What is Truth? Charley West

Pontius Pilate was the Roman governor who, almost 2,000 years ago, looked into the eyes of Jesus and asked, "What is truth?"

Pilate was talking to the Truth. He was talking to God in the flesh -- the One through whom the worlds were created.

"You will know the truth and the truth will set you free," Jesus had proclaimed. But the truth was not setting Pilate free that day, because he didn't honestly want to know it. So there in his governor's palace, while history held its breath, with Truth standing right in front of him, Pilate still had to ask, perhaps flippantly or perhaps sadly, "What is truth?"

He never knew. The human heart unwilling to submit to the truth will never know the truth.

What About You?

Do you really want to know the Truth? Jesus said to all who are searching, "Seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you." (The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 7, Verse 7). But if you knock on the door looking for truth and Jesus opens it, what will you do? Will you go in to Him or will you turn and walk away? And if you turn away, where will you go? Throughout the ages, in all creation, there is no other truth but Him. Jesus declared it: "I am the way and the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but through me" (The Gospel of John, Chapter 14, Verse 6).

Would you prefer an easier truth? One that makes no demands? You know that in the long run it will be much harder to find out that you have lived a lie all your life than to accept, right now, the simple demands that Jesus makes. Remember, He is compassionate. Patient. Willing to forgive. Jesus says, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light" ( Matt.11: 28-30).
