"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (NIV) John 8:32

The question “What is truth?” is often asked by sincere seekers of truth. Pilate, himself asked Jesus this same question, although he wasn’t seeking an answer to his query. (John 18:38). This question is so important that our eternal souls depend upon our seeking & finding the correct answer to it. (John 6:68). I am afraid that most people believe that there are many “truths” out there concerning spiritual matters rather than only “God’s Truth.” There has to a standard by which mankind must follow. Jehovah God set forth that standard long ago. The Psalmist tells us, “Forever O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.” (Psalm 119:89).

In John 1:14-17, we read, “And the Word was made flesh, & dwelt among us (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace & truth. … For the Law was given by Moses, but grace & truth came by Jesus Christ.” Where does one find truth? Can truth be obtained? Can truth be understood by all who seek & find it? Absolutely! The Scriptures are abundantly clear on this matter! Truth can be found & understood by all sincere seekers!

In John 8:32, Jesus stated, “And ye shall know the truth, & the truth shall make you free.” This is as clear as can be! Every sincere heart can know what is truth & that truth (of Christ) shall make them free. Again, Jesus speaking said, “Sanctify them in truth; thy word is truth.” (John 17:17). How is one sanctified according to the Lord? First let me define the term “sanctification.” According to Webster, “Sanctify” means “to make or declare holy; consecrate; to free from sin; to make legitimate or binding by religious sanction.” Simply stated it means to “set apart from the world.” Therefore, every single person, who sins, must be sanctified! And this sanctification can only come through knowing God’s truth! Jesus saves us through His precious blood!
