Transcript

2017 has been a year characterised by division, sadly with many acts of intolerance and hatred.

But among these have been some acts of  outstanding love and care and bravery.

We find ourselves asking questions to try to make sense of living in such a divided world.

Questions that we want to know the truth about.
Why do people commit terror attacks?
What damage are we doing to our planet?
Why weren't more precautions taken?
Will people be held to account?
Why does North Korea keep testing missiles?
Will a deal be made?

The questions we ask ourselves, about the world around us reflect a longing for truth. In our post truth age rife with fake news maybe we're realising that we shouldn't ignore truth.

Actually we do care about truth. About truth being revealed.
We care about freedom. And truth is the thing that liberates. Truth is the thing that unites.

So who do we trust to tell us the truth when those we rely on often let us down?
We need someone we can definitely trust.

We're searching for someone who tells the truth and does what they say. Someone who genuinely puts others first, who challenges injustice and deals with the mess and pain of this world. Someone who does all these things all the time.

But is there anyone in human history like that? Well have you found anyone or are you still searching? What if we've missed the obvious?

What about Jesus? What if truth came searching for us? Jesus said "I am the way the truth and the life"

That's a big claim. What's the evidence?
Well Jesus spoke out for those who were mistreated.
He loved the outcast.
He treated people fairly.
He confronted hypocrisy.
He amazed people with his wisdom and teaching.
He miraculously healed people.
He had power over nature.
He told the truth even when it cost him his life.
He offered forgiveness to those who crucified him.
And he said he'd rise from the dead and he did.

The truth about who we are and why we're here is worth finding out. This new year why not make a different kind of resolution?

Why not resolve to search out the truth about Jesus whatever it takes, until you find it?
