The Truth

John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” 

Leading up to his death on the cross, Jesus appeared before Pilate, the Roman governor. In the exchange, Jesus said, “Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” To which Pilate responded, “What is truth?” Ironically, Pilate asked the question as the embodiment of truth stood before him.

The word truth describes that which is without error, faultless, perfect. Truth is an indisputable fact, the actual state of the matter. Truth is another word for honesty and integrity. When something or someone is true, you can observe from every angle and find no fault. Jesus personified truth. Jesus was filled with “grace and truth” (John 1:14). Grace and truth actually “came through Jesus” (John 1:17). To say that Jesus is the truth is to say that there is no speck of doubt or hint of question in who he is, what he does, and what he says. Jesus is God! His word is truth (John 17:17).

There are many in today’s culture that people follow and many ideas we believe in. We have all lived with the consequences of broken promises. After debates and speeches, fact-checks show that those running for the highest office in our land do not always tell the truth. Not so with Jesus. When you fact-check Jesus, you find only the truth. Following him, instead of people, results in true freedom. Jesus said, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32).

Lord Jesus,

You are the truth. I can stake my life and eternity on your words. Everything you say is true. You lead me to freedom…now and forever.

In your name, I pray. Amen.
