Love The Truth
Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline and understanding. - Proverbs 23:23
Pilate, with Jesus standing before him, asked the question multitudes have been asking for centuries, "What is truth?" And, just like Pilate, the multitudes are not as interested in the truth as they are in figuring out a way to protect themselves.
I ask the question: What is truth? Truth is the absence of falsehood. It is the factual representation of the way something really is. In reference to God it is the actual and factual revelation of himself.
The psalmist declared, "The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold" (Psalm 119:72). When we treasure God's truth more than the riches of this world we will begin to understand his truth.
Jesus had just told his disciples that he was going away, but he would come back and get them. He then said, "You know the way to the place where I am going."
Thomas said to him, "Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way?"
Jesus answered Thomas with a revelation that has been a standard to the Christian faith ever since. Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."(John 14:3-6)
Christ is the ultimate truth, the epitome of God's revelation of himself. The only way to the Father is through Jesus the Christ. The only way to the life the Father offers is through Jesus the Christ. Jesus is the truth manifest.
Prayer: Thank you for showing the way to truth and giving us your life - everlasting life. In Jesus name. Amen.
Message: When we treasure God's truth more than the riches of this world we will begin to understand his truth. Christ is the ultimate truth, the epitome of God's revelation of himself. The only way to the Father is through Jesus Christ. The only way to the life the Father offers is through Jesus Christ. Jesus is truth incarnate.
Affirmation: Jesus Christ is truth incarnate. I have embraced Christ as Lord and Savior, therefore, the truth of God is in me.
Reflection: If I say I have the truth, but I do not love others as Christ loves them, do I really have the truth? Give some thought to the idea of what our life should look like if we have truly embraced Jesus who claimed to the way and the truth and the life.
