So, the real question is, do I really care about the “TRUTH?” Does the truth mean more to me than popularity? Does standing firmly for the truth really matter to me? Can we honestly, truly know THE truth? Is there a real truth for us to seek, learn, know and follow? The answer to this is YES!! There is real, solid truth for us to know and follow. What is that truth? Listen to what Jesus said in John 14:6 where He said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” Now, notice, Jesus did not say He was some truth, part of the truth or one of the truths. He said He is THE truth, the one and only truth. And, the ONLY way to the Father (God) is through Him. That is, the only way to heaven is through Jesus and His truth. So, is it possible for us to know THE truth, to know and understand what Jesus is and how He is to be applied to our lives? Absolutely! Jesus said in John 8:32, “And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” This means we must listen to Jesus, do what He says do, the way He says do it in order for the truth to make us free, that is, free from sin and saved for eternity. Where do we find this truth, in the Bible! The Bible is the work of the Godhead, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. All worked together to provide Their Word for us. “But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.” (2 Peter 1:20-21). Hear also what Jesus said in John 14:26, “But, the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.” Brethren, we can know the truth so, let’s forget about being popular, let’s not let what is popular blind us to the truth, to Christ and His word. May we all stand firm for God, Christ and the Holy Spirit in every way, in all we do!
Until next week, I love you all,
