Bread For The Journey


"The Truth shall set you free!" - Jesus
*******************

Truth, crushed to earth, shall rise again,
The eternal years of God are hers
But Error, wounded, writhes with pain,
And dies among his worshippers.
William Cullen Bryant

I read this little poem this week and thought about Pilot's question of Jesus, 
 "What is truth?"
I think it is a question that needs to be asked today.
We live in a time where information is in abundance -- only a mouse click away. 
With everyone's opinion indiscriminatingly published for the world to view, 
it is becoming harder and harder to know what to believe. 
Even the old saying.. "A Picture never lies", has been invalidated by photoshop.

One of my favorite verses is ... 
"Buy the truth and sell it not!" Prov 23:23 
But what truth ?   
There is only one truth that has never been proven wrong,
one truth that has stood the test of time,
one truth that stands when everything else falls.    
And that is God's Truth...   
I used to have a little magnet on my fridge that said ...
 "God said it , I believe it and that settles it for me!" 
A simple philosophy of life, isn't it ?   
But it has never failed anyone who lives by it.  
Jesus, the Word of God, come to us in human form, said...
"I am the way, the TRUTH and the life, 
no man comes to the Father but by me." 
John 14:6

  5. Thank you for today's scriptures and poem. I used that saying once with my Pastor, about if God says it, and he asked me, "If you didn't believe it, would it still be true"? Sure put that is perspective for me. Thanks again

    1. So true, Pat! it would still be true .. whether I believe God or not - BUT it would not change ME if I didn't believe it, right ?
