love also despises what God despises!

This is further evidence that God’s love is operating in you!

What God loves is truth and what He despises is anything that opposes truth.

Pontius Pilate asked Jesus, “What is truth?”

He made the assumption that truth is a creed or a concept. Truth is a Person!

Jesus said, “I am the way, the TRUTH and the life.”

Whenever you walk in truth you walk in fellowship with Christ.

Truth is also revealed through God’s written Word, the Bible. Rejoicing in truth means rejoicing in the Word.

Do you do that?

Do you rejoice in God’s Word?

In John 1, Jesus is presented as the Word of God that became flesh. So the written Word of God is the Bible and the Living Word of God is Jesus.

No wonder love rejoices in the Truth! How could God’s love NOT rejoice in His Son!

If you don’t rejoice in truth you will delight in evil which is the rejection or denial of truth. As we have already established, rejecting truth or denying it is to reject or deny Jesus. That never ends well.

The truth is you are not truthful by nature. You are born with a sinful nature and a deceitful heart. So, if you suddenly find yourself loving God’s Word and God’s Son you will know you have been changed by His truth!

So, what is true about your love?
