Today's verses are John 5:33,34: "You sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth. Not that the testimony that I receives is from man, but I say these things so that you may be saved." My child, I came into this world to tell all the truth. Truth. No many people today want to believe there is absolute truth. Many want to make everything relative. Whatever any individual perceives and believes, that is truth to them. No one has the right to impose their view of truth upon another., it is said. Therefore, tolerance becomes the highest of all virtues. Humans are called to tolerate anything and everything, even if it means defining what is evil as good, and good as evil.
John bore witness about me that what I say is true. There is such a thing as absolute truth. Two plus two will always equal four in mathematics. The moon, stars and planets have a set orbit. There is the ebb of flow of the waters, the law of gravity and the speed of light. And in the area of morality, there too is absolute truth.
What I say in my Word is absolute truth. There and there alone will you find ways to be holy, as I am holy. There you find my desire for how to live. There you find what happens when nations, especially Israel, fall prey to everyone doing what is right in their own eyes. They are ultimately destroyed.
You do not have to go the way of nations. You do not have to be destroyed. I came to show you the way home, the way to be saved. My testimony about the truth is not from man. It is not rooted in limited human knowledge. It is from my Father himself, who resides in heaven. I put on human flesh and entered this world to seek and save that which was lost. That was my life's mission statement. That was my reason for being, my purpose for coming to earth. I came so that you would not perish but have eternal life.
Do you believe I am the way, the truth and the life? Do you believe my testimony is from my Father in heaven? Do you believe my teachings give absolute truth, without compromise, about my identity and how you should live? Have you accepted my gift of eternal life? Are you saved from the lies of this world? Do you possess my guarantee of eternal life?
Salvation is a free gift, given by grace through faith. There is nothing you can do to earn it. If there was any work you could perform that could earn this gift, you'd boast about it forever. My Father in heaven, and all the other heavenly hosts and witnesses, would never hear the end of your boasting!
Live by my truth today. Even when the siren cries against my truth come to your ears, live by my truth. My followers walk a narrow road. But it's a road that leads to eternal life, not destruction. Walk it faithfully.
And trust me today.
