Good Morning March 24

Jesus was on trial before Pilate. He had heard Jesus called King of the Jews. Pilate said, “You are a king, then!” Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.” “What is truth?” Pilate asked. (John 18:37-38) That is a question people have always had to ask, what is truth? Whether they are searching out the claims of Jesus as the Son of God, or listening to some political speech. What is truth? We had a man come by church yesterday looking for assistance. He had a long story about his needs. What is truth? We want to believe all people are truthful and of good will, but we have learned far too often that they are not. Discerning the truth takes work. A Christian is taught to err on the side of grace and generosity, but we also know that often this is not the real help that is needed. The question is, are we willing to put in the effort to find the truth. This applies whether we are trying to help an individual, or to learn if Jesus really should be King over our lives. We must do the work necessary to find the truth.
