“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” (John 17:17)
“If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, for this is the testimony of God that he has borne concerning his Son. Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son. And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” (1 John 5:9–12)
It’s fairly simple—Jesus gives us life. Jesus is the Way , the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. The world denies this and is even hostile to the reality that there is only Truth and One way to salvation. How do you encounter the world’s attempt to suppress the Truth of who Jesus is?
