John 18:38a “Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?”
This is a question that all of our society is pondering, what is truth? As believers in Christ we know that answer, we find it in John 14:6, “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”
From this understanding there are a few implications for us as believers that I want to cover.
1. We love truth. As believers in Christ our love should be for the truth. We do not love falsehood. Whether this be in our culture or in our own lives. We aim to live out the truth. This means when the light exposes falsehood in our own lives, false beliefs, false motives, false actions we are quick to repent and turn to the truth. This morning reading this I was moved and reminded at how much we love truth. Truth sets you free. As believers we do not fear revealing our sin and repenting, that fear is not of God but of Satan. Know this statement, a secret revealed has no power over you.
2. Jesus is truth. The only way to the Father is through Jesus Christ. He is the savior, He is the way, there is no other way. As believers this is our conviction. We do not believe that there is another way to the Father. Secular Humanism says, that your truth is your truth and my truth is my truth. The Gospel says, Jesus is truth. Jesus alone is truth. Do you really believe that this morning?
I pray this morning that we would be willing to live in that truth. Do not be ashamed of the truth, the truth will set you free. I had to opportunity this morning to share the truth with a man this morning that trusted in his actions, our actions do not save. Only Jesus is the truth, only Jesus is the way.
