What evidence convinces you something is a fact? Do you need to be a witness of it? Will you listen to the testimony of witnesses? Does the reputation of the witness matter? Do you look for signs of truth? Will you throw away the truth if you do not have confirmation?
Getting to the bottom of things can be challenging. We are bombarded with misinformation, half-truths, and outright falsities in today’s culture. We see them on every social media platform, in advertising, and even in our daily news.
We experience partial truths based on partial information. This is not say that all of them are intentionally misleading us. Unfortunately, there are times when we only have a few pieces of information and must make a decision based on what we know at the time. As more information becomes available, we can change our decision based on the new information. Science works in this way. Technological advances cause corporate leadership to continually change decisions.
However, there is a truth we can trust. There is truth that only gets better as we dig deeper into it. We have the Truth Speaker. We have witnesses. We have angels testifying to it. We have miracles that verify it. The truth I am speaking of is the truth of God’s Word—Jesus Christ.
The Hebrew writer speaks of the testimony about Jesus. He speaks of our salvation. He speaks of Jesus announcing it during His ministry on earth. He confirmed it in the signs, wonders, and miracles He performed. The Hebrew writer goes on to state we have witnesses who testified to it after Jesus was resurrected. We have all the evidence we need to put our faith in Him.
I pray we all accept the truth of Jesus. I pray we accept the salvation He offers. I pray each one of us trust the evidence presented, including the signs, wonders, miracles, and witness testimony. Accept the truth. Accept salvation. Trust the evidence. Trust in the miracles. Trust the witnesses. Trust Jesus.
Hebrews 2:2-4 For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.
