Purified by 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.
 
We are purified by truth. Truth, here, is not subjective truth. It is absolute truth. the only source for absolute truth is the Word of God. Truth will lead us to ove one another in a correct way. This is not about how we might feel or how we might think. Real love is based on truth. It is the truth of God’s Word that brings the Gospel to us. Through the Gospel we see our need of salvation and are born again when we place our trust in Christ as Savior. Let’s allow the truth to purify our hearts. None of us are perfect and there is always rom for improvement. Let’s allow that improvement to come by the Word of God.
