How can we discern the truth today in a world of lies and deception? From the first lie in the garden of Eden, man has assumed defying God's word is the best way to control his destiny. From that first lie long ago till this very moment, the opposite has always proven true. Nothing enslaves man like the lies of the world, the flesh, and the devil. Lies, like sin, corrupt our thinking, control our actions, and eventually erode our peace. Worst of all, they can eternally separate us from God and condemn us to an eternity of loneliness, suffering, and shame.
Friends, God has given us free will to ignore, refuse, or to know and embrace the truth even when the truth isn’t what we want to hear. We can't expect to make wise decisions when operating under a lie. Only by abiding in Jesus and his word can we find and know the truth that sets us free from the bondage of deception and sin. The choice is ours! So, seek the truth in God's Word and develop a personal relationship with Jesus. His words to his disciples long ago are his words to all truth seekers today. "If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." Let the liberating truth of God’s word wash over you and set you free!
Onward and Upward,
