WHAT IS TRUTH?
Today, more than ever before, people are confused about life. They turn to friends, music, sports, and addictive behavior to try and find some sort of truth and comfort in the midst of a crooked world. Various “religious” and “support” groups pull them in many directions claiming to have the answer to their internal void. There is no source of truth in their lives. They have nothing dependable to stand on, and no source of final authority.
It is certain, there is only one absolute truth. What truth are you relying on? Your own feelings? Constantly changing philosophies? Maybe you ignore truth, and hope circumstances will work themselves out. Truth is not relative; truth exists whether you choose to accept it or not. Without truth, life remains unclear without a purpose.
WHERE IS TRUTH?
God is the only source of all truth. He provides truth for everyone through is Holy Word, the Bible. It has been said that “Bible” can stand for basic instructions before leaving earth.
The Bible was completely inspired by God through men. It was written in three languages by over 40 different authors in a period of 1600 years. Every prophecy God promised has come to pass, and it’s 100% historically, scientifically, and geographically accurate. It contains the power to change lives eternally. No other book or person on earth can claim these truths.
The Bible says, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” John 17:17
WHO IS TRUTH?
The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ is truth:
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32
Jesus Christ came down to earth as God in the Flesh. He came to reveal the truth and salvation to everyone who believes on Him.
Everyone has broken God’s commandments. The Bible calls this sin. Realize that everyone falls short of God’s perfect law. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Romans 3:23
The punishment for sin is death. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23 Someday, we will all die. God cannot sin, and because he is righteous, he cannot allow sin to dwell with him. The judgment for sin is hell. A place intended for Satan and his angels.
Jesus Christ came to this earth to take your punishment for sin on the cross. He was dead, buried, and rose again from the grave for you. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
Jesus lived perfectly and fulfilled God’s law for us so we can spend eternity in heaven with Him.
PERSONALLY ACCEPT TRUTH
God created us to fellowship with him. He wants you to live an abundant life with purpose. He loved us so much he made a way to redeem us through Jesus Christ. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Today, you can accept the only truth by faith. Believe what God says. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He will remain faithful. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9
Get alone with God and pray that He will forgive you of all your sin. Admit you’re a sinner, and understand that without Jesus Christ, your punishment is eternal separation from God in hell. Jesus paid your debt so you don’t have to. Thank Him for saving you.
