2012 TRUTH – According To God
What is “truth” today according to God? Truth is ONLY seen through God’s eyes. Nothing else matters. Truth is never relative. Truth never changes because God never changes.
In my 33 years as a born again Christian, I have seen much in the Christian life. It has been both productive & counterproductive, and good and bad. When it has been productive, the Holy Spirit was clearly the source of every activity. When it has been counterproductive, either Satan or people’s own flesh has gotten in the way. I sure let my flesh get in the way countless times.
Unfortunately I have noticed many in the Body of Christ easily lose focus on what “truth” is in 2012. They know Jesus is the ONLY “truth,” (John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.”)
When the Christian fails to see life through God’s eyes, truth gets distorted. However, much of their Christian walk shows themselves on the throne and Jesus somewhere on the side.
Politics is the example that comes to mind the most. I know many Christians who are either Republican or Democrat. But, when you see them discuss politics, you can’t tell they are children of the same God. They demean, degrade, and slander people of the opposite party.
I’ve seen born again Christians of the Democratic Party call then President George W Bush demonic or Satan himself. Then, I’ve see born again Christians of the Republican Party call President Barack Obama the exact same thing – demonic or Satan himself. Yet, they will proclaim themselves children of God, but clearly display hatred for their brethren.
All the while Jesus is shamed by this behavior and becomes the laughingstock of the non-Christian world. Jesus’ words are true when He said to the Pharisees, “You are of your father the devil.” (Enough said on politics.)
The Christian is challenged to avoid this poison. The Christian is challenged to get back to basics – Jesus Christ. Get back to basic “truth” – Jesus Christ. The Christian is challenged to let Jesus be seen in him, to let Jesus live His life through him. Christ in the Christian is Whom the world must see. Anything else is a counterfeit to “truth” – a lie of Satan lived through the flesh, sin nature of the Christian.
This is 2012 Truth. CHRIST IN YOU.
