STAND FOR THE TRUTH

Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds. (Colossians 3:9 NLT)

It is difficult to discern who is telling the truth. People seem to seek their own interests ignoring the interests of their neighbours. Some believers fabricate lies to make money, or to get what they want. They easily forget what Jesus said that “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life [his blessed life in the kingdom of God]? Or what would a man give as an exchange for his [blessed] life [in the kingdom of God]?”(Matthew 16:26 AMP).

The world system is such that Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception. (Psalms 12:2 NIV84). This was how we once lived but now we are in Christ. He is the Truth. Jesus spoke the truth without being intimidated by any man so as His followers, we always have to tell the truth without any intimidation. When Pilate said, “So you are a king?” Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.” (John 18:37 NLT)?. Do not worry about who will be offended when you tell the truth after all it is God you are pleasing not man. If God is for us, who can be against us?
The truth should be the mark of every christian. when people around you are lying to each other, you must let your light shine.

all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)–[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. (Revelation 21:8 AMP)

Hell is the final destination for liars. Therefore do not lie to your neighbour. Be truthful and do not compromise your integrity. Very soon, the King of kings will come for His own. Will He find you truthful? Jesus could come on a day you choose to lie. So when you hold your phone to make calls, say nothing but the truth. when you stand before your congregation, say nothing but the truth. When you meet your business partners, say nothing but the truth. When you are in the midst of friends, say nothing but the truth. Whatever you do, wherever you go, whoever you meet, know that God is watching you and He wants you to say nothing but the truth.

Conclusion;
It is difficult to discern who is telling the truth. The world system is such that Everyone lies to his neighbour. when people around you are lying to each other, you must let your light shine. Jesus spoke the truth without being intimidated by any man. Don’t be concerned about who will offended when you speak the truth. Hell is the final destination for liars. As a result, Whatever you do, wherever you go, whoever you meet, know that God is watching you and He wants you to say nothing but the truth.

God bless you!
