Today, there are many voices to weigh and discern. Views on where to find truth and who is speaking truth are countless.
After Jesus’s arrest, He explained to the Roman governor, Pilate, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me” (John 18:37).
Earlier in Jesus’s ministry, He taught His disciples, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
The question is, are we truth-seekers? When searching for answers to questions that deal with our eternal destination and how believers should live, I suggest we go to the Word of God, the Holy Bible.
Psalm 86:11 says, “Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.” At the end of verse 10, David proclaims, “(Y)ou alone are God.” King David was known as ‘a man after God’s own heart.’ He was a seeker and worshiper of the one, true God.
Pilate’s response was different. After listening to Jesus, Pilate responded with a curious, “What is truth?” In other words, he chose to ignore and disregard the truth Jesus had specifically shared. He rejected Jesus’s claims as king and Son of God.
On our journey, may we be seekers of truth and as seekers, search out and find truths clearly revealed in Scripture.
May you be blessed as you read God’s Word.
