Words by Joel Gordon

This year’s Historymaker (May
19-21, 2017) theme is TRUTH.
The call is to experience and
to know God personally. It
is also a call to make him
known in every context of life.
Jesus’ message of love, hope,
forgiveness, and wholeness
is for inward change and for
outward impact found in John 8: 32.
In the post-Christian and post-modern
Canadian culture where we find ourselves
living out the gospel, truth has become an
increasing relative concept. Truth for some
is based on their feelings, whatever they
choose it to be, or what is convenient from
season to season.
In the daily search for truth, many seek
truth from whatever the top 10 results on
Google explain about a given topic. It is
important for the next generation to grasp
the need to rely everyday on truth from
God’s word and to live out truth through a
relationship with Jesus that is empowered
by the Holy Spirit.
