Now Jesus stood before the governor.
And the governor asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?”
The Bible says, “The entirety of (God’s) word is truth” (Psalm 119:160). God calls on mankind to believe His word, by faith. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). It is wonderful to hear reports that history confirms the reality of Scripture, but all we need is faith in The Word—Jesus Himself.
Face to face, Pontius Pilate confronted Jesus Christ asking, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:37). Truth is timeless. Truth does not differ from one age to another, from one people to another, from one geographical location to another. The great, all-prevailing Truth stands for time and all eternity.
Because truth is unpopular it does not mean that it should not be proclaimed. Mankind is made up of emotional beings but emotions can lie to us and deceive us. When truth is mixed with error there is always compromise. We need to counter our emotions with the pure truth of God’s word.
If our minds and hearts are not filled with God’s truth, something else will take its place: cynicism, occultism, false religions and philosophies, drugs—the list is endless.
It is far better to know God’s truth than to be ignorant of it. While Pilate declared that he found no fault in Jesus (did not believe the accusations against Him), neither is there indication that he ever accepted the truth that Jesus proclaimed. Friends, Do not make the same mistake. If you have never done so before, or if you are unsure, then receive Christ, as your Lord and Saviour today, and God in Heaven will see you through the perfect righteousness of His Son.
Father God, Thank You for Your Word-The Bible, and that Your Word took on flesh in Your own Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
