Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
Why is it so important for believers to stand firm on God's truth? This because God's truth is what all humanity will be judged because He is sovereign and knows the truth. Scripture tells us that Christ is the way, the truth and the light (John 14:6); scripture also lets us know that the truth will make you free (John 8:32).
Standing firm on the truth, then the person is free of worries of what to say next when the conversation arise. As stated in our text that the truth of God's Word sanctifies all who believes and stand on the truth. The term sanctify is to set apart and or consecrate which is to make holy, which is what God is and so is all believers.
Believers are sanctified because they have been brought out of the darkness of sin into the light of righteousness. This was done through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Therefore, all believers have a blood bought right to enter into the holiness of God's presence.
Being sanctified in Christ, believers have committed themselves to truth and righteousness while knowing that the truth of God's word is what will last through the end of time as it has from the beginning.
Let me encourage all to stand firm on the truth of God's word even if you have to stand alone; just stand God is with you.
