For this reason I have been born, and for this reason I have come into the world, that I should testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice. (John 18:37)   Reflection: Jesus spoke this word to Pontius Pilate when Pilate asked Jesus if he was a king. When Jesus explained the reason God had sent him into the world, which was to testify to the truth, Pilate scoffed, saying, “What is truth?” Pilate…

The Bible on Truth: The Truth Cleans Our Minds – John 17:17

Jesus prayed for his disciples saying, “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” (John 17:17) Reflection: This verse is part of Jesus’ prayer for his disciples right before he was crucified.

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. (John 16:13) Reflection: This word comes to us from Jesus in the upper room. He wanted his disciples to understand the role of the Holy Spirit. God has given his Spirit to us to enlighten us to God’s…
