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!!
