It seems as if, in the last month, there has been such a flurry of posts that I cannot keep up with them. Thus, I can see where mine would get lost in the mix, especially as to what is normal for me, my posts are always a bit unorthodox. My question does not entail a scholarly response as opposed to a personal one.
My wife and I own a lodge and every year we have international students that we employ. Some have returned yearly for the past 5 years. There are 8 of them representing 5 countries with a variety from one Christian to 2 atheists and everything in between. We have a meal weekly and follow it up with a study from the International Students Inc that starts with the creation and leads into Jesus. The study includes Americans as well who are across the board spiritually. It has evoked many engrossing conversations.
A few weeks back, as we discussed Truth, one asked me why I knew that Jesus was the Truth. In my explanation as to how the Lord dealt with me in a way unique only to me as He would individually to each one, I explained to them how He communicated to me in a way that I knew He was the Truth over and above the rationality aspects. It made me wonder how other Christians would respond to that and has led me to ask you that question. If someone asks you how you KNOW that Jesus is the Truth, given that we can speak of the rationality of it all, how was it that Jesus made it plain to you in a personal way that He was the Way, the Truth and the Life?
I’m not asking you the question to add to my ammo pile of comebacks but rather, was very interested to hear how the many and various ways that our personal Savior got through to you. I’d love to hear as I think that we would all be surprised as how He worked it out in a way that would never work for others.
