TRUTH. Everyone thinks their opinion is full of it, when sometimes they’re just… well… full of it. If you are anything like me, you probably aren’t interested in what someone else thinks is the truth. After all, what makes one truth better than another? Throughout time, truth has been shifted, bended, twisted and shaped to suit the agenda of the one proclaiming their so called truth. Sadly, this has turned “truth” into a very subjective variable, leaving no real truth left.
In our overly “PC” society, it’s hard to recognize real truth. The goal has become less about learning and growing and more about how many ways to be offended. There must be a better way. There must be a truth above corruptible truths. There must be… God’s truth. Let’s take a look.
Romans 3:23 says, “For ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”.
But here’s the GOOD NEWS…
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life”.
What does all that mean? Simply put, it means that every single one of us is in need of a savior. God knew that, and so provided. Because Jesus Christ was willing to “pay our fines”, we are now free to focus on His love and plan for our lives.
What Jesus did, He did freely and willingly for YOU. Jesus loves YOU. I don’t have to know who you are or what you’ve done (good or bad), to know that “Jesus loves YOU” is the truth. If it weren’t truth, He wouldn’t have… couldn’t have said it in His Word. God so loved YOU that He gave Jesus Christ to pave YOUR way to Him. All that is required of you is to receive the gift. That’s grace. That’s Jesus.
It really is that simple. Some people, whether well-meaning or just plain mean, have complicated things to the point of scaring and scarring people with their version of “truth”. God’s truth simply states that He loves you. So receive it. Period.
Say yes to what Jesus offers you. Pray often. Listen as you feel God’s Holy Spirit nudging and guiding you. Share with others what you experience. I promise, your life will never be the same… And you wouldn’t want it any other way.
God bless you!
