Sanctify them with truth

In John 17:17, Jesus prayed that we would be sanctified by the truth of God and that we would know that His word is truth. Jesus said in John 14:6, that He was the way, the truth and life.  No person can come to the Father but through Him.  Jesus is the truth.  He has always been and always will be the truth.  When He stood before Pilate and Pilate asked, "what is truth?"  The truth was standing before Pilate.  Truth for many is what they perceive it to be.  Yet the reality is that the only redemptive truth there is, is Jesus Christ.  He is the only way to God and will always be the only way to God.  Jesus was God’s way and God’s idea.  The Lord was well aware of the fact that sin was both an eternal and a man made problem so it would have to be an eternal man who could solve it.  Jesus was God’s answer.  So when faced with this truth we have a decision to make.  Will we accept God’s way or will we not?  The consequences of that decision has eternal consequences.  Today as His people let us spread the message of this truth to those in our world.  Jesus made the way and now we just need to tell others.  We are His ambassadors of truth.  We have been sanctified by it for the Lord’s word is truth.  Remember it is the truth that sets us free.
