Where will the journey for truth lead you?
December 19, 2012
After listening to the king, [the wise men] went on their way. And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.
What is the fundamental question that fuels how we look at the universe? It’s bigger than, “What’s the meaning of life?” And it’s deeper than, “Is there a God?” No, I believe the deepest question our souls long to answer is this: “Why is there something instead of nothing?” And our answer to that question will determine exactly how we look at our universe and ourselves.
So how does a wise man or woman begin to search for answers to that question? By sincere investigation. The magi knew this… and although they worshipped false gods, they had a longing to know the truth. So when they saw the star in the East that directed them toward Bethlehem, they risked life and limb to seek the truth.
More than our presuppositions and assumptions about the universe, we must first begin by asking that same question and sincerely investigating possible answers if we want to discover the truth.
For these magi, it meant traveling to Bethlehem. Maybe for you, it means seriously investigating the claims of the Christian faith. Above all else, our pursuit should be for the truth. And for millions, that pursuit – like the magi’s – has led them straight to the feet of Jesus.
PURSUE TRUTH. YOU MAY BE SURPRISED TO FIND YOUR ANSWERS AT THE FEET OF JESUS.

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
