Jesus Died For The Truth


 

John 18:36-38 (NCV)
36  Jesus answered, “My kingdom does not belong to this world. If it belonged to this world, my servants would fight so that I would not be given over to the Jews. But my kingdom is from another place.“
37  Pilate said, “So you are a king!“ Jesus answered, “You are the one saying I am a king. This is why I was born and came into the world: to tell people the truth. And everyone who belongs to the truth listens to me.“
38  Pilate said, “What is truth?“ After he said this, he went out to the Jews again and said to them, “I find nothing against this man.

Jesus Died For Grace And The Truth

Jesus is still the most misunderstood in the eyes of the religious and secular world. Why did He come to earth? Why did He leave His seat in glory to come into a “sin sick” world?

For what purpose did He come?

Jesus did not come to establish religions for it was religion that nailed Him to a Roman cross.

Jesus did not come to create a political party for Barabbas the Zealot was freed in exchanged for the Son of God .

In the conversation between the Lord Jesus Christ, Pilate asked the Lord if He was a king. Jesus responded, “that’s what you say”.John 18:37-38 (NCV)
37  Pilate said, “So you are a king!“ Jesus answered, “You are the one saying I am a king. This is why I was born and came into the world: to tell people the truth. And everyone who belongs to the truth listens to me.“
38  Pilate said, “What is truth?

What is truth? Humanity has been busy establishing their own truth to escape the guilt and perverted acts of sin. The simple fact is that there are no “righteous” humans on the planet without the Lord Jesus Christ living in them. Jesus truth says that sin locks people down like a bondage or slavery. Romans 6:12-13 (NCV)
12  So, do not let sin control your life here on earth so that you do what your sinful self wants to do.
13  Do not offer the parts of your body to serve sin, as things to be used in doing evil.e

The truth as it is in the Lord Jesus Christ when obeyed satisfies the justice of God. Romans 6:23 and delivers us from the “slavery of sin.

John 1:17 (BBE)
17  For the law was given through Moses; grace and the true way of life are ours through Jesus Christ. John 8:36 (BBE)
36  If then the son makes you free, you will be truly free.
