Today, the idea of ultimate truth – that something is true all the time in all places and is relevant for our lives, has become extinct. In this present world, the idea of ultimate truth is ranked with fairy tales, judged outdated, or as an insult to human intelligence. When ultimate truth is denied, then you enter the land of “Whatever”.
In the land of Whatever, you do what seems right to you. You search for what gives you pleasure and live for it, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone. You are tolerant and never tell anyone their “whatever” is wrong.
The standards lived by in the land of Whatever are:
In the Word of God, Jesus said He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). He is truth personified. Contrary to walking like the world walks, when we know Jesus as our Saviour and walk according to the Word of God, we walk in truth. “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32 NKJV). God's truth makes us free from the consequences and power of sin.
The apostle John wrote, “For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth” (3 John 3 NKJV). When we walk in God’s truth, we acknowledge it, hate what is sin, and put sin to death by the power of the Holy Spirit in us, Who is the Spirit of truth. Contrary to the world’s way of thinking, the glorious truth of God saves us, liberates us, and transforms us.
As born again Christians, we’re not to live in the land of Whatever, but in the Promised Land of the glorious truth of God and His Word.
In this Blog, I want to share with you some of the things I've learned from many years of following Jesus.
