Friend, I found something that has made my life so much better, and it has given me such reassurance as I try to navigate through the course of this life. I am excited to share with you that I have found truth.
I know that may sound strange. Everyone seems to look at the idea of “truth” differently. But the truth that I have discovered is found definitively in the Bible, and it is unlike anything else you have ever known. Let me share it with you.
First, I found absolute truth. Since the Bible is from God (2 Tim. 3:16), it stands on its own. God’s truth is “settled” or “firmly fixed” in heaven “forever” (Psa. 119:89). Without needing any human corroboration, God’s Word is truth (John 17:17).
Second, I found objective truth. Because of its divine origin, the truth of God’s Word has not been and is not now influenced by personal feelings, opinions prejudice or beliefs. The Bible is truth regardless of anyone’s “private” thoughts, wishes or convictions (2 Pet. 1:20-21).
Third, I found universal truth. It is not limited to a certain segment of society, but God’s truth has been directed toward and has application for every person ever living on earth (Mark 16:15), for it will be the universal, objective standard that will judge all mankind at the end of time (John 12:48).
Fourth, I found enduring truth. God’s truth is not going anywhere. It is not only going to be in existence forever, but it is always going to be truth (1 Pet. 1:22-25; Matt. 24:35).
Fifth, I found unchanging truth. God has “once for all delivered” His truth (Jude 3), meaning it cannot and will not be added to, taken from or modified by anyone (Rev. 22:18-19).
Sixth, I found comprehensive truth. In His Word, God has “given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness” (2 Pet. 1:3). The Bible has all of the answers all in one place (2 Tim. 3:17).
Sixth, I found understandable truth. It is not hidden or mysterious, but God has given man the ability to “know” and to “understand” His truth as revealed in His word (John 8:32; Eph. 3:4; 5:17).
Seventh, I found powerful truth. God’s truth changes lives! This is not some meaningless or inconsequential matter! God’s Word has the power to transform the way one lives on this earth and prepare him for an eternal dwelling with God in heaven (2 Cor. 3:18; 4:16-18; Rom. 1:16).
You are important to me, and I wanted to share what I have found with you. This is not just “some truth” or “a truth” (among many other options), but it is “the truth” of God revealed in His Word! Truly, I can tell you, living with and by God’s truth makes life so much better and so much simpler!
