“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Christian author, Randy Alcorn writes the following about Jesus as Truth, “(He) is the source of all truth, the embodiment of truth, and therefore the reference point for evaluating all truth-claims.” When we are attacked by Satan’s lies, Jesus grounds us in the reality that is His Truth. He defines it, and He lives it. Jesus is God’s Truth. All He says is true and every aspect of His life demonstrated truth.
Satan, the father of all lies, specializes in twisting truth and casting a shadow on God’s character. The spewing of lies is his character, so we should expect no less from him.
When we keep our eyes on Jesus, we learn to see life through the lens of His reality. In the same way investigators learn to recognize counterfeit currency by studying real bills, the only way to recognize the evil one’s lies is to be intimately acquainted with Truth. Our hearts and minds need to be so filled with Truth that all of life is completely bathed in His presence.
Remember, God’s Word is the sword in our hands when we battle the enemy’s lies. Know His Word…
Dear Jesus, You are the Truth that sets us free. Help us to fill our lives with You and Your words so that we will recognize lies when we see them. Fill us to overflowing with Your Truth, and may the overflow spill into the lives of those around us saturating them with Your love, Your joy, Your hope, and the freedom only You can offer. Amen.
