“But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.”
As the church, the Body of Christ, we must realize how important we are to God and His plan, to the world and to one another. God has invested His truth in the Church – we are It! If the world, or the universe, for that matter, is going to understand what truth is, they are going to find it out from the Body of Christ. Paul tells us in this Scripture that we are the ground, the support, the prop, the mainstay of the truth. We must see how vital it is for us, especially every Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher, to search out the Scriptures through the Holy Spirit’s help so that we have the exact truth of God and represent it properly. Then, we must all get on board with the truth, guard it and protect it from error so that God is properly represented. We must all humble ourselves and search out what the Father has ordained as truth.
