Have you ever thought to yourself, how dare these Christians claim that their truth is better than my truth? How dare they try to impose their outdated morality on me? If so, you wouldn’t be the first.
Don’t you hate it when people shove their ideas down your throat and tell you how to think? But there’s this one thing that I need to get off my chest, right now so humour me.
Throughout history, the way people have thought about things has changed. Once upon a time, philosophers, theologians and indeed, ordinary people like you and me, were in search for “the truth”. They reasoned that if they could find it, it would make their lives better. Not at all unreasonable.
But these days we’ve rejected the notion of absolute truth. Your truth is your truth, my truth is my truth, and if your truth works for you, go for it. That’s the way we think. And that’s why what I’m about to say may be a difficult pill for some to swallow.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Truth is that God loves you so much, that He sent His Son Jesus to die on that cross for you to pay the price of your sin.
And that same Jesus said, “I am the only way to God. There is no other way.” Full stop, end of story. I know it may be hard, but that’s the truth.
Right now you have the opportunity to trust Jesus, to have a relationship with Him, to let Him take the junk out of your life. But one day, you won’t have that opportunity anymore. Either you’ll have taken it here and now, or lost it for ever.
It’s your decision.
That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
