What is Truth?

imagesWhat is truth?  That may be the question of this age, and every age.

When Jesus was before Pilate, one of the questions that he asked Jesus was this – what is truth?

In an age of conflicting ideas about truth, about revelation, about right and wrong, one of the things that we have to get right is this. What is truth?

Well, listen to the words of Jesus this morning 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.

Jesus says this.  Truth is not a concept.  Truth is a person.  Truth is not an idea.  Truth is a person.

He is truth.  He is the way.  He is life.  No one comes to the Father, but through Him.  He is truth.

So, to know truth, here is the answer.  Know Jesus.  He is the source of our truth.  It’s not that He is a truth.  He is THE truth.

I told my folks at bible study here at Asbury that my goal is not to make them better people.  My goal is to help them meet and know Jesus better.  If we have met Jesus, I truly believe that He will take care of our actions. That’s what He does.  He will burn away the things in life that we shouldn’t be doing. And He will increase in us the things that we should be doing.

Chase Him.  He will take of the rest.

So, today, to know truth, chase after Jesus.  Seek Him.  Know Him.  Give yourself and your life to Him more and more and more.  He is truth. For the questions we face, the decisions in our lives, the choices we make, turn to Him.

Seek Him.

Know Him.

And in that, we will know truth. We will. Because He is truth.

Today, in all things, seek Jesus. And we will find truth.
