John 8:32 (NIV) Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Sincerity and truth should always be vitally connected in the lives of people of God. Yet the history of humankind is littered with messages designed not to be truthful but to sound good. It is my humble opinion we need truth in our lives and people that believe and share in truth. What is your truth about God? What is your truth about who you are?
Everyday we encounter individuals who observe our lives to see if we live what we say we believe, so we must commit ourselves to follow after Christ with truth and sincerity. Our greatest message or sermon is the one people can see, yes I mean our lives are what people see before they can or will hear our words! Jesus came to bring Grace and truth to our lives, Are you receiving what Jesus came for? How about living your life with a sense of urgency concerning the Lord?
Point to ponder- The name of Ministry I serve in is called “Grace and Truth” and I knew there was a connection between God’s grace and God’s truth you can see it for yourself in: The Gospel of 9John 1:17) For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. Be mindful we live in a time where people see truth through their own eyes but today I am suggesting there is a truth in the eyes of God! May you find it now.
Honor and love,
Pastor James Baker, Jr.
