A woman’s red station wagon was crushed by an elephant at a circus.
The owners of the animal apologized, explaining that the animal, for some reason, simply liked to sit on red cars.
In spite of the damage, the woman’s car was still drivable.
But on the way to the garage she was stopped short by an accident involving two other cars just ahead of her.
When the ambulance arrived a few minutes later the attendants took one look at her car, and then ran over to assist her.
“Oh, I wasn’t involved in this accident,” she explained. “An elephant sat on my car.”
The ambulance attendants quickly bundled her off to the hospital for possible shock and head injuries, despite the lady’s vehement protests.
Sometimes the truth is not believed! Many in our culture do not believe in absolute truth, but we need to know the truth about truth.
We read this in Ephesians 4:21 in the Amplified Bible:
“Assuming that you have really heard Him and been taught by Him, as [all] Truth is in Jesus [embodied and personified in Him].”
This verse makes it clear where truth is found.
We have to go no further than Jesus.
The only way we discover truth is through God’s Word because Jesus said in John 17:17:
“Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.”
The truth of the written Word of God, the Bible, will always lead us to the Living Word, Jesus.
He embodies all truth.
This is why as believers in Jesus we need to get to know Him more intimately day-by-day. The devil was walking along with one of his cohorts.
They saw a man ahead of them pick up something shiny.
“What did he find?” asked the cohort.
“A piece of the truth,” the devil replied.
“Doesn’t it bother you that he found a piece of the truth?” asked the cohort.
“No,” said the devil, “I will see to it that he makes a religion out of it.”
Our enemy is a deceiver and a liar; there is no truth in him.
Cling to Jesus! That is the truth about Truth!
