TREASURE TRUTH:LIVE A HAPPY LIFE.
Psalm 34:12-13(ERV) Do you want to enjoy life? Do you want to have many happy days? Then avoid saying anything hurtful, and never let a lie come out of your mouth.
The fact that Christianity is a real and all times relevant life is something that majority of men and women (including those in church) are yet to grasp. As such there no longer exists among many a clearly defined difference between them that are of faith and them that are of the world. However it ought not to be so seeing we belong to the Life-Light.
For example you hear statements such as, “every man/woman lies once in a while e.t.c” which is true for the nonbelievers but outrightly out of order concerning the church of Jesus Christ. Remember,The church is the voice and arm of God in this present world. So saying that the saint should lie would translate to God lying which is impossible. Hear Hebrews 06:18b(Nkjv).
Our lead verse further cements this fact by plainly defining the life of the saint; it’s a truth-full life and one saturated with life-imparting talk at all times. Hallelujah!
Beloved, you may have struggled with telling the truth and even given excuses for the ’small’ lies in the day. This day the Lord wills to see you shunning that life and embracing your true life which is one dominated by truth and sound talk. Hallelujah!
FURTHER STUDY: EPHESIANS 05:04(AMPC), Let there be no filthiness (obscenity, indecency) nor foolish and sinful (silly and corrupt) talk, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting or becoming; but instead voice thankfulness [to God].
The life of the saint; it’s a truth-full life and one saturated with life-imparting talk at all times.
