EMBRACING GOD’s TRUTH

Church goers are still in the dark. How will a lost world ever learn of Jesus Christ and his book of morals when the preachers themselves do not live by the Lord’s Word? -Admin-

You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light. Ephesians 5:8 (NKJV)

Satan is always at work, seeking to blind the minds of men and women. His darkest work is to obscure our lost condition caused by SIN and our need for Jesus Christ as our Savior, Lord, and Life. When he fails in this endeavor, he does not retire. Rather, Satan is operating constantly to cause us to exchange “the truth of God for a lie” (Romans 1:25 NASB). We do so when we allow the wrong thoughts of our childhood years to influence us.

Perhaps you could never please your father. Now you have a difficult time understanding how you can please your heavenly Father.

You exchange the truth of God for a lie when you adopt the distorted cultural views of society rather than the authority of the Scriptures. The world endorses the concept of rights; God talks about responsibility. The world sees sex as a mere physiological function without moral implications; God created sex for pleasure and procreation within the context of marital fidelity.

Is there any area of your past or present life in which you have accepted the lies of others about yourself instead of agreeing with God’s standard of truth about you? If so, embrace God’s truth.
