Truth.

This Sunday I’m teaching on TRUTH.  It’ll be the first time in a long time I’ve tried to speak simply to what truth is, why it matters and what that looks like in our lives.

It’ll probably be a lot different than what people would think when they hear there’ll be a sermon on truth.  For much of truth isn’t so much in what is externally real, but to what degree we live or embody truth… how we incarnate truth in our lives.

Truth is certainly in propositions and logical theorems, but it is also in how authentically I relate to God and others.  Truth is certainly objective, but it is also in how I manifest it in my everyday life – the subjectivity of my life.  Truth is certainly about tangible things in front of me and correct beliefs, but it is also about my hopes, fears and desires.

Truth isn’t confined to a box.  Truth is reality.  Truth is external and internal.  Truth is logical and relational.  Truth is now and truth is later.

Truth is a big word.

I’ve been fixated on Psalm 43 as I’ve been wrestling with truth… it’s messy, real, organic, relational, contextual… and yet somehow about truth.

Excited to see where all this goes!!

Psalm 43
Prayer to God in Time of Trouble
 
1 Vindicate me, O God,
And plead my cause against an ungodly nation;
Oh, deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!
2 For You are the God of my strength;
Why do You cast me off?
Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3 Oh, send out Your light and Your truth!
Let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your tabernacle.
4 Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And on the harp I will praise You,
O God, my God.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God;
For I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.
