Let’s Speak Some Truth…….

The funny sign above probably describes how almost everyone in America is feeling right now about the state of our country!  Everyone has their own truth and it leads us to say these things to one another:
I’m right and you’re wrong.
I’m worthy and you’re not.
You’re ideas won’t work but mine will!
You’re bad, but I’m good!
You’re not very smart, but I am!
The big question is this; who’s right?
Who can be the authority to settle our disagreement?
For me, the final authority is not a politician, or a college professor, a
scientist, or even a famous movie star or athlete! For me, if there was a God, and I know there is, I will look to Him!
So what did God say to us about who is right and who is wrong!?
He laid it out in Romans 3:23  “Yes, all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious ideal.”
So there you have it, we’re all wrong, we are all sinners and have no right to acuse each other of  being wrong, since, we all are.  Jesus said” He that is without sin, let him cast the first stone.”
The next verse is the great news; Romans 3:24  “yet now God declares us “not guilty” of offending him if we trust in Jesus Christ, who in His kindnss freely takes away our sins.”

 

How does this settle who is right on the myriad of political disagreements we have with one another???!!!  Simple, once you have admitted you are a sinner and asked with true repentance, (sincere regret and remorse), He through the Word and the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth.  It starts with self examination, turning to Him for forgiveness, and then the offering of Grace, (unmerited favor), to your fellow man.

 

 

We can’t go on like this, filled with hate, resentment, unforgiveness, and hostility toward one another.  Any voice that tells you, other wise is leading you astray. Letting those emotions rule us will only lead to terrible things.

 

 

I found another sign that, while not sophisitcated and pristine, it speaks the most powerful truth, that we all need to hear and act upon!  As we are just past the Chrismtas Season, may we allow God to change our hearts, and may we let Him bring Peace on Earth and Good Will to Men.  I’m ready for His better way!

 

 

 

 

I pray that you will ask God to reveal to you His truth, the only truth that matters.

 

Blessings,

    There’s only one response I can make to this: Amen! And bless you for saying what needs to be said (I guess that’s two responses!)
