Our world is in complete denial of the truth. I think many can agree to this. Many people believers and nonbelievers have buried their heads in the sand and have refused to confront the lie with the truth. Just last Friday, I had the honor of preaching from John 14:6, where Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” For some, this may seem like a very exclusive statement from someone who is supposed to be all inclusive. However, his statement points us to this truth…no one wants to be told there is only one way. We like to think that there are multiple ways to do things; in this instance, coming to the Father.
What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.Matthew 10:27
If you and I believe the lie that there are many roads that lead to heaven, we will be chasing our tails, like a dog chases its tail. We can easily stop the confusion by accepting the truth that is found in Jesus and that is Jesus!
In our culture, where innocence used to be priority, has now taken a back seat. With LGBTQ+ gaining more traction, with drag queens taking over Nickelodeon and Chipotle, our world is being inundated by that which is a lie. The lie is this…you are free to be whoever YOU think you should be. As soon as you buy into this lie, YOU become your own god, and YOU become your own idol. When you and I allow our desires to dictate how we live life, we are deciding and demonstrating, that our ways are better than Gods way. Let me tell you this, you will never experience lasting joy and pleasure outside of walking with the Lord. You will come up empty and unsatisfied, always wanting more of what cannot satisfy you.
So…what do we do with the lies we have been exposed to? We expose the lies with the truth from Gods Word. Jesus said, “whatever I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.” Whatever Jesus tells us is truth, and that truth will put out the flame of the lies around us.
Christian, we cannot sit silent anymore, it is time to speak up with the truth of who Jesus is, what Jesus taught us, and how we are to combat that which is cornering us. Now is the time to say in the light and proclaim on the housetops, this one truth..JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY! Everything else is a lie.
Grace and Peace…
