Honest answers save.

As a fan of crime shows, the story’s climax happens when someone decides to come forward with the truth, saving the day. False witnesses put innocent people in jail, but truth-tellers save them.

Telling the truth sets people free. However, people who don’t want the facts revealed will do their best to hide them. And sadly, in today’s world, people will ignore the truth, believing lies instead.

“For this purpose, I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” Johne 18:37

People didn’t like Jesus’ truth when He walked the earth, and some don’t like it today. Christ exposed religious leaders and politicians alike, none thrilled with His teachings. But when we pursue the Lord, we find freedom from lies.

Humans lie, but following Jesus helps us discover the truth about ourselves and others. One thing remains the same, everyone sins and needs forgiveness. Christ gives us freedom when we lay our sins on the cross and accept His gift.

Lord, forgive us for telling and believing lies. As we follow You, help us find and focus on the truth. Let us become more like Jesus as we mimic Him in words and actions. We ask for Your blessing and favor on our lives as we move through our days. IJNIP. Amen
