The Solid Rock

One of the many lies told by the enemy is that truth is relative. Many believe truth is different for different people, “my truth” or “your truth.” On its face, the very idea of relative truth should be seen for what it truly is-a lie from the very pits of hell. The thought that all of humanity inhabiting God’s creation could live by “their own truth” is absurd at best and destructive at worst. Unfortunately, many have bought into the lie of the enemy hook, line, and sinker.

Truth is NOT relative. Truth comes from God and his truth is the solid rock upon which we must stand; the foundation upon which we are to build our lives. In his high priestly prayer Jesus prayed to the Father, “Sanctify them [disciples] by the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17, CSB; emphasis added). Jesus is asking the Father to set apart the disciples by the truth of what they had been taught. He was asking for the disciples lives to be governed by divine revelation-the Word of God. And thus, the only infallible truth is God’s truth found in God’s Word-the holy Scriptures.

The Word of God is the ultimate truth. When the Word of God takes hold of my heart and your heart, it will transform our lives.

Sing with me…

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness

I dare not trust the sweetest frame

But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand

All other ground is sinking sand,

All other ground is sinking sand. (Edward Mote hymn: “The Solid Rock”)

In Christ,
