Sabbath Challenge — Day 166

Today’s Scripture: John 18:25-40
[This is the last Sunday on our journey through the gospels. Be prepared to spend some extra time with Him today. Open up your Bible or click the reference above to read online.]

Jesus came to bear witness to the truth of His Kingdom. And everyone who is of the truth, a part of His Kingdom, listens to His voice.

Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born
and for this purpose I have come into the world — to bear witness to the truth.
Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”
John 18:37

God’s voice is only heard by those who are of the truth.

Pilate’s response to the truth is the response of the world: What is truth?

There is truth and it only comes through God: Father, Son, Spirit.
He alone is the source of truth and knows truth.

Those who long for truth, long for Him.
Those who seek truth, hear His voice.

Do you have questions about what’s true and not true?

The world these days says we all make our own truth. But truth by definition is singular, two different “truths” cannot be true. If they contradict each other in any way, one is a lie.

We do not create our own truth. We are not God. He alone set His Kingdom on truth and those who are a part of it listen to Him and know the truth.

Who are you listening to these days? Do you hear His truth? receive it?
Or do you say with Pilate: What is truth?

Lord, I ask today for truth. I ask for ears to hear Your truth and a heart that listens.
Bless me with the discernment to identify the lies of the world
from the Truth of Your Kingdom.

Ask, and it will be given to you…
Matthew 7:7 ESV
Sabbath Challenge:
As you watch, read, or listen to any source of media today, consider if it is true. 
Ask if it is presented from a worldview that accepts truth exists.
Pray as you listen to the different voices of the world: Lord, is this true?
His Kingdom is founded on truth and that is the only kingdom we want to be found in and listen to.
Today’s Sabbath Challenge is one to extend through out the week and beyond…
We do not want to be deceived. His truth is the only place of freedom.
“If you abide in m word, you are truly my disciples,
and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” —Jesus
John 8:31-32 ESV
