Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ the King

Jesus answered,
For this I was born and for this I came into the world,
to testify to the truth.
Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.

John 18:33-37

"Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice." What a statement Jesus made. What does that say about us. Many who hear his voice are living in the truth, but what about the very many who do not hear his voice. Do they live their lives in the way of truth, or in the way of lies.

Since both Jesus and satan are from the heavens, only one was made man. And only one was going to suffer to redeem us. Jesus came to deliver us from lies, to bring us to the truth.

Lies are not where Jesus comes from or what he delivers to us. How does it feel when we've been lied to. Not good, I'm sure. How about when someone tells you something and you discover later you have been lied to. Your relationship is not the same as it was before. This is how satan continues to cause a rift among the world.

It is the loss of trust for each other, but as we learn in today's reading when we listen to his voice we belong to the truth. It is true too. We have love in a degree that surpasses so very many things. When we live in the truth, we love, we live, we are peace.
Christ is truly King, the king of truth.
