Daily Reading: 14th June 2015

John 14.6 cont.

6 Jesus said to him: “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.

When Jesus stood before Pilate He told him that He came into the world to testify about the truth. Pilate asked Jesus: “What is Truth?”. Strangely Pilate doesn’t seem to have waited to listen to any reply that Jesus may have given.

As I am writing we are less than a week away from the UK’s General Election. The Electorate want the political candidates to tell them the truth about what they intend to do if they are elected to form the next government.

We all know that Politicians have a credibility problem, with people not trusting what they say. Many believe that Politicians may say anything in order to get elected. Therefore, people doubt that what Politicians say is actually true.

Truth is important for all of us. Truth is the basis of trust.

Jesus said that He is the truth. This means that there is no falsehood in Him. Never once did Jesus tell a lie, nor did He deceive anyone.

The word of God tells us this:

He is the Rock; His deeds are perfect. Everything He does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright He is! – Deuteronomy 32.4 (NLT).

Since Jesus and the Father are One, this also applies to Jesus. He is perfection, in Him there is no shadiness. His every world is the absolute and complete truth.

John also wrote these words:

20 We know that the Son of God is here, and an understanding has been given to us so that we should know the truth, and in His Son Jesus Christ we are in the truth. This One is the true God and eternal life – 1 John 5.20.

It is in knowing Jesus that we enter into the most truthful relationship that there is. It is by His presence within us that we have a constantly developing understanding of the Truth.

We need to embrace the words of Psalm 118.8-9:

[8] It is better to trust the LORD than to put confidence in people.[9] It is better to trust the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
