What Is Truth?

Truth is a concept that has been debated for centuries, and it’s no surprise that in today’s world, we often find ourselves confused about what truth really is. There are so many different ideas about what’s true and what’s not, and it can be hard to know what to believe. Moral relativism is a common idea that is thrown around, which says that what is true for one person may not be true for another. This can make it seem like there’s no truth that applies to everyone, which can be quite unsettling.

So What Is Truth, Really?

The Bible sheds some light on the question. When Jesus was talking to His believers, He described why truth is important because of what it can do for us. He said, “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). When we know the truth, we are free from confusion, worry and fear. We are free to live our lives with purpose and meaning, knowing that we are following the path that God has set before us.

But Where Is The Path?

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Jesus is not just one of many paths to truth; He is the only way to find real, lasting truth. This means that when we put our trust in Jesus, we can know for sure that we are on the right path, and we can be confident in what we believe.

How Do I Know This Is True?

The Bible describes what God says like this, “The very essence of your words is truth; all your just regulations will stand forever” (Psalm 119:160). This reinforces the idea that truth is not something that changes with time or society’s values but is something that is forever and unchanging. The truth found in God’s Word is something that we can rely on and trust in. What is true in the Bible is also true in reality.

Many people in society try to bury what they know is right, so it’s important that we hold fast to the truth found in Jesus Christ. Go seek it with an open heart and mind.

Step 1 – God’s Purpose: Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and eternal life—abundant and eternal.

The Bible says:

"We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."
Romans 5:1

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16

"I [Jesus] came that they may have life and have it abundantly."
John 10:10

Why don’t most people have this peace and abundant life that God planned for us to have?

Step 2 – The Problem: Sin Separates Us

God created us in His own image to have an abundant life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him. God gave us a will and freedom of choice. We choose to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God.

The Bible says:

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Romans 3:23

"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23

Our choice results in separation from God. People have tried in many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God...

The Bible says:

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death."
Proverbs 14:12

"But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear."
Isaiah 59:2

No bridge reaches God... except one.

Step 3 – God’s Remedy: The Cross

Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people.

The Bible says:

"For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."
1 Timothy 2:5

"For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that He might bring us to God."
1 Peter 3:18

"But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Romans 5:8

God has provided the only way... Each person must make a choice...

Step 4 – Our Response: Receive Christ

We must trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and receive Him by personal invitation.

The Bible says:

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with Me."
Revelation 3:20

"But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God."
John 1:12

"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
Romans 10:9

Will you receive Jesus Christ right now?

Here is how you can receive Christ:

We suggest a prayer like this one:

"Dear God, I know I am a sinner. I want to turn from my sins, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe He died for my sins and that You raised Him to life. I want Him to come into my heart and to take control of my life. I want to trust Jesus as my Savior and follow Him as my Lord from this day forward. In Jesus' Name, amen."
