When Jesus was brought before Pontius Pilate, the two of them had an interesting exchange. Upon being questioned, Jesus declared that His purpose in the earth was to testify to the truth. Pilate, being a man of the world, could only respond, “What is truth?”
This is still the way worldly people respond today – as if objective truth is so illusory that no one should even hope to grasp it.
The good news is that you don’t have to be nearly so jaded and cynical as Pilate. You can know the truth. We all can.
Jesus Christ told His disciples just hours before the encounter with Pilate, “I am the truth.” Jesus not only testifies of the truth, He Himself is the truth.
Jesus is our fixed point of reference is a world spinning out of control. He is absolute certainty in this life…and in the one to come. He is its common thread.
Let go of your cynicism and hopelessness. Trust Jesus…and Him alone. Upon Him you can build a solid understanding of truth in this life, for He tells the truth and He is the truth.
