Obey the Truth

1 Peter 1:22-23 KJV Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: [23] Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
There is only one way for us to purify our souls and that is by obeying the truth. When we trusted Christ as our Savior, we obeyed the truth of the Gospel. As we obey the truth, it ought to cause us to increase in our love for the brethren. This love ought to be a fervent or intense love. In and of ourselves, we find it sometimes difficult to love as we ought. The Word of God is not only the vehicle by which we are saved, but it is the vehicle which teaches us how to love others as we should. Let’s make sure that we are obeying the truth today.
