John 18:28-John 19

Rebecca Lightfoot

TRUTH is an integral part of the Power of Creation,and a significant part of the Foundation of THE LOVE that is ETERNALLY AUTHENTIC.TRUTH is part of the fabric of God’s Character,and a major means that God leverages to express His Awesome Love,His Loving desire for us to have the Eternal Benefits of True Wisdom->TRUTH!Yet,there is something about TRUTH that can make us uncomfortable & cause us to turn away from it.This happens to Pilate when he is questioning Jesus n John18:28-John19:1.Pilate is asking Jesus questions about who He is,& what He is.Pilate is probably curious because of the miracles that he(and everyone else)has heard about Jesus performing;&Pilate has heard what Jesus has been teaching about The Kingdom of God.So Pilate is sincerely curious!Jesus knows what Pilate is most curious about!The same thing that is at the core of ever human being-> there is a CORE CURIOSITY about->WHAT IS TRUTH/WHAT ARE THE TRUTHS ABOUT LIFE?!N John18:37 Jesus addresses this when He says,”You are right n saying I am a king.N fact,for this very reason I was born,& came n2 the world,2 testify 2 the TRUTH.Everyone on the side of TRUTH listens to me”.Jesus offers at the very least a conversation about TRUTH...& something makes Pilate so uncomfortable/uneasy that he says,”What is truth?”,& then turns away from Jesus & goes back to the angry crowd of those wanting to put Jesus to death!Pilat asked the question,but didn’t truly want to hear The Answer(He was not really on the “side of truth”)!Pilate has already framed n his own heart&mind what he WANTED to hear about truth...and didn’t want anything to threaten what might b UNtrue n his paradigms about truth.Pilate’s unwillingness to have his own ideas challenged by TRUTH identified him as one NOT being on the “side of truth”(not sincerely wanting to know what TRUTH really is,if IT might threaten any of his preformed desires&notions).N fact this made Pilate angry enough that he had Jesus flogged...nstead of listening to THE ONE w the TRUE answers about TRUTH,Pilate had Him flogged(John19:1,”Then Pilate had Him flogged.”).I do the same thing n my life when I let my preconceived notions and desires draw me away from seeking to know what Jesus has to say about the things that are AUTHENTIC about “why I am here?”,”what is the purpose for my life”?,”what is TRUE LOVE”?,etc.I become very uncomfortable when I begin to think that some of THE ANSWERS may not agree w MY desires&notions! The SAME PROBLEM Pilate had that made him turn away from THE SOURCE of TRUTH,& even flog Him!Dear Jesus,forgive me from turning away from YOUR LOVE/Your desire for my life to be forever blessed by what is TRUE,and not continue n the direction of deceptive desires&notions that get me lost n a sea of things that are far from TRUTH.Dear Lord,make my heart to b one that will always be on “the side of TRUTH”!
