“Your Law is Truth” #1015

Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your law is truth. (Psalm 119:142, NKJV)

In this post-modern world, where men and women take the unjustifiable liberty of redefining truth to be relative, shifting and changing, God’s eternal truth continues to be absolute. It is the one supreme law that governs and judges us all. Just as there is “no variation or shadow of turning” of God’s righteousness, neither is the variability in the nature of truth (cf. Jas. 1:17). Whether one speaks of the law He gave specifically to Israel (the Old Testament law), or the law of Christ, the accuracy and certainty of His rule is firmly established. This gives Christians assurance as we live in a “post-truth world,” where truth is minimized as emotions shape public opinion, moral excesses and even religious faith. God’s truth is not shifting sand. The sayings of Jesus are truth, and when we believe and do them, we build our life a solid foundation that lasts into eternity (Matt. 7:24-27).
