One of John's favorite words appears to be "truth." And since his writing is inspired, we know truth is also one of God's favorite words.

1. 1 John 1:6 
Genuine fellowship with Christ requires walking in the light of truth.

2. 1 John 1:8 
Those who deny or excuse their sins can't walk in truth. (See "Calling God a Liar.")

3. 1 John 2:4 
Those who claim to know Christ but disobey His commands have no truth in their souls.

4. 1 John 2:7-11  and 1 John 3:18-19
Those who walk in truth prove it by loving others with actions, not simply with words.

5. 1 John 2:20-21 
Those who have God’s Spirit know the difference between truth and lies.

6. 1 John 4:6 
Those who refuse to listen to God's truth are deceived by a spirit of falsehood.

7. 1 John 5:6 
The Spirit of truth confirms Christ's testimony to us. 

Truth is something we walk, talk, think, know, and share. Let's ask God to make "truth" one of our favorite words too.
