Refining Truth

This is a subsidiary post of Truth.

As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are undergoing a process by which our knowledge and understanding of the truth is being refined.  That is, we are coming to know more precisely the truth which initially attracted us.  We begin our walk with the Lord by knowing the Lord; we end by knowing Him well.

Luke 1:4  –  “so that you might know the exact truth about the things you have been taught.”

Acts 18:26  –  “…they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately.”

Acts 24:22  –  “But Felix, having a more exact knowledge about the Way, put them off…”

Hebrews 1:3  –  “…and the exact representation of His nature…”  –  Various of the holy men and women of God through the ages have been approximate representations of God’s nature, but Jesus of Nazareth was “the exact representation” of God’s nature.

Jeremiah 15:19  –  “if you extract the precious from the worthless”

Malachi 3:2, 3
