Okay, so, truth. That is a heavy duty word! I believe we all feel we know the truth about something..... but for today I am talking about spiritual truth. And that makes this word even more profound. Wars have been fought, the mass murder of millions of innocent people have occurred and nations have been threatened or wiped out over spiritual truth. These things are still happening today! And I ask myself, how can anyone believe in a truth that can cause such hurt and destruction? It is not a truth I can comprehend or believe.
But I do know the truth of God. I rest in the truth of His love, mercy, grace and forgiveness. I find the truth in His holy scriptures, the Word speaking to me through time. I find truth in the Holy Trinity, knowing without doubt that God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit works in me and through me.
I know the truth of God because I understand and have experienced these words from Matthew.....
I have built my house (life) on the Rock (God). Many things have tried to knock me off, but the Truth has kept me firmly planted. My greatest joy would be for those who have been battered, bruised and buried in the sand to find the truth in God. That they would believe in His unfailing love, accept His forgiveness and feel the power of His mercy and grace. Because that is the truth!
