I AM The Truth

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” John 14:6

Let’s talk about Truth. What is truth? There are many opinions on that. It seems that we live in a society that is convinced there is no absolute truth. Many see the Bible and the words of Jesus as outdated or too restrictive. Our sinful flesh self wants to be free to decide what is truth. We do what we want and we see “our version of the truth” as truth to us.

Jesus again is very bold in His statement saying, “I am the truth”. The Hebrew word for truth is emet אמת . The Hebrew alphabet is very unique and based on the word emet itself and its’ relation in the Hebrew alphabet (אמת: first letter, middle letter & last letter), the word emet means the whole truth flows from the beginning, through the middle to the end. All three Hebrew letters are grounded and stable.

Jesus is the Word and the Word is Truth.

“In the beginning was the Word,and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God”.
John 1:1-2

Notice that the “Word” starts with a capital “W” The Word is Jesus. He was with God in the beginning and He is God. Part of the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In John 17, Jesus is getting ready to leave His disciples and go to the cross. He is praying to the Father for them and for all believers to come. He knows the world is going to confuse and lie to them as it confuses & lies to us. He wants to be clear on what to believe. God’s laws are truth.

Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness,
And Your law is truth.
Psalm 119:142 (NKJV)

“Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth”.
John 17:17-19 (NKJV)

God’s Word is Truth. Jesus is The Word. Jesus is Truth.

The world is full of lies and half truths. Our enemy, the devil and his entourage of evil spirits roam the earth looking to cause trouble, especially for Believers. (1 Peter 5:8) Satan tells us lies, lies that make us feel like we aren’t redeemable, feel like we aren’t loved, feel like we have no value—ALL LIES!

Jesus calls Satan the father of lies, “… He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it”. John 8:44 (NKJV)

Jesus knew we would need a “truth compass” so to speak. An irrefutable Truth. We need to know Jesus to hear His voice and recognize the Truth.

During His trial in Pilate’s court, this conversation was recorded in John: “Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” John 18:37(NKJV)

Don’t get lost in the lies of the world. You are precious, loved and valued. Jesus said He is the Way, the Only Way… the path of truth, and the truth is…He loves you and provides freedom and hope.

“And you shall know the truth, and the truth will make you free”. John 8:32

Know Jesus and He will make you free!

The Way

Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” John 14:6

I love this Bible verse. For the next few blog posts, I will be talking about this verse and the impact it can have in and on our life. Today I will discuss “the way”.

There seems to be so many thoughts on how to get to Heaven, how to have a relationship with our Heavenly Father and how to live the best life. How can we find the right way? How do we know it is the right way?

We are all lost in this world when we travel on our own. Lost on a dark, bleak highway, lost in sin, pursuing the desires of our flesh. We are lost to a life of joy and peace. Many times we do not even know we are lost…until we discover The Way.

We don’t have to stay lost. Jesus rescues us,

“For the Son of man is come to seek and save those who are lost”. Luke 19:10

Jesus came to earth seeking to save you & me, to give our life direction. To show us the way. To open the way to Heaven. To give our lives meaning and hope.

Are you feeling lost? Jesus came to earth and gave His life to save us from all the wrong ways and show us “the true way.” All you & I have to do is realize we are lost and believe His Word.

Romans 10:9 NKJV
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”.
