I fear the concept of truth has been taking hits for many years. We confuse opinion with truth. We have to form opinions – it is in our nature, but I think we need to be careful about the basis for our opinions.
One thing I know for sure is that Jesus, Who is God, came to earth to be born as a baby. He grew up to die to save us from our sins. Many in the world today do not know the truth of Jesus. This has caused us to be at war with each other. If we were to focus on and cling to Jesus Christ, we could stop the warring. Jesus is the only way to peace.
I enjoy Christmas songs that remind us of this truth. One is the song “Glorious Light” by Keith & Kristyn Getty and Ian Hannah.
Glorious light! see the dawn of Salvation:
Angels in white fill the skies with their wondrous song;
Awakening earth with news of His birth;
Join the hymn of the highest heavens!
Long has the world fought the song of the angels.
Heavenly music is drowned by a warring world;
Yet hope burns a light, that shatters the night;
Turn your heart to the call of glory!
Glory to God in the highest!Keith & Kristyn Getty and Ian Hannah
Peace to men on earth.
Come and adore Him with wonder –
Christ Lord of Heaven and earth.
As I have said before, I pray you know Jesus. He is the only way to have peace and joy.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Jesus. Thank You for the beautiful music many have written about Your Son. Please open eyes to the truth of Who Jesus truly is. Please help me to be an instrument of that truth.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
