This posting will be a permanent one.¬† One must answer the question of truth.¬† In answering this question, you will define every aspect of your life.¬† In answering this question, you will discover authenticity or hypocrisy.
I have found that most people have not considered this simple question – “What is your source of truth?”¬† Recently, I spoke at a prison conference with the title “Seek First.”¬† The key to all successful ministries is to first – seek first.¬† The word “first” with the meaning of “first, primary, first thing you do” appears 61 times in the New Testament.¬† It seems Jesus is trying to get our attention.¬† Before we do anything, seek Him first and wait until you secure His approval.¬† When Peter first asked if he could come to Jesus upon the water, he waited until Jesus said come.¬† If he had presumed upon Jesus, more than likely he would have called out saved me much earlier.
The Christians source of truth is Jesus Christ.¬† Our Lord inspired the writings of the Scriptures so that we have a verifiable source of truth.¬† In seeking the answer to any question, can can seek first His Kingdom, His righteousness and then all these things will be added to us.¬† We can study to show ourselves approved unto Him as we accurately handle His Word.
So the question – What is your source of truth?¬† If it is not Jesus and His Word – the Bible – then who or what is your source?¬† If it is not Jesus and His Word, then it is you!¬† That which happened¬†in the days of Noah will happen now – everyone was doing what was right in his own eyes – relativism.
Let us seek Jesus.
