“Jesus told him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me’” (John 14:6).
What is truth? This morning I read an article in the daily newspaper that was supposedly the “real” truth about an incident that happened recently. Was it? Or was it just someone elses opintion?
Some people lie outright or tell only some of the facts. Some withhold information and give a false impression. Sometimes, people remain silent when they know the truth. Is there anyone we can believe anymore?
And, we have to admit, at one time or another, we all have been guilty of telling lies. Some times because we are unaware of the facts.
Phillip Keller, in his book, What is the Father Like? wrote that what God says is absolutely true because He is the embodiment of all truth, and all truth through all time has its source in God.
He reminded me in his book, that truth is constant and unchanging. God’s truth remains the same from age to age, generation to generation, no matter how things change. God’s truth will set us free – if we act upon it. If we ignore it, our life can be wrecked – broken hearts, hopes, homes and even countries.
If our lives are centered in God’s truth, He is able to renew our minds, calmly guide our emotions and activate our will to tell the truth. His presence brings truth and can bring a magnificent purifying influence on all our life.
The Lord Jesus, the Truth, can restore our soul, heal our diseases, preserve us in peril and make us live in peace. To live life not believing in absolute Truth robs us of the stability He seeks to give to us. We can trust God to be absolutely truthful because He cannot lie. The more we are centered in Him, the more we will become like Him – more truthful.
We sometimes wonder if what we are told by others is the truth. With God, we never have to wonder. He is Truth.
Many times we are disappointed because someone has lied to us. Jesus never lies. You can totally trust Him. Do you know Him? Why don’t you take a step of faith and invite Him to come into your life and be your forever Friend and Saviour. If you are ready to do that, say this prayer and if you are sincere, He will come into your life.
Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life to you and ask you to come in as my Savior and Lord. Take control of my life. Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Make me the kind of person you want me to be.
We would love to hear from you.
