Daily Bible Reading: John 18:24 - 40
Verse of the Day: John 18:38 – “Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find no crime in him.”
“What is truth?” This statement has been described as being a cynical denial to the concept of knowing truth, a quip that it is impossible to know absolute truth, or as a desire to know what no one had been able to explain to Pilate.
People today are seeking truth. They may say that it is impossible to know absolute truth, or that absolute truth does not exist (by the way, making that absolute statement negates the idea being spoken). Yet, deep down, people are looking for truth. They desire that they might find what is really true in a world that often exposes only the fallacies around them. John 14:6 reminds us that Jesus is “The Way, the Truth, and the Life.”
Prayer: Holy Spirit, help me to guide others in the way of finding Truth. Help me help them discover Jesus, the One and Only Truth in the universe. Show me, lead me, guide me. Amen.
