Jesus is the gift who keeps on giving – and one of the things he both gives and embodies is truth.
The world badly needs truth. In fact, The Oxford English Dictionary has named ‘post-truth’ the international word of the year. This is not surprising given that the Brexit vote and US election were enmeshed in what is being called post-truth politics.
God is called the God of truth
In the Bible, God is called the God of truth. The apostle John, in describing Jesus, said, “We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
What more do we want for Christmas than people who will tell us the truth, whether it is in politics or personal life.
Remember – what we celebrate at Christmas is the truth of Jesus – the God of truth, who declares ‘I am the way, the truth and the life’.
