There is only one Truth that remains unchanging, as we read in Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Thankfully so, since from birth to death our lives are marked by constant change.

That is why we need to be anchored on the unshakeable foundations of God and the Bible. The Scriptures tell us that since the nature of man’s sin also has not changed, the truth of the Word of God is relevant for all mankind throughout history.

Several years ago my wife and I took a cross-country train ride in a sleeper car from Tacoma, Wash., to Boston. For several days I observed the miles of track before us and I realized how important it was to remain on course toward the destination. If a train gets off the track, it means something went deadly wrong.

The spiritual lesson I got from the trip was very simple. Like the train that runs on a one-way track toward the destination, our lives were meant to run on the one-way track of Jesus without derailment or detour.

After the Apostle Paul’s conversion, he lived this way, as he was able to proclaim toward the end of his life, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

John Bunyan, too, wrote “The Pilgrim’s Progress,” an allegory of the perilous journey of faith. Despite many temptations, Christian is able to make his way toward the goal of the Celestial City. Though we are weak, if we stay on course with Jesus, He is able to lead and guide us. Jesus is the only way, the truth, and the life.
