Jesus never once shied away from the truth or the fate set before Him for His life based on that truth. John 18:37 says, “You are like a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.” It seems to me that even Pilate recognized Jesus was telling him the truth. Unfortunately, it also seems as though Pilate chose to reject the truth. When we reject the truth and choose to follow our own desires, we fail. We must always look to the truth and act according to what is real and what is right.
