Pilate asked Jesus: “What is truth?” (John 18:38)
And Pilate asked this while he was looking at the One who is Truth.
Who is Truth
God is the God of truth.
He who is blessed in the earth will be blessed by the God of truth; and he who swears in the earth will swear by the God of truth. (Isaiah 65:16)
Jesus Christ is the Truth.
Jesus said “I am … the truth…” (John 14:6)
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth.
When He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth. (John 16:13)
What is Truth
Truth is God’s expression of all He is. Everything God is and does is permeated by Truth. It isn’t just that He speaks the truth, He—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is the truth.
Nothing untrue comes from Him. He cannot lie. (Titus 1:2)
The Bible is the word of truth. (John 17:17)
The works of His hands are truth and justice. (Psalm 111:7–8)
And—there are many, many more illustrations.
Discern and Apply the Truth
We, the children of God, have believed the truth, and are to walk in truth. Our lives are to reflect the God of truth.
To walk in truth, we must discern truth from lie. The devil, by nature and practice, is a liar. (John 8:44)
We must apply the truth to all we think, say, and do, capturing every thought (2 Corinthians 10:5), and walking in His way. (Psalm 86:11)
Learning to walk in truth, is a life-long endeavor. As children of God, we are guided to all truth by the Holy Spirit dwelling in us, and we are prayed for by Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. What a privilege!
Praise the Truth
God, the Truth—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—I praise You for being entirely Truth and for expressing Yourself entirely in truth. God, I am so grateful You are who You are, and that in You there is no compromise, no shifting, no deception. Everything You say and do is permeated by truth, since You cannot do anything less. I praise You for Your Word of truth, for Your indwelling truth, for guiding me to all truth. Help me walk in Your truth, serving You in newness of life.
