The Word is Truth
For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth. (Colossians 1:5-6)
We live in a day and age when it is challenging to trust that everything people say is true. Blogs and social media have packaged untruths so well that it is often quite difficult to tell the difference between fact and fiction. Statistics are proven to be falsified, photos are faked, and even our own eyes can deceive us into believing something that we see is true when in actuality, it is a cleverly disguised lie.
However, the Bible is not just a book full of truths; the Bible itself is truth.
Everything that is true is directly correlated to Scripture.
God told us that His Word is fixed in heaven and will not change. His Word is the final authority to every question in life. God even makes Himself subject to His Word.
You will inevitably come to a point in time where you are searching for the truth about something. Perhaps you’ll be searching for the truth about yourself, or a situation, an issue the world is facing, or even about God and His relationship with you.
When you are on a quest for truth, always go to the Word first. It is not just full of truths; it is the truth.
The only way to understand life, purpose and the future is to look to the one place with no falsehood or manipulation - the Word of God.
Practical Application – Are you searching for answers about something? Do you wonder if what you’ve heard or read is true or not? Pray and search the Word for the solutions that you are seeking.
