Lies · Truth

wondering why… we so often miss the Truth…

I wonder how we miss the Truth…?
He alone… the One True God…?
there is no other…?

We constantly allow others to lord over us… people in general…
fear of man… greater than fear of the Lord…
afraid to say… He is the only Way… the Only God

How do we mistake what’s natural… given at birth…?
for what’s supernatural… received at re-birth…?
the gifts of the Holy Spirit…?

We try to build His church with natural gifts…
directed by our natural self-will…
rather than accepting… receiving… the new… the supernatural…
and use it how He calls us to… according to His will…

Why… do we believe the things of this world… will last…?
when time and time again… year after year… day after day…?
we experience the failure of the temporal…?

There are few things which are eternal… worth investing in…
One is God… who is Eternity Himself…
Two… His Word… which stands forever… because as Eternal… His words don’t pass away…
Three… people… whose souls last forever…

Jesus told us the best way to use our time… spend our days… invest our lives…

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven
and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples
of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe
all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always,
to the end of the age.
Matthew 28:18-20 ESV

But how much time do we really spend…? building relationship with Him…?
Listening to what He says…? obeying His Word…?
And as for people… are we loving them as He calls us to…? reaching out to them with a heart to do what’s best for them…? and not what we can get from them…?

How… can the church… mistake lies… for truth…?

Why…?

Are we not listening…?
Are we not obeying…?
Are we not worshiping…? fearing…? praising…?
Him…?

Maybe we should consider… both as individuals… and as corporate bodies…
who are we listening to…? obeying…?
who or what are we worshiping…? fearing…? praising…?

I believe that if it was Him…
we would not miss the Truth…

“I am the Lord, and there is no other.
I did not speak in secret, in a land of darkness;
I did not say to the offspring of Jacob,
‘Seek me in vain.’ I the Lord speak the truth;
I declare what is right. …”
Isaiah 45:18-19 ESV

Just wondering…
