Truth

Ahhh. As I sit here in the peace that is nap time, I thought I might share a thought or two. Yes, pics of the fam are coming later.

Truth. I hear all the time that we should “speak the truth in love” to others. What is this truth? For a long time I thought that this meant that if we saw a brother or sister struggling with sin, that we should gently lead them back on the right path (as I hope they would do for me). Yes, this is very important. However, now that we are home from China, I realize how hard Satan worked to try to get us not to go. He whispered so many lies to us, trying to instill fear.

This is where the truth comes in. If I am to be in true relationship with others, the Word of God should be seeping out of my pores. So, when a brother or sister in Christ (or not) shares an issue with me, I can more readily identify the lies of Satan and speak truth (the Word) to them. They do not need my “opinion”. They need God’s Truth! I need God’s Truth!

What if we read the bible every day and did what it said? Seriously. If I proclaim that the bible is true, I should live this way. Why don’t I? If you are a Christian, why don’t you?

Psalm 25:5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You I wait all the day long.

John 8:31-32 … So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in Him, “If You abide in My Word, you are truly My disciples, and You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
