Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Many believers, if asked, would say that they love the Lord above any and everything else in their lives. Unfortunately, most of these same people don’t have a true heart to want to seek and know the truth. Jesus is absolute Truth, the one being in all of creation who has never lied or sinned. Most people are content with what they currently know about Him and have no desire to seek Him any further. Why is this? It’s because when come into contact with absolute Truth, any area that does not line up with that Truth will be exposed. You then have decision to make. You can begin changing things to line up with the Truth or you can turn away and continue being who you always were. The problem then becomes that you are living a lie because you’ve seen the Truth and denied it (Him) that place in your life. If you truly, like most believers say they do, love Him more than anything, then you would be willing to embrace Him and leave the lies that you’ve been living behind. The beautiful thing about Jesus is that He is willing and patient enough to walk alongside you through the entire process. He doesn’t force you to change but He knows that when you choose to be more like Him you will experience the same victorious life that He did. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
