Ephesians 4:21

Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus.
(NIV)
The way of Christ is a way that is marked with truth. I am not talking about figurative truth or truth for me, I am talking about real solid truth.

Truth is absolute. Common sense will tell you that. Any child can figure this one out. You don't need to go out and figure out what your own truth is, you need to be a seeker of truth. Truth about existence, truth about eternity, truth about how to live, truth about how to have joy... Be a seeker of truth.

If you believe in Christ, then you are a believer in the Truth, and your seeking should all flow to Him. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, but don't stop with the truth that He came to make a way to God. Seek also His truth about how to live on this earth, how to exist with other human beings, how to bring up your family, how to deal with depression, how to love your enemies and others that have hurt you, how to forgive, how to deal with addictions, how to handle your past, how to control your anger, and so on...

You came to Him in truth, now it is time to live in His truth.
