Thanksgiving for Truth

You could hopefully list many different things for which you are thankful this Thanksgiving week, but I want to give you one: the truth. If someone were to watch a half hour of news, chaos might come to mind. The world is gripped by it. Conflict abounds as religious, philosophical, and political systems collide. Moral, social, and economic problems multiply but solutions are scarce. The political process is drifting rudderless on a sea of confusion. Life is questions and no answers without a concrete guideline or standard by which to judge good and bad, right and wrong. The suppression of truth exacts a tremendous price.

Thanks be to God, you and I have an eternal, objective, incontestable, irrevocable standard we can depend on for all matters of life. From the truth of scripture we can understand what’s going on in life better than all the educators, philosophers, politicians, and social pundits combined. God's Word offers us a window on the real issues people battle. We know how to be good employees, to love our spouses, to raise our families, to truly love our neighbors. Meaning in life is not a question, it's a fact. I thank God for revealing His truth to us and for allowing me the privilege of studying and teaching it.

The church is the pillar and ground of the truth, so the church stands on and also revolves around the truth. Within a true church is the certain knowledge of the truth to base everything in our lives – not opinion, but truth.
