Today, Monday, March 21, is day number eleven in the Lenten season. Lent is the period of time during which we can prepare ourselves for the Easter experience.
Man seeks in books and in the thoughts and words of those long gone to find the answers to his present-day dilemma. All the books in the world will not give him the secret of life. For the secret of life is not in a book but in his heart and mind. Not even in the Bible, the best seller of all time, can man find the answer.
The Bible is about the living Truth of God, but this Truth is living in man. It is in all men and women, and this is why it is so difficult to find, for as we look at men and judge from appearances we cannot believe we are all one.
Most of those who are seeking are looking for a secret panel, disregarding the open door. There is no mystery, no secret way, no password. There is but one supreme Truth. This truth was always present in the time of the Bible, when man believed the earth was flat, or in the modern age, when man has seen his earth from outer space.
The one Truth man must know above all lesser truths and facts is that this Truth rises from within him. This is the Truth Jesus spoke of, the Truth, if man could know, would make him free. The question of Pilate echoes down the corridors of time, “What is Truth?”
Truth is that which is true, never changes, rightful, real, without beginning and without end. Truth is the wisdom of God within you. Still the question persists, “What then is Truth?”
In every human form there is an inner power, a causing action, the source of all that is. This power manifest in the outer is man. This power is called God. This power is the open door to the mystery of life. Truth has the same meaning as “troth.” Betroth in its true meaning means “two who are one!”
This is the Truth of every man, every human being. Man is God, he belongs to God; for what is God belongs to God. “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have of God, and you are not your own?” (I Cor. 6:19 RSV) “There are varieties of gifts, but the same spirit . . . and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all in everyone.” (I Cor. 12:4,6 RSV) You yourself are the Truth of God!Understanding is to know the Truth of that which stands under and back of and in and through all we are and do.
