“I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” – John 14:6
Throughout the Bible, truth is emphasized, while lying and deception (except in extreme cases, to save a life), are condemned. Knowledge of the truth in any given situation is absolutely crucial. “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32) Jesus Himself is the ultimate source for truth in all areas of life, as is His Divinely inspired written word. “Sanctify them by the truth; Your Word is truth.” (John 17:17)
We should pray that the Lord brings His Word to our minds and hearts, no matter what we face. “Never take Your Word of truth from my mouth, for I have put my hope in Your laws.” (Psalm 119:43) “All Your words are true; all Your righteous laws are eternal.” (Psalm 119:160)
Jesus and His message of salvation are the pivotal point of history itself. “And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit.” (Ephesians 1:13) Don’t keep the truth of Jesus to yourself – share it, that all may have opportunity to hear!
