Declaring and Discovering the Truth


If a document is completely true
The message remains the same too
It is known for presenting the facts
Not influenced by how others react

An example is a country's declaration
The source of government constitution
Legal and binding contract of that land
It cannot be changed by common man

How much greater then is the Holy Bible
God-breathed, trustworthy and reliable
About 40 writers, over a 1500 year span
One central focus, all by Spirit-led men

Accurate modern translations exist today
With final meaning not changed in any way
Translators are specially trained in this skill
Keeping the original message consistent still

There are paraphrases that help us understand
But they are written from insights of one man
When used along with a well-known translation
They often can be a tool for personal application

There are groups who use their own Bible version
They may offer a very different way of salvation
It is wise to know what and why a person believes
Giving assurance in not easily becoming deceived

So many people today are searching for spirituality
Using various methods to discover individuality
In their quest, they find a path that seems to be right
If it makes sense, they may view it as divine insight

They long to find something for the emptiness inside
A way to escape when tempted to run away and hide
There is only One person, Jesus, who meets that need
Once He enters a person's life, He is a true friend indeed

When a person knows Jesus, there is no other better way
The Holy Spirit gives guidance and direction day by day
Trust God's Word, even when it is hard to clearly see
God always has a definite plan in mind for you and me

Proverbs 14:12 (NIV)
There is a way that seems right to a man,
but in the end it leads to death.
