The greatest revelation of truth comes when you are confronted with the proverbial fork in the road. You have the choice to go right or left, but that’s not the revelation, the revelation comes when you understand that you have no idea which way to go. You are forced to consider that there is a higher authority than you, the one who created the road.
We have in our culture this idea that we as a human race can figure anything out, we see movie after movie demonstrating that idea. There is an asteroid approaching the earth and unless we react quickly we will be destroyed. We will find a way, a hero will step forward and somehow stop that asteroid. In the end, the hero saves the day and restores hope in humanity, that where there is a will there is a way.
The truth is, that even though these types of movies give hope that we can figure things out, there are problems every day that we cannot solve. No human hero can step in and save the day for so many across this country, and when that fact is presented to us we can’t believe it, there has to be another way. Our truth message to counter this can be found in John 14:6
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus is our hero, Jesus is the one that can bring light into the darkness, and hope to the hopeless. The gospel is that Jesus came to bear witness to the truth, that’s the good news. The greatest revelation comes when you have no idea what to do, or which way to go because it’s in that moment that you can see Jesus. We need to step out of the way and let Him lead. He is the only one that knows the way because He is THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE.
