“What is truth,” Pilate asked. (John 18:38)
ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS ever asked on earth was asked to Jesus: “WHAT IS TRUTH?” And to imagine that this was asked by a Politician, people generally known to loath the Truth! It must be quite critical.
The TRUTH is not just the FACTS of the matter, which can be addduced and even verified. The Truth is God’s view and interpretation of those facts.
Who sold Joseph to Egypt? His brothers -fact. Psalm 105 says it was God that sent him there -Truth
What happened to Lazarus? Medical fact said death; the Lord said he was sleeping -Truth
There can therefore be no Truth in a matter without God’s word on that matter. And it is The TRUTH that frees and sanctifies us. Facts often drive us to fear, doubt and compromise.
May we learn to live our lives by The TRUTH of God’s word, not just by men’s objective FACTS!
