I AM — The Truth!

Day 2247: Another day to be thankful . . .

Scripture:  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6

Thoughts/questions: After my trip to North Korea, I realized how ‘interesting’ truth can be. Four versions of what happened between 1950 and 1953 were emphatically told at the Chinese Korean War Memorial, the South Korean War Memorial, from our North Korean guides, and from the American soldier at the DMZ. So just what is truth??? And is there truth?

Jesus stated, I am the truth! There is one standard and one alone- Jesus! We may speak about what we believe to be the truth, but He IS the truth. The question then becomes twofold: 1) Can we accept that there is truth? and 2) If there is truth, is Jesus that truth?

It is estimated that there have been 3,000 religious beliefs over the years and all claim some version of truth. That could undermine our faith, but it shouldn’t. If there is God, there can be only one truth – the first commandment – I am the Lord your God, there is no other. If we can’t believe that first one, we may as well throw all the others out.

But the first commandment is true! There is one God; there is truth; it’s name is Jesus!!!

Suggested prayer: Dear Jesus, I can totally depend on You for You are truth . . .
