Truth = Jesus

My reading today in the Mosaic Bible is speaking about truth. He is telling the christian to search for truth, hear truth, learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth, defend the truth til death.

I wasn’t sure what I would write about this but I was led to my book by Kyle Idleman, Not a Fan and my other book by Lisa Bevere called Girls With Swords. On day 11 Kyle is speaking about a minister who began to have doubts about what he believed in. Kyle goes on to say that knowing all the right answers pale in comparison to knowing the one who said,” I am the Truth.” We know Jesus is truth. Then in my book by Lisa Bevere she talks about how important God’s Word is in our lives. That His Word is powerful and it shouldn’t be changed into anything other than what it says because when you do it loses it’s power. It’s the power of God’s Word that renews our minds. God’s Word is truth. When it begins to renew our mind our thoughts change and then our actions. She also said something I love, she said that God’s living Word is the origin of all the powerful transformative truths. Ultimately, the Truth is not a theory to be debated; He is the Word made flesh – Jesus. John 14:6, Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. There is a vast difference between telling the truth and being the truth!

So in the reading today you could take the word truth and replace it with Jesus. Christian search for Jesus, hear Jesus, learn Jesus’ ways, love Jesus, speak of Jesus, hold Jesus in your heart, defend Jesus until death.

Progress

C.S. Lewis wrote: We all want progress but if you are on the wrong road progress means doing an about- turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

 If your on the wrong road, what you think is progress is really leading you to a dead end.  Kyle Idleman talked about roads that lead to nowhere on the Easter Experience.  Roads that lead to nowhere are ones that don’t include Jesus and ones that don’t put Him first. Only He knows the right road to take, only He knows the directions, only He knows the destination, so why not trust Him? Turn from wrong roads and begin making progress again. Progress in this pilgrimage of Christianity.
