Truth Matters

Truth matters. It really does.

When the difficult things of life come across our path.
When the trying and heart-wrenching things happen.
Even in the times when all is well.
It makes all the difference to where we will
spend eternity ~ either in Heaven or Hell.
We must have our Theology firmly established.
Our moorings and footing must be firmly planted on the Rock.

The Solid Rock ~ Christ Jesus.

He alone is where all peace and lasting comfort are found.
He alone is the way to be made right with God.
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."  John 14:6

The LORD Jesus Christ.  Alone.

Not long ago, we traversed through such a trial.  Rough waters.
The deepest valley we have ever known.
And, for times such as these, we are so thankful that 
we know our God is Sovereign.  To know that HE does all things well.
For our good and for HIS glory.  In the depth of our souls.  Always.

How precious is HIS Word!  How precious is HIS Truth!
How wonderful it is to have access to it in the Bible.
And to have the Holy Spirit to seal it to our hearts.

The Bible is so deep and rich and full.  It alone is where absolute and
incorruptible Truth may be found.  The teachings of wise men are fallible.
They are prone to error.  They may even be known to change their minds.

But, God's Word cannot change.

It is infallible. Inerrant.  Within its pages, by God's mercy and grace,
the One and Only Living God of Heaven and Earth is revealed to us.
How Wonderful our Precious Saviour is!!
HE never leaves us.  Never forsakes.  Always Faithful.

Are you searching?  Do you desire to know God?
Do you yearn for Truth in the deepest part of your being?
Flee to the LORD Jesus Christ.
Run to Him with your sin and your corruption.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."  Romans 3:23

He alone is able to make you right with God.
He alone is able to free you from your sin.
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

Only after dealing with the problem of sin are we able to find peace with God.
And because of the Lord Jesus Christ, and his perfect work, we can confidently come.
"All that the Father giveth me shall come to me;
and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."  John 6:37

Lasting peace. Eternal peace.
Comfort that only HE can give.
And rest. Rest for our souls.  In HIM.

May the Lord be found of you.
And may you know Him as He is meant to be known.
His ways are perfect. His ways are best. Always.
This I know because it's contained in His Word.
That's where Truth may be found.

"Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me,
and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me,
and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
And I will be found of you, saith the LORD..."  Jeremiah 29:12-14a

If you are searching, simply ask the Lord to reveal
Himself to you as you read His Word.
Begin in the book of Genesis and read the first
three chapters ~ they show why we need a Saviour.
Then, skip to the New Testament, and read the book
of John to learn of all that the Lord Jesus Christ
did for His people while He was on the earth.

of what it means to follow the LORD Jesus Christ.

"Bible Doctrines Simply Explainedis a wonderful little book that lays out the
Truths of God's Word in an easy to read fashion.
(Click on the book title to find used copies for purchase).
Be sure to measure everything you read against the inspired Word of God ~
The Bible is the only book of its kind.
It is the only inspired word of the Living God.

I will be praying for you.
