The world is full of people who are seeking the truth. They want to know their purpose in life and know why they are here in this world. They try to make sense of things that just don’t make sense. At times they get upset and release their tension in porn, drugs, alcohol, and loose living. It is a very sad story to say the least.
Truth, apart from the Bible, cannot be known because the word of God is full of truth and it explains the person who is truth – namely Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the father but by me” (John 14:6). God never intended to hide the truth or to make it unattainable. His word is a repository of all truth that is useful for daily life and clear thinking. A Bible can virtually be found anywhere: a hotel room, your grandma’s home, a book store, a church, or a friend. Everybody has access to a Bible. And by the way, it’s still the best seller. Pick one up today and read it to find out the truth. Truth is known only in the person of Jesus Christ.
As Christians, the word of God sanctifies us because His word is truth (John 17:17). In contrast, unbelievers suppress the truth in unrighteousness, making themselves a target of God’s wrath (Romans 1:18). Although the Bible was written over a span of thousands of years by various authors and may seem an outdated book, quite on the contrary, it is active and alive because it is God’s word. The word of God is sharper than any two edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart (Hebrews 4:12). Sometimes when I read a particular portion of scripture, I feel like it was written by God just for me and the Holy Spirit applies that passage into my life and restores my soul.
To love God is to love truth; to love truth is to love the Word of God. May you walk in the truth of God’s Word today and every day.
