Week beginning: 8th March, 2015

"I am the way and the truth and the life"

John 14:6a (NIV, 1984)

Jesus claims to be 'the truth'. It is clear from his statement that there is no independent truth which exists outside God (Father, Son and Spirit). You cannot ask the question how God or Christianity match up to some independently existing and freestanding truth because God is truth.

Take away absolute truth and you take away the only secure foundation for a system of morality or a legal system. Take away absolute truth and you take away the foundations of society: kingdoms will break up, political systems will fragment, dishonesty will abound and everyone will do as they see fit (Judges 21:25).

As we see so many of these things occuring around us, Christian lawyers must look to God in every situation we deal with as there is no truth outside Him. May God help us to work for truth, for Him, this week in all that we do.

Prayer Points

1. Ask God to guide you in His truth in your work for Him this week.

2. Pray for various LCF meetings throughout the UK over this next month (see below) - that fellow members may be encouraged, and where these are evangelistic events, that responses to the Gospel may be made.
