But whosoever keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we are in Him. 1 John 2:5
In this world it is nothing for someone to tell you a lie. Contractors will knowingly tell you that they will have a project finished by a certain date, and they don’t. Mechanics will tell you one price, and then it is another when the job is finished. Friends will tell you they will help you with something and won’t show up, with no phone call. We have learned not to believe what most people tell us. Unfortunately, some of these people call themselves Christians. This is one of the reasons why so many people don’t want anything to do with Christians. I think the term is hypocrites? We, as the true born again believers, have to understand that our word is the same as Jesus Himself speaking. He abides in us and is with us always. If we are going to call ourselves His children then we need to act like His children. This is a great responsibility that we have been given. Let us honor our Lord and speak the truth, always.
