Facts v. Truth: Which Do You Believe?
In light of our nation’s current events, it is so easy to look at the chaos happening and not be in a state of shock, bewilderment, or perplexity. “What in the world is going on?” is a common question that is uttered because we remember a time where schools were pretty safe from gun violence, a time when we could freely come and go without face masks, a time when mass shootings weren’t the norm. We can even remember a time when airport security allowed you sit with your loved ones at the gate until they boarded their flight. Life as we knew it was…different. In all of the changes that have occurred, there is one constant that has remained and that is in the person of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
You see, facts are things that can be proven (and are heavily) based on what we can see. Truth, on the other hand shows up in the form of a person and will override what we know as factual. The evidence of this Truth is not always tangible but it does not mean that it does not exist. Facts (because they are based on what is seen) can have the ability to convince us to believe something that is not true but when you know Truth in the form of a person, Jesus Christ (John 14:6), you will be empowered and assured in knowing God has it all (not some, not most but all of it) under control.
The challenge for us as God’s chosen people is to make a decision to believe the facts or the Truth. Facts may say that the world is full of people dying but the Truth is that our Lord has “come to give us life more abundantly” (John 10:10); Facts may be that we are being pressed on every side but the Truth reminds us that “in all things, we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” (Romans 8:37) Facts may say that your bank account doesn’t have enough money to cover your expenses but the Truth says “But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19); Facts may be that you may have messed up and/or you feel unworthy but, Truth says “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1); Truth also says that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalms 139:14); Truth tells us “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jeremiah 29:11); Truth says “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)----Need I say more? Every day will not be easy but the truth will always stand.
