What Is Truth?

cropped-cropped-istock_000026317800medium2.jpgWhat is truth? Great minds have thought about this for thousands of years. Can I make it simple? Jesus is truth. Not ‘a’ truth. Not one truth out of many. Jesus is truth – the person of Christ, the living Word.

Jesus said, “I am the Road, also the Truth, also the Life. No one gets to the Father apart from me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him. You’ve even seen him!” John 14:6-7

Truth is simple. It’s a beautiful door waiting to be opened. Step across the threshold into a new world, a new paradigm where Holy Spirit activates spiritual senses to see and hear. Eyes are opened to see a way that opens up in Christ, challenging us to live beyond the natural chaos. It’s called kingdom and it’s my home, now.

When I look around and see all the chaos, I know that this is not my home. I physically live in this realm but over and over I remind myself that I am seated in heavenly places. In that truth, I move in a new reality in Christ. That is the heart of my message and how I live my life in Christ.

Holy Spirit is with me always, revealing Christ to me in different ways, at different times and in diverse places. Holy Spirit shows me how to navigate the waves that threaten to pull me under into the depths of confusion, fear and worry. I don’t go there. And, if the day starts out less than perfect, I remind myself through prophetic declaration that I live in another reality. I prophesy to myself. I speak life and truth to myself. I prophesy Jesus to ME, through ME and in ME. I don’t forget I am in the world but neither do I forget that I am not of the world.

I feel pain. I face fear. Through it all, my eyes are focused on the temporariness of this life and the eternal reality of my life in Christ. That gives me hope and a future despite what I see and feel around me at any given moment.

The Spirit reveals truth and that truth is Jesus Christ. He’s real and He’s alive. Truth is on the move in every corner of the world. He gives Holy Spirit to me so that I access truth in a world in chaos.

But when the Friend comes, the Spirit of the Truth, he will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is. He won’t draw attention to himself, but will make sense out of what is about to happen and, indeed, out of all that I have done and said. 14 He will honor me; he will take from me and deliver it to you. 15 Everything the Father has is also mine. That is why I’ve said, ‘He takes from me and delivers to you.’ John 16:13-15

Darkness invades my thought life with so many ‘what ifs’. What if I lose my job? What if I have cancer? Fear surrounds me today on all sides and in every way possible. There are a million ways of attack, seeking to paralyze my life in the now instead of the eternal reality of life in Christ.

breaking chainsHowever darkness chooses to take form, there is truth in Christ.

Meditate on this truth.

Truth confronts darkness. Truth displaces darkness.

Almost daily, insecurity, obscurity, insignificance, terror, worry, anxiety or anger tries to invade the safety of my life. TV, social media, radio. The enemy is active. Jesus Himself said he is like a lion seeking whom he may devour. In Christ Jesus there is life and that life flows in direct contradiction to all evil tries to throw at me – security, hope, peace, and rest.

Truth builds strength within me. Christianity is not weak. It is strong. I lose my life to find my life in Christ.

Truth roots itself in and through my life, building a strong belief system. Weaving its way through my DNA forming an identity that rises above the darkness to live in eternal light. Even the smallest glimmer of light displaces the darkness that tries to encroach on my God ordained identity.

What is truth? The person of Christ Jesus. Not a formula, a doctrine, a belief system. A person – Jesus Christ.

    • The simplicity of Jesus in my life is quite complex after the initial introduction. Haha!!! The complexity always lies within me of course as I try to think beyond His leading in my own wisdom, strength. Each day I remind myself, as the simplicity of His voice calls me to walk with Him, that He has it all in the palm of His hand. Y
