    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

Word 4 U 2day/ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH

  1. ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH

    ‘You desire truth in the inward parts…’
    Psalms 51:6

    The Bible says, ‘…Nor was any deceit in [Christ’s] mouth’ (Isaiah 53:9 NIV). And if God has His way with us, none will be found in ours either. God doesn’t seek to minimise our deception, but to eliminate it altogether. He is blunt about dishonesty. ‘No one who is dishonest will live in my house…’ (Psalms 101:7 NCV).

    Paul lists the types of people who will not inherit the kingdom of God—those who sin sexually, worship idols, get drunk, rob people, and—lie about others (1Corinthians 6:9-10). ‘You mean my fibbing and flattering stir the same heavenly anger as adultery and aggravated assault?’ Apparently so.

    God views fudging on income tax in the same way as He views kneeling before idols. ‘The Lord hates those who tell lies but is pleased with those who keep their promises’ (Proverbs 12:22 NCV). Why the tough stance? Because dishonesty is absolutely contrary to the character of God (Hebrews 6:18). It’s not that God won’t lie, or has chosen not to lie, but that He cannot lie. A dog can’t fly, a bird can’t bark, and God can’t lie.

    When He makes a covenant, He keeps it. When He makes a statement, He means it. When He proclaims the truth, we can believe it. Even, ‘If we are not faithful, [God] remains faithful, because He cannot be false to Himself’ (2 Timothy 2:13 GNT). With God, the truth is not a grey area, it’s black and white. So if you’re serious about walking with Him and pleasing Him, you must commit to ‘the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.’

  2. thank you

    a reminder we all need at all times
    Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life
    there is none other and no other way to live but in Him, forever
    not only when it appeals to men

    a constancy of truth can be called integrity of which we ought strive to master and yet to boast only of Christ and Him crucified, and none or naught of ourselves
    but from Him and through Him and to Him be all glory for ever and ever, amen
