From God comes…

From God comes truth.

What is truth? This question has been explored for centuries. When Jesus was brought before Pilate, He told Pilate that He had come to “bear witness to the truth.” Pilate asked, “What is truth?” (John 18:35-38) Pilot did not wait for Jesus’s reply, but he did admit to the Jews that he could find no fault in Christ. Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth.

Many study epistemology, a philosophical area that explores various explanations of truth. However, contrary to what most people think, truth is not public opinion, personal feelings, popular vote, scientific agreement, or a jury’s consensus. Truth is not relative. It is not subjective. People who have “their own truth” have no clue what truth really is.

Believe it or not, truth is what God says it is. God is Ruler, Creator, and Sustainer of all we see. Truth comes from the mind of God. Only He can tell us what truth is because God cannot lie. (Hebrews 6:18) Everything about God cries out TRUTH! His Word is truth. (John 17:17) He is the God of truth. (Psalm 31:5) The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth. (John 14:18) Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. (John 14:6)

Is truth important? I think so. There is power in truth. It can give us wisdom to deal with daily situations. (Psalm 51:6) It can set us free from the bondage of sin. (John 8:32) It is part of the armor of God to help us battle enemies. (Ephesians 6:14) It can transform our lives. (Psalm 25:5) The benefits of truth are endless. 

Those desiring this truth can only get it by knowing God and abiding in His word. Jesus said, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32)

If we want genuine truth, there is only one way to get it—from the source. We must immerse ourselves in a relationship with God and study His word because from God comes truth.


“Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God…”

~James 1:17 (NLT)
