Seek truth not myths.
When God created humanity, He left us with a restlessness. All of us have a desire to seek the unknown. We have a thirst that only Jesus can quench:
“Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” (John 4:13-14 NIV)
Only Jesus can satisfy the thirst in your soul. Unfortunately, people look everywhere but Jesus for answers. We look to influencers for direction: political leaders, celebrities, sports stars, anyone who appears to have found the answers to a successful life. We lose focus of the fact that this life is temporary. People in the spotlight are painting the picture they want you to see. The struggles and pain they endure are not on the latest social media post. They create a myth that seems true, but in reality is just a house built out of glass. One rock thrown at them by life and their stories shatter.
Jesus doesn’t shatter.
Faith in Jesus means stability. The waves of life will come and go, but Jesus remains constant. His peace is always present and availalbe, but first we have to seek Him. If we don’t search for truth through Jesus, we’ll believe the myths people tell. Only with Jesus can we have a clear vision of the road ahead.
Don’t believe myths. Seek truth in Jesus. Accepting Christ means gaining the Holy Spirit. We find truth following God’s promptings. As we let Jesus guide us, we’ll begin to identify the lies we’ve believed. As we do, we replace them with God’s truth. His truth accents Jesus’s majesty.
Lord, thank You for helping us see the world as it is, fallen and broken. Remind us today of Jesus’s majesty as we seek His truth. Forgive us for so quickly believing the myths of this world. Instead, give us eyes to see, ears to hear the truth. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. In Him, we will experience life to the fullest. All glory is His. IJNIP. Amen
