The Absolute Truth

Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; No one comes to the Father but through me." (John 14:6)

One of the biggest lies of Satan and of the lies of the world is, "You're okay. I'm okay. We can make it on our own."

But the truth is that we're not okay without Jesus. The Bible tells us that "there is none righteous, no not one." (Romans 3:10).

Please don't get so tied up with this world and it's alluring things that those things draw you away from God.

Don't get so tied up with what you want that what God wants for you doesn't matter.

This world doesn't have a permanent dwelling place for Christians. We're foreigners here... only passing through. That's the truth.

Jesus said, " I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself; that where I am , there you may be also." (John 14:3)

That sounds to me like He's not going to leave us here. Why would I want what this world has to offer when I'm going to that better place with Jesus someday?

Jesus said it, I believe it, and that settles it for me.

  1. "You're ok. I'm ok. We can make it on our own". Ugh - you are so right! I'm convinced this is one of Satan's top lies. I'm learning that He'll do anything to keep me from really depending on Jesus, because that dependence brings with it a real, authentic, intimate relationship with the Saviour.

    I love your blog - I plan to visit again!
