Not too many are willing to hear what the truth is. For the truth is something that forces change to anyone who would live by it. I talk of Truth that is not a standard to live by in the collection of values and morals, but rather one who is alive in Jesus. He, the Truth, is pure and contains no error and does not keep company with darkness. When confronted with lies (or darkness) He will either extinguish the darkness (lie) or will stand brightly against the darkness in contrast for there is no neutrality with Truth.
Many who claim they believe Truth, are not willing to look for the Truth, because they settle for what the world calls truth. You can tell who they are because they live changeless lives with no passion for Jesus – the Truth. For when one gets a hold of this Truth it burns in them a fire and they only want more!
When we choose to turn from the truth we will receive judgement – and that is blind eyes, dull of hearing and hard hearts. Many who are those who call themselves believers in Christ – are comprised of such. They are blind leading the blind and will be the ones who order persecution and even death to those who truly follow with no compromise – the Truth, Way & Life.
Truth will always set us free with one condition: We must abide in it. John 8:31-32: Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
We see confusion in our church circles. Much division and debate. This is fruit that the enemy and god of this world has produced. Jesus is not the author of confusion.
For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. 1 Cor 14:33
He speaks with clarity and is always black and white in His way. His road is narrow and few are willing to walk it. Narrow or Wide. Truth or Error. Right or Wrong. Life or Death. Belief or Unbelief. Uncompromised or compromise. It is Satan who brings question to what the truth is and causes there to be grey areas many choose to live in; Gen 3:5-7. When we turn from truth to error we turn from Christ and by default are on dangerous ground. Read: Two Kingdoms – which one do you reside?
To live lives IN CHRIST we must live them purposefully. Every moment of every day must be consecrated. This requires our time, attention and diligence. Not many are willing to commit this and why we have contradiction (and arguments) all around us in our Jesus believing circles.
The Truth in Jesus is combined in grace and this is the gift of God to us and will always compel us to go on with Him. For God only wants one thing from us – a relationship. To obtain such a relationship we must agree with Truth. Let us if we have not already begin a journey to learn what this means. As we draw near to God, He will draw near to us, and when He does we will gladly give up the things that have kept us from Him and only gain strength and more love for Him as we do!
