Fully Truth

Courtroom dramas are interesting. To see the prosecution and the defense craft their cases in such a way as to influence the jury to believe their side of the story. 

As they call witness after witness, the same thing is asked of each one, “Do you solemnly swear that you will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?” The end of that phrase has been modified for those who may not believe in God. Sometimes you might hear, “under the pains and penalties of perjury" or it might just end at “nothing but the truth.”

But what is the truth? For Christians, it’s not a matter of what, but of who. Who is the truth? 

He is the Rock, His work is perfect: for all His ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He. 

Deuteronomy 32:4

14 And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen His glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth. 

John 1:14

Not convinced?

31 Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in Him, “If you continue in My word, you are truly My disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

John 8:31-32

Still not convinced?

Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life…”

John 14:6

Jesus declared Himself as the truth! God is a God who cannot lie. It’s not in God’s nature because God is the God of truth. And truth cannot contradict itself because truth is truth. So, Jesus is the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth, so help us God!

Join us this Sunday as we talk about Jesus being the Truth in the sermon: Fully Truth. See you there!

Prayers and Condolences to the family of Anne Ogle, a long-time member of Green Trails. Anne went home to glory on Thursday morning. Anne Ogle’s Celebration of Life will be on Tuesday, March 12 at 1:00pm at Green Trails. Her funeral and burial will be in Elsberry on Wednesday March 13

Lenten Bible Studies Two Lenten studies are offered at WOW (Wednesdays at 6:30p, meal at 5:45): Forgiveness (taught by Lea Doyel) and Outcasts (taught by Rod Harris). Both are based on books written by Rev. Adam Hamilton. 

The third study that was on Tuesdays at 10:00am has been postponed due to low participation. We will revisit Habakkuk at a later time. I pray that your Lenten studies are thriving and that you are taking the Take 13 Challenge to read your Bible for 13 minutes a day!

Vision for 2024:

A House United: 

Strong Faith, Strong Families, Strong Future!
