Help My Doubt

Faith seeking reason- Mark 9:24

VISUAL BIBLE: Fearing the Truth

We have been watching one chapter of John per week in worship. The visual and drama is a nice help for preaching.

This week we watched as Jesus was questioned by the Roman Governor, Pilot. His famous question was, “what is truth?” Such an important and deep question for every generation.

I pointed out some similarities between the many religions in Jesus’ day and the many worldviews of our day. Trying to figure out who is right can be quite confusing. Of course, Jesus claimed to be the Son of God and “the way the truth and the life”. We would do well to clear up the complex by focusing on the truth claims of Jesus.

It can be a fearful experience to face the reality of our sin and God’s future judgment but those are the things Jesus died to rescue us from. Pilot was too afraid of political approval to accept Jesus. I was too afraid of my sins not to accept Jesus. Now I’m not afraid anymore!
