The Truth Is Indispensable
The Bible is the indispensable truth.Romans 10:17: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
John 8:32: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.John 17:17: Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
Only the Bible can free men from sin and only the Bible and sanctify them (set them apart for God.) And the Bible is the place where you can learn of the other indispensable truth, the Lord Jesus.John 14:6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. II John 2: For the truths sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon on II John 2:
Once let the truth of God obtain an entrance into the human heart and subdue the whole man unto itself, no power human or infernal can dislodge it. We entertain it not as a guest but as the master of the house-this is a Christian necessity, he is no Christian who doth not thus believe. Those who feel the vital power of the gospel, and know the might of the Holy Ghost as He opens, applies, and seals the Lord*s Word, would sooner be torn to pieces than be rent away from the gospel of their salvation. What a thousand mercies are wrapt up in the assurance that the truth will be with us for ever; will be our living support, our dying comfort, our rising song, our eternal glory; this is Christian privilege, without it our faith were little worth. Some truths we outgrow and leave behind, for they are but rudiments and lessons for beginners, but we cannot thus deal with Divine truth, for though it is sweet food for babes, it is in the highest sense strong meat for men. The truth that we are sinners is painfully with us to humble and make us watchful; the more blessed truth that whosoever believeth on the Lord Jesus shall be saved, abides with us as our hope and joy. Experience, so far from loosening our hold of the doctrines of grace, has knit us to them more and more firmly; our grounds and motives for believing are now more strong, more numerous than ever, and we have reason to expect that it will be so till in death we clasp the Saviour in our arms.
