article7Know the Truth By: Evangelist Paul Acquah HAVE YOU CONSIDERED KNOWING THE TRUTH? There are many voices everywhere but let me assure you that there is only one voice which is the truth, the word of God. As personal problems increase so do fears increase and nearly everyone’s attention in the world today, is being anxious for tomorrow and finding ways to secure the future. Yet there is one very important thing everyone has to do. What is this important thing that everyone has to consider doing? The leaflet you are holding in your hand provides information about the truth and how to embrace it. Know the truth and be free The truth gives salvation and freedom from sin, Jesus said in John 8:32, And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” It is so important to know the truth because truth is a freedom providing power. Sinners are saved by knowing the truth and believers continue in their faith by also knowing the truth. That is why knowing the truth makes you free so that you will not live in condemnation. What is the truth? The truth is Jesus. Salvation is given by Jesus and the way to eternal life is through Jesus. Jesus said in John 14: 6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Truth is linked with the person of Christ. God wants you to come to the full knowledge of the truth about His son Jesus and believe in Him so you can be saved from your sins. Although, some reject this truth about Jesus, everyone has to do the right thing with Jesus by accepting Him as their personal saviour. If you have not personally trusted Christ for eternal life, then this is the most important decision you can make right now. If you have not heard this before, the message I want to convey to you is, Christ is the king, for He paid the penalty for our sins and by trusting Him you can have His life. Have you considered your eternal life? What will happen to you after you die? The Bible says that it is appointed unto men once to die and after death judgment (Heb 9:27). The human race in its entirety stands guilty before the Almighty God, the only righteous judge. The reason is that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Rom 3:23) Where do you find the truth? Truth is the word of God. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. (John 17:17) God’s word is more important than any media message or human opinion and yet people trust and put their hope in messages from these sources. The Bible is God’s breath, inspired by Him. When you take God’s word you get the truth because God does not lie. This truth will work in your life if you believe it. The truth is that Jesus is the giver of Life, He is the way to eternal life, no one goes to the father except by Him. So what must we do with this truth about Jesus? God has given us the answer to this question by providing us with a gift of right standing before Himself for anyone who wants it. Through His son, Jesus Christ, man is forgiven all his sins. By repenting of your sins and accepting Jesus as your Lord and personal saviour, you can be made righteous and have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) In sharp contrast with the wrong choice of being separated from God and living a life without hope is the Good choice of peace and joy and restoration through Jesus Christ. The most important decision or action to take is to surrender your life to our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. You can do this right now. Pray this prayer below speaking each word out from your heart. Dear Lord: I recognise that I am a sinner and need to be saved. I understand that Jesus died in my place and suffered the judgment of all of my sins. I believe that Jesus rose from the dead and He is at the right hand of the father. Lord Jesus, I surrender my Life to you. Come and Live in my heart and be my Lord and saviour. Thank You for saving me. AMEN! Please contact us if you prayed this prayer. You may also contact us if you need prayers. God Bless You!
