Truth

As we ponder the state of our nation we are amazed at the lack of integrity and truth telling by those who lead us no matter what their political party.  So often partial truths are told, or details left out that if known would paint a different picture.  Who can we trust?  Thank God , He can be trusted. The word says He cannot lie.  And the good news is that He lives in us who have surrendered our lives to Christ.  As believers in Jesus it is vital that we deal in truth in all things.  Ephesians 4:24 - 25 says and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. Therefore, laying aside Falsehood, speak TRUTH each one of you with his neighbor, for we are members of one another. As the days get darker and the return of the Lord gets closer, deception is going to be the norm in our society. Lets be sure that is not the case in the body of Christ. Brothers and Sisters, be truth tellers. Speak the truth in love. Be open and transparent.  We are to be different than the world.  Remember we represent God and will have to give an account for our words whether they are true or false.  Lets bear good fruit and be sure that we are not participating in the unfruitful deeds of darkness.
Have you been truthful in your dealings with others?  If not, go to them, humble yourself and ask forgiveness and if they are truly believers in Jesus, they will forgive you.  God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
And that is the TRUTH.
Much Love,
Sherry

Thank you for this reminder and challenge. You are so right. Since God is the God of truth, His people are to be truth-tellers.

May His Name be glorified in all the earth. AMEN
