God Loves the Truth

"He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he." (Deuteronomy 32:4)

Does God ever lie? No, He cannot lie. He is a God of truth and does not sin, so He never says anything that is not true. Everything in His Word is absolutely true.

God wants us to tell the truth, too. Have you ever told a lie? Sometimes we plan ahead of time to tell a lie, maybe to cover a mistake we've made. Maybe your little brother rubs a whole can of red Play-Doh into the carpet because you weren't paying attention when you were babysitting him, so you decide that when your mom gets home, you'll tell her that it happened when you had to go answer the phone.

Other times, lies just sort of slip out when we're under pressure. Maybe your dad asks if you fed the dog, and you say you did – even though you didn't – because you're in the middle of a video game and don't want to stop.

We have all lied about something, and sometimes we don't take those lies seriously. Lying is sin. In fact, the Bible even says that God hates lying. In Proverbs 6, God lists six things He hates. Only one sin is listed twice in that list: lying! God wants us to tell the truth. When we tell a lie, we need to confess our sin to God, and then we need to confess our sin to the person we lied to and tell the truth instead.

God is Truth, and He hates lies.

My Response:
» Have I been telling the truth? Do I need to confess a lie – to God and to the person I lied to?

BIG Christian Word

Conversion - (kon-ver-zhun)

Conversion is an action one makes by repenting and putting their trust in Christ. One must turn from sin (repent) and turn to Christ through faith. (Matthew 11:28-29) "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls."
