THE WORDS OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST 61

KEY SCRIPTURE: John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.

In our key scripture, the Lord said He is the way the truth and the life.  The Lord said He is truth.  He did not just preached the truth but he was the truth.

The biggest challenge facing men is how to know what truth as against error is. Satan the god of this world is the father of lies. A lie can easily be taken for truth because its grand purpose is to deceive. No wonder the Bible says the devil has deceived the whole world (Revelation 12:9). How can all these countless number of religious be truthful?  The Lord Jesus knew very well that there would be so many teachings that proclaim they are the right way yet deceive many.

What is truth? In John 18:38 Pilate asked the Lord this same question, after the Lord Jesus had told him that he came to bear witness to the truth. Truth is reality. It is that which is constant, abiding, faithful and producing *what it says. Truth is that which liberates and leaves no sense of doubt in the mind of the second party.  Truth is light for in its presence darkness is absent. Truth does not hide and has nothing to hide.  Time, place and events does not affects truth in anyway.

The Lord Jesus is the only one who fulfills every one of the above characteristics of truth.  Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever”. The Lord had not diminished in His miraculous power.  His power to save is forever the same. The sick are healed in our day, just as He did in His day.  No one came to Him with a very filthy or evil life and went back the same. John 6:37 says “All that the Father gives me shall come to me, and Him that cometh to me, I will in no wise cast out.

John the beloved wrote the following about Him. “And the word became flesh and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth “. There is nothing doubtful about truth .It does not argue or attempts to explain itself.

Jesus is the greatest one to have as your Lord. Surrender your life to Him today.

FURTHER STUDIES.

John 18:37 “Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice”.

Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the almighty.
