Truth. In Greek the word for “truth” is alētheia (ah-lāy-thē-uh).
As a rule, truth is unchanging. If something is true it will be true till the end of time. Circumstances around a truth may change, but truth never will. It is an absolute.
The word of God is truth. It is unchanging. It is an absolute. Circumstances and situations in life may change but God’s word will NEVER change. What was true 2000 years ago is true today. The events of the world has changed in 2000 years but God’s word has not changed. People today experience much of the same things that people have experienced since God first created man – jealousy, lust, anger, hate, love, war – all of these things are still with us today. Circumstances around us have changed over the eons, we’ve progressed, modernized and become more sophisticated in everything we do, yet through it all truth has never faltered or changed.
John 17:17 tells us that His “word is truth” and since truth does not change then God’s word is as true today as it was for Adam, Noah, Abraham, David, Paul, Peter, John and everyone since and in between. By applying truth (the unchanging Word of God) to the situations and experiences in todays world we can know what to do and how to act (or react) and what to say when confronted with any situation we may come up against in our daily lives.
