Therefore, putting away lying, ‘Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,’ for we are members of one another. Ephesians 4:25
My pastor gave a message this week on Ephesians 4:25-32. He titled it “The New You.” I was greatly helped, encouraged, and convicted… all of which are good. I hope it will be good for you, too.
In reference to Ephesians 4:25, he encouraged us to be people of our word and strive for personal integrity. Repentance calls for us to put off, and in this case we’re putting off anything that makes us look deceptive. God is not deceptive, but Satan is, and of course we know he is the father of every lie, even the half-truths, and false excuses which are in fact, lies.
It gives us joy when we please God, and it gives Him joy that we do. Peace with God and God’s peace in us…bliss!
Thankful for HIM,
