What is truth?
How do you determine what is true? It’s an important question because even people who don’t believe there’s any such thing as absolute truth, don’t want to be lied to.
You might find it interesting to know this question was asked by Pontius Pilate on the day Jesus crucifixion. Here’s the exchange from John 18:37-38a:
Pilate: You are a king then!
Jesus: You say that I am a King. In fact, the reason I came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.
Pilate: What is truth?
Are we on the “side of truth”? I’d certainly like to be, wouldn’t you? As we seek to be on the side of truth, this Sunday we’re going to explore Jesus’ truth statement: “My kingdom is not of this world.” (John 18:36).
If this is true, why is it important?
Does Jesus have a kingdom?
Is it in heaven or here?
And if it’s only in heaven, why does He ask us to pray: “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”?
We’ll seek to get to the truth this Sunday as we worship the way, the truth, and the life—King Jesus.
In Christ alone,
