Honesty With Self
“The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.” Proverbs 12:22 (NIV)
One tells a lie because they are unwilling to be honest with themselves, and will not be honest with others. You can not expect loyalty from a liar, for they are not even loyal to themselves, and certainly unfaithful to the Lord God. Without repentance and the blood of Christ, a liar will not see Heaven because an untrustworthy person risks disharmony among the saints.
Christ’s followers will not spend eternity with evil people, which is why the judgement is as much for the saved as for the unsaved. The same books of record that offer proof of faith in Christ’s righteousness, will show evidence of denial of Christ’s grace.
Let’s pray today for forgiveness from lies and untruths and let’s be faithful to claiming the grace of Calvary.
