Day 10 -God Is Truth

January 10, 2024
Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well.
From now on you do know Him and have seen Him.”
—John 14:6-7

We live in a relativist world. Many people have their own religion or philosophy, and each claims that his or hers is the one that holds truth. At the same time, our world’s pervasive attitude is, “If it’s true for you, fine; but it’s not true for me.” How can we be sure our God, Jesus Christ, really is truth in the face of such an open, uncommitted attitude toward faith?

Jesus knew we would face this challenge, so He is explicit in how He addresses it. In today’s verse, He states without ambiguity that He is our way, truth and life. Everything He tells us is true, and He is the only way to gain both eternal life and a fulfilled life on Earth. He doesn’t leave room for addition or subtraction or say, “I am true as long as you believe it.” No—He is the full embodiment of truth.

Other religions or philosophies may have versions of the truths the Bible gives us. For example, most other religious founders or leaders tell us to love our neighbor, forgive enemies, respect creation and do charitable deeds. However, Jesus makes it clear that only His truth is complete. Through Him, we can know and see God, and as we get to know Him, we will understand more of His words.

Truth is difficult to pin down at times, especially with so many voices claiming to have it. If you’re unsure God is truth or if you’re a Christian but struggling with a particular truth in the Bible, turn to the source of truth. Ask Him to open your eyes, and use your new knowledge to spread God’s truth and share the life He wants to give.
