Truth lasts; lies are here today, gone tomorrow. (Proverbs 12:19)
Elvis Presley reminded us, "Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, it ain't goin' away". Can you see the logic in what he said? Truth is enduring - it isn't here today and gone tomorrow. If we keep in mind that truth is not a 'thing', but rather a 'person', this statement is even more profound. You can shut Christ away for a time, but he 'ain't goin' away'! He is the one who will pursue, no matter how much darkness we create within our lives - his light isn't going to be shut out forever!
We would like to put 'truth' into a category - the truth we will believe quickly and easily accept; while the thing we have a little trouble believing or accepting may not be as easy for us to deal with. Christ is ALL truth - there is no 'believe this' and 'not that' in Christ. It is an ALL or NOTHING faith! You either believe he is the Son of God, came to earth to remedy this issue of sin in our lives, and now sits enthroned at the right hand of God the Father as the Redeemer and King of all mankind or you don't. There is no middle ground on this matter.
Truth is enduring because truth is a person - Christ was, is, and will ever be. He existed before time as we know it, and will exist into eternity, even if we don't believe it. God gives us all time to come to the reality of his mission to have us as part of his family. To be redeemed (permanently set free) of our sins, not looking back, but eyes set on the goal of spending eternity with him. The darkness of sin tries to keep us from seeing this 'Son-light', but despite all attempts to block this truth from humanity, the LIGHT shines through.
If you think the Light of God will ever go away, fizzle out, or just plain leave you alone, think again. There is no way the person of Truth will ever stop being absolute Truth. There will never come a time he will just give up on us. He declares his love for us, pursues us with intent, so as to set us free from all untruth. Today, tomorrow, and into all of eternity - TRUTH remains. Just sayin!
