Lies hurt. Every time. It really doesn’t matter why someone lies to you. You still feel betrayed when you discover that what you thought was true isn’t true at all. The end just doesn’t justify the means.
Too Many Options
It seems like everyone wants to get your attention. They want to tell you what to do. Often they try to bend the truth to convince you that their way is the right way. Is it ever a good idea to deceive someone into doing the right thing?
How can you know which voice is right and which one is wrong? Which voice is Truth and will benefit you the most?
People shout out that you should just follow your heart and do whatever you feel is best. The problem with following that teaching is that there is no consistency. Your feelings change from one minute to the next. Your view on any issue can be swayed with new information, with changing circumstances, or even with your mood.
Finding Your Way
Is there a way you can follow that leads to genuine Truth? Yes! There is absolute Truth and that Truth is found in Jesus Christ.
Jesus said that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and that no one comes to the Father except through Him. The beauty of following God’s advice is that His Truth is the same in every situation, with every individual, and in every season of life.
The Bible says that we all fall short of God’s perfection and that is called sin. The penalty for this is death. But, God does not want us to die for our sin… He wants to be in relationship with us!
“He wants to be in relationship with us!”
Because of his Love for you, Jesus gave His life on the cross so that the penalty of the wrong things you’ve done … your sin … would be paid. Death could not hold Jesus in the grave. He rose on the third day and returned to heaven. This Truth is found in the Bible.
In Jesus, there is Absolute Truth. The question is, will you go your own way or will you give yourself completely to the One who offers you forgiveness and hope for a better life?
It all starts with a simple prayer:
Dear Jesus, I am searching for Truth; genuine, authentic, absolute Truth. I am tired of being deceived and being lied to by the world and people around me. Please forgive me of my sin and bring Truth into my life. I surrender my heart to you and ask that you take control of my life now. Thank you.
