Honesty or lies and deception?

truth cry

“Everyone values honesty. We want to see it operating in every sphere of life … in government, the church, the world of business and especially in our own families, friendships, and marriages.

We don’t like being lied to. Jesus gives a grim warning in today’s verse that it’s possible for us to be lied to spiritually, and that some people will be deceived.

If you’re thinking ‘how can I make sure I’m not deceived?’, then notice the warning Jesus gives in verse 5: ‘Watch out’. Watch out… in God’s word.

The Bible powerfully challenges, guides, and keeps us spiritually alert and on the right track. It keeps us wide-awake and equips us to identify ideas and activities that aren’t in line with God’s teaching and character.

As we regularly pray and listen to God through the Bible our relationship with Him will deepen… and we’ll know and love Him better. ‘My sheep listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me… no one can snatch them out of my hand’ (John 10:27-28).

In troubled times, many voices clamour to offer solutions to our problems, sometimes suggesting paths that will draw us away from Jesus, but real peace and security are found by staying close to Him.

We can’t be snatched away from Him, only led astray by ignoring Him and following the sinful desires of our hearts. We must ‘watch out’!

Father, I want to go deeper in my relationship with You, precious friend and lover of my soul. Amen.”
