"The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever."
This Saturday we will take a look at Truthfulness as an attribute of God's character
In this world truth seems to be elusive to many. Jesus when replying to Pilate’s interrogation said this “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.” Pilate then asked Jesus, “what is truth?” It is a question that is essential to our lives and for that reason we all need to search and find the truth. Thomas was searching when Jesus told him, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” In this case “no one” simply means no one. Jesus needs to be our source of truth as it is impossible for him to lie but is possible for all other men to lie. We live in a world where truth is relative, and the god of this world is a liar. Jesus provides us a way of escape because He loves us and because He cannot deny Himself. He has given us His Word, which can set us apart from untruth. It is why He prayed this prayer, “Sanctify [set apart] them by Your truth. Your word is truth” (John 17:17). This week will be led by Randy Frank as we focus on God’s Word and His revelation of Himself.
Suggested Bible Memorization Verse:
John 14:6 "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
