We Know God's Truth Through Jesus Christ

“Jesus told him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through Me’” (John 14:6 NLT).

The Bible says that Jesus was full of grace and truth. Truth is not a principle. Truth is a person; truth is Jesus Christ.

One of the clearest and best-known statements by Jesus is, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6 NLT).

Notice Jesus says, “I am the truth . . .” He doesn’t say truth is a religion, or a ritual, or a set of rules and regulations. He says “I.” Truth is a person.

This is what separates Jesus Christ from every other leader of every other faith. Other leaders have said, “I’m looking for the truth” or “I’m teaching the truth” or “I point to the truth” or “I’m a prophet of truth.” Jesus comes and says, “I am the truth.”

A lot of people say, “I think Jesus was just a great teacher.” But he couldn’t be just that: No great teacher would claim to be God if he wasn’t. Either Jesus is conning 2.3 billion people who believe a lie, or Jesus was nuts, or Jesus is who He said He was.

Everybody’s betting their life on something. I’m betting my life that Jesus is who He said He was.

“Jesus told him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known Me, you would know who My Father is. From now on, you do know Him and have seen Him!’” (John 14:6-7 NLT).

What do you do with the truth once you’ve discovered it? Four things:

1. Believe the truth!

2. Do the truth.
Truth is not just an intellectual exercise; it’s something you obey.

3. Stand for the truth. The Bible tells us our responsibility is to never oppose the truth but to stand for it at all times.

4. Spread the truth. The Bible says, “Let everything you do reflect your love of the truth and the fact that you were in dead earnest about it” (Titus 2:7 LB).
