“Christianity isn’t true because we believe it; it’s true and we believe it. Our faith is anchored to the absolute truth of Scripture and the resurrection of Jesus. So when we approach God, we do so with confident assurance that what the Bible teaches is true.”- Lee Strobel
When our character and thoughts are aligned to the absolute truth of God’s Word we experience the transcending joy talked about throughout the Scriptures. Reading God’s Word is one thing, but transformation comes when we believe what we read and act on that belief. We can fill our heads with knowledge all day, but unless we act on that knowledge, we have nothing but words. Words are not eternal; truth is eternal. John 16:13 tells us, “…the Spirit of Truth is come, He will guide you into all truth…” When we hear the conflicting messages all around us it is easy to become overwhelmed with all the “noise” in our heads. What is truth, what should I do, which direction do I take? Jesus simply tells us to “Continue in My Word…and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32) The world is complicated, Jesus is simple; let’s not complicate what He has made so easy for us. Seek His truth, stay in His Word, and experience the pleasurable joy He created you for.
