Why do we keep falling for lies when the truth has been given to us so clearly?
“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’” Jn 14:6 NIV
Jesus is The Truth. In a world that continues to attempt to create its own “truth,” this may not sound very impressive to us. But the reality is, truth is only truth if it never changes. I am not sure if you have noticed, but everything in this world is constantly changing! We need something, or better, Someone who always stays the same, no matter the century or the circumstance. (Heb 13:8) Who other than God can we point to for this incredible feat?
Jesus is the Truth because Jesus alone is perfect, so He does not need to change. He follows the Father Holy Will, that means that He is perfectly obedient 100% of the time. That means perfect obedient with every thought He entertains, every emotions He allows to be displayed and every decision He will ever make. Jesus and His indescribable Love for us is the only Truth that can set us free. Free from sin, death and Satan…but also free from that MMI mentality that keeps us thinking we do not need God, that we can make it, all on our own. The Truth is we cannot. and so Jesus already has done it all FOR us. We need to decide if we are going to believe and live by this truth, or not.
