#5525 – Truth Matters

Good morning people who are careful not to drift away from the truth.

Paul writes two letters to the church in Corinth. As always, he encourages them in the truth about Jesus and all that He has done for us. He also corrects some wrong thinking that has crept into the church.

What strikes me is how quickly we as people can drift from the truth.

The church was strongly birthed in an encounter with God. The truth was front and center, and the gospel was resulting in incredible fruit.

And yet it’s not too long after this that certain parts of the church in Corinth had drifted into error, and in some cases, gross sin.

And it can be so in our own lives.

I believe that we are living in a significant time in history.

I believe that Father is restoring so much to the church – to Jesus’ church; to Jesus’ bride.

I believe that part of this is a return to unpolluted truth and to pure holiness.

And therefore, we must not throw out, ignore or water down the many loving rebukes and corrections that come from God’s Word.

We must understand that it is the Father’s love to us as His precious children that compels Him to redirect us through the essential door of humility and repentance.

This is good news! This needs to be celebrated and embraced.

Truth matters – it really does.
