THEME: SEEK THE TRUTH
Ephesians 5: 6 “Let no one deceive you with empty words.”
Dear believer, there are many wolves in sheep’s clothing prowling around on earth.
As Christians, we especially have to be alert and watchful in the light of the truth of God’s Word. Many false prophets or ‘prophets of pretence’ are on the uprise and are deceiving many of God’s followers. People with fame and popularity are being followed and imitated instead of Christ and the truth of His Word.
Also, Satan is the father of lies and deceit. As believers, we need to realize that our enemy can lie to us and deceive us. This is why, praise God, Jesus sent us His precious Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth! Whatever information we receive, we must test it according to God’s Word and we must ask the Holy Spirit for direction and discernment.
I also want to highlight the fact that God does not want us to be deceived by the talk of other people. Talk is cheap. Jesus said that a tree is known by its fruit; what its life produces.
A lot of people say the right things, but their hearts are not in the right place. We need to be careful to just gullibly believe what people say. We need to ask the Holy Spirit to expose the lies and the deceiving methods of people and Satan to us. He sure will! Seek the truth, my friend. Do not rest until you have found it. It will set you free!
“Heavenly Father, we need Your Spirit every day to give us discernment, wisdom and direction. Help us not to be gullible and na+?ve, but to test what we hear – even the thoughts we receive. Make us on our guard and give us a watchful spirit so that the enemy might not gain territory in our minds, hearts or lives through lies and deceit. We ask this in the name of our Lord and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.”
