I AM - The Way, the Truth, and the Life - Truth
Greetings Dear Reader,
One of the things that a passing view of Jesus neglects is that he clearly claims to be God. In this particular instance he claims to be “…the truth.” This word is such an elusive thing in a broken world.
Jesus is telling us he is objective truth. He is what is true in any matter under consideration. He is in truth and according to truth what is true. He is reality, fact, and certainty. He is the fulcrum of truth in things pertaining to God, the duty of man, and matters of faith.
The God/man, in the greatest latitude offers us true notions of God. He demonstrates who he is both through supernatural works and practical living of the Father’s commands. When we deny him we deny truth.
Pilate asked him the profound question, “What is truth?” Unfortunately he did not wait to hear the answer. He did not really listen to the words that prompted the question. Jesus made it clear that those who seek the truth hear his voice.
Our culture sees truth as a malleable thing. I cannot avoid Christ and find the truth. It is in following Christ that I follow truth. It is in him that the answers are found. He is the truth and does not need our agreement for it to be so. It is thus with all truth. If we seek the truth with integrity we will find it in him.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
