KEY SCRIPTURE: John 9:22 (KJV) . “These words spake his parents because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.”
The key scripture said that the parents of the healed blind man feared the Pharisees. The Bible says the fear of man brings a snare, but the man who puts his trust in the Lord shall be safe. Many men speak lies because they have the fear of men. The Bible shows us that such actions may have very costly effects over a long time.
Many homes are under the siege of a breakup because there is no trust between the couples. The man hides his telephone calls from his wife, and his wife does the same. The true personality of each other is not known to either partner. All these are motivated by fear. There are men who have fathered other children outside their matrimonial homes, yet their partners have no knowledge or idea. These things tend to devastate the partner who is not in the known. Why be a stranger to your own partner? Why live a life of lies? Many people are seriously deceiving themselves. Please note that you have all the years to yourself to live as a couple. Make each moment you live with your partner, your best days on earth. Open up to your spouse, Genesis 2:25 says ” And they both naked, the man and his wife and were not ashamed.” The scripture literally means Adam and his wife were without clothes, yet they were not ashamed of each other. This verse could be explained that couples must be naked or opened to their spouses.
Remember that living in lies means living under fear. Fear always has a snare. This also means you are living in bondage. Why live in bondage with your spouse when you could throw away all the fear and lies and live in freedom?
Truth is liberty. Truth always builds trust among couples. A couple who speak the truth to each other will have less stress among themselves. They would be happier together and will be making great achievements as a couple. Such couples will have their prayers being answered because they agree with each other.
Dear one, are you living in truth towards your associates or because you fear , you are always telling lies?
Lies on many occasions become a delay of time, for you must live to face the effect of that lie.
I live to tell the truth. I have no fear for any man. The truth always sets me free.
THOUGHT: LYING IS LIKE CASTING DARKNESS ON YOURSELF. IT IS THE TRUTH THAT BREAKS THE DARKNESS.
Eph 4:15 KJV “But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:”
Prov. 29:25 KJV” The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.”
