Pastor’s Ponderings

   August 5, 2018

  “Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart…” Both old and new testaments make clear that there is only one foundation to a relationship with God. Truth will lead us to that one foundation-God’s amazing grace. While the world sings the siren’s song of tolerance, we must hold fast to the way that leads to the one true God! Only in His truth can we find the path to true righteousness.

 “No one calls for justice, nor…plead(s) for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; they conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.” We live in a world that increasingly disconnects from the truth. There is a basic denial of natural truth in order to undermine the structures of a moral society. They wish to move away from consequences in order to remove the idea of judgment. It is ultimately a resistance to God’s holiness and a basic desire to remake the world as they see fit. There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death. His is the way of truth!

“Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk inn Your truth;unite my heart to fear Your name.” One of our chief desires should be for God’s truth to permeate our souls. Truth is a prerequisite for our hearts to be single in purpose. The concept of a unified heart is one that is not wavering between two opnions, or two sets of values. God’s word will act as a preservative when we receive it with humility. Our desire must be for God to teach us His ways. We cannot be that which He wants us to be without the knowledge of His truth. True freedom in life comes from walking in truth.
