John 18:37
Pilate replied, "You are king then?"
"You say that I am king, and you are right," Jesus said. "I was born for that purpose. And I came to bring truth to the world. All who love the truth Recognize that what I say is true."

Pondering the difference between people who love truth and people who fear it, this verse, Matthew 10:13-17, came to mind:

"10The disciples came to him and asked, "Why do you speak to the people in parables?"

11He replied, "The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 13This is why I speak to them in parables:
"Though seeing, they do not see;
though hearing, they do not hear or understand. 14In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:
" 'You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.
15For this people's heart has become calloused;
they hardly hear with their ears,
and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts
and turn, and I would heal them.'[a] 16But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. 17For I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it."

How infinitely blessed we are that the eyes of our hearts are no longer blind to God's truth and the reality of Jesus Christ!
