How many times have you heard this question? Nearly everyone has a different answer. Some think it is whatever you want it to believe as truth. Others dwell on one thing and push their ideas off on others of what they think truth is. What do you believe truth is? Here are some of the texts to tell us what truth is?
John 8:32 "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." This is what truth does.
John 14:6 "Jesus answered and said, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." We must go through Jesus to find truth, and it might be a good idea to study His life and the way He lived.
Psalm 145:18 "The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth." He will be near to all of us who call upon Him seeking truth.
Matthew 7:7 "Ask, and it will be given unto you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you." This is how you find truth and what it really is. Remember we learned to ask for the filling of the Holy Spirit each day and He has promised us wisdom in our study and we can be sure if we ask for His Spirit it will be given and we will find truth as it is in Jesus.
2 Timothy 3:16 "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." Here is the way to find truth. Search the scriptures, it is a profitable thing to do and be sure when you do, ask God to send His Holy Spirit and fill you so you will find real truth and not someones ideas. That is where we have all gone wrong in believing what someone else has said what truth is and not searching it out for ourselves. God bless you with an infilling of His Holy Spirit as you search out truth for yourself and when you find the real truth, then share it with family and friends and God will bless you immensely.
