Truth Is the Most Valued Commodity

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’”

John 14:6

Ponder This

Did you know there is a difference between knowledge and truth? For example, knowledge will double and triple, but genuine truth does not. In school, there is a lot of study of the facts, but there’s a difference between facts and truth. Facts are like a recipe; truth is like a meal. Digest a truth, and it will change your life. God wants us to have truth. Why did God give us the Bible? Jesus said in John 17:17, “Your word is truth.” Why did God send us the Holy Spirit? He’s called in the Bible “the Spirit of truth” (see John 16:13). Why did the Messiah come? He said, “I am . . . the truth” (John 14:6). Why do we have the Church? It is the pillar and the ground of truth. What is the greatest desire for every Christian parent? To echo the words of the Apostle John, “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth” (3 John 1:4).

It’s truth that we need today. Truth is to your spirit what food is to your body, what light is to your eyes, and what sound is to your ears. You only have one short life to live, and in this life you ought to make it your desire, your aim, your burning ambition, to discover, to know, and to practice truth. To know truth is to know God, and to know God is to know truth.

  • What is the difference between having a lot of knowledge about God and being changed by the truth of God?
  • Do you have a hunger to be changed by God’s truth? Why or why not?

Practice This

Spend some time thinking about the things you know about God from His Word. Then consider how you have been changed by that truth.
