It stopped me in my scroll!
My friend Kathy in Indiana posted this scripture in her Facebook feed a week or so ago. I read it and then had to go back to it. Then, I had to get out my falling apart Bible and look it up.
Being a truth agent, how on earth did I miss this?
It is rather profound, wouldn’t you say?
Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? Galatians 4.16
It’s a risky thing to speak the truth
One may lose friends, readers, subscribers, and followers.
Just ask Jesus. He was the quintessential truth teller. He spoke such hard things that some of his followers turned away. Read about that in John 6.
When asked if they too would turn away, rebel Peter had the guts to say, “Where would we go Lord? You alone hold the words to eternal life.”
In recent months
I’ve been bold to share my personal views – and that has brought a falling away but it’s okay. I am determined to speak God’s truth. And, some of those hard truths are separators. Here are three of those:
There is only one way to heaven – Jesus Christ.
Abortion is never acceptable.
There are several culturally-accepted issues that are abominations to God.
I promised the Lord
Almost thirty years ago I promised the Lord I would write truth, as it is written in God’s Word. I am not about to stop. And, I realize speaking truth has the potential of making enemies – but speak it I must.
My life, my sins are an open book because God’s truth has set me free. No better feeling in the world.
Has His truth set you free?
