You Can’t Handle The Truth


You may think that you can’t talk to someone about God because you don’t have all the answers. That’s ok. You don’t need to know all the answers. Someone who needs to know all the answers needs to know everything before they can believe it. That’s not faith. God calls every person to come to Him through faith. It’s by grace THROUGH FAITH that we are saved.

I wonder if you ever stopped to think that if you talk to someone about what Jesus has done in your life and they ask a billion questions and you tell them you simply don’t know, if this will somehow spark an interest in their heart to think they you don’t need to know everything to follow Jesus.

Some people have to know everything yet I guarantee they believed a lot more when they were in school without know all the details they needed to pass a test. Yet when it comes to God folks think they have to understand all the inner details about a God who can’t be contained in a book (John 21:25) nor can He be contained by nature nor can we ever know everything there is to know about him (Isaiah 55:8-9).

I think it’s ok not to know all there is to know about God. Know why? Because we can’t know all there is to know. And I’m ok with that.
