holding on to the truth

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

Jesus said “I am the truth.”  Truth is often seen as a concept.  We read about it in books.  Documentaries are made about historical truth and other truths.  Lectures and sermons are given that have been built on truth.  All of that can be compiled in to libraries and media centers with almost no.

But Jesus said “I am the truth.”  With that phrase truth is seen or known as a person.  Truth is personified.  Trust was or is living and breathing, and as Christians we have come to know that reality.  Living out the truth or with the truth means that we have chosen to follow Jesus on a daily basis.

No, following the truth isn’t always easy, but following and holding tight to truth is always right.  Take some time to hold on to truth, to explore truth, to think about truth and to get to know the truth.

John 8:32  NLT
And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

Knowing Jesus, the truth, sets us free.

Psalm 25:5  NLT
Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you.

God leads us to Jesus, His son who is the truth, and we place our hope in Him.

Psalm 119:160  NLT
The very essence of your words is truth; all your just regulations will stand forever.

He is truth.  He is essence of truth.  The word is truth, and Jesus is the truth.

John 1:14  NLT
So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

He is truth.  God gives us His word which we mistake for words on a page when He intended for the word to live in us and through us.

3 John 1:4  NLT
I could have no greater joy than to hear that my children are following the truth.

Following Jesus, the truth.

John 17:17  NLT
Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth.
