 01A.   Man Should Search For The Truth If He Wants To Be Saved


God gifted man with reasoning and intelligence, so it is but natural for him to doubt, inquire and investigate anything that is of his interest. Religion must be one of the things that he must not let go without scrutiny. Religion is not something so inexplicable that it should be avoided, but an essential truth for a man to understand, for the eternal benefit of his soul. 

01A.1   What is this essential truth that all men should understand for the eternal benefit of his soul? 

In 1 Timothy 2:3-4, Apostle Paul made clear the will of God.

 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (NKJV)

God, through His words written in the Bible, wants all men to know of His gracious desire that all men should be saved.  But for man to benefit from God's grace, God's will is for men to to come to the knowledge of the truth. If a person wants to be saved, he must know the truth on how he can be saved.

01A.2   What will this truth do to men, so he can be saved?

In John 8:32, the Lord Jesus said:

"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.'' (John 8:32 NKJV)

Knowing the truth will set man free.

01A.3   From what does man need to be freed?

In John 8:34-36, the Lord Jesus explained further:

Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.  "And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.  "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. (NKJV)

The Lord clarifies that whoever commits sin is slave to sin, therefore, it is from sin that men needs to be freed.

The will of God, is for men to strive to know the truth, so he can be freed from sin if he wants to be saved. Thus, a man who is seeking the truth:

  • must not give up his search easily, even if he finds something hard to comprehend. 
  • must not stop finding the answers to all his religious question from the words of God written in the Bible.   

As man's restlessness in seeking the truth mounts, God will see his earnest effort to find it. God will be pleased, and let him find it.

"And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart." (Jeremiah 29:13, NKJV)

Let us find, uncover or come to know the truth by studying the words of God that are written in the Holy Bible.
