Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? (Jn. 18:38 KJV)
Jesus was brought to Pilate for trial by the Jewish leaders, and that was going to be the trial of Pilate’s entire lifetime! He heard words from a alleged criminal that blew his mind away. He asked Jesus “art thou a king?”, Jesus responded “to this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth” (Jn. 18:37 KJV). What a response! Not so sure about what Jesus was talking about, Pilate said to Jesus “ what is truth?”, but did not get an answer.
The world is looking for the “truth.” Many are still asking the question that Pilate asked. Some are looking for the “real religion.” Others are looking for the correct worldview. The questions regarding our origin and man’s ultimate purpose in life are not getting answered. Instead, more questions are being raised as numerous possible answers are springing up every single day. No human generation has had the amount of knowledge that we have today, yet our generation is the most confused of all human generations of humanity that ever existed.
The truth is that the truth is not in man. God created man, and we will only find our purpose in Him, not in ourselves. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (Jn. 14:6 KJV). Our search for a meaning or purpose in life comes to a dramatic stop once the Father takes His place in our hearts.
The Truth is not just true facts. The truth is Someone. It is God Himself. There is a God, and that is the truth. Man was created by God and was separated from God by sin, heading to eternal destruction. That is a fact of truth. Jesus, is God revealed in the flesh to save humanity. That is truth! When we know the Truth, we become free, and we stop searching.
Can you see the relationship between the Person of the Truth and the facts of truth above?
APPLY THE WORD
Your freedom in life depends on the amount of truth at work in you. When you know the truth, you become free. When you believe a lie, you remain in bondage. Let the truth of the Word of God enlighten your path and bring you out of every bondage into the full life that God has for you.
Ask the Spirit of Truth to reveal the Father to you in increasing dimensions!
