Here’s the outline for breakfast club tomorrow! And seeing how the three people who read this don’t come to breakfast club… Here ya go!
Faith and Truth
- As humans, we live with what we see. It’s natural for us. There are two sides of natural humanity:
- The dark side
- The light side
The light side is the side when we’re abiding in Christ like John 15 when it becomes natural to abide in Christ like the vine and the branches. Christ’s nature.
There is also the dark side. This is full of our sin nature. It’s like living in the kingdom of self instead of the kingdom of God.
Basically, one is the easy path, one is the narrow path. (Matthew 7:13-14)
In the easy path, we live life without enjoying it. Sure there is pleasure, but it is not a lasting thing. We live sinfully and its like we can’t get on track! This is not how it was meant to be. Life is meant to be abundant.
Here is one way to live life in abundance:
Truth. This truth is something that lightens the heart. Because in our dark side, we like to hide in the dark. But Ephesians 5:9 says,
“(for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)”
To be in the truth is to be in the light and vice versa. Jesus says in John 14:6 that he is the way, the truth, and the light.
So Truth and Light are the same thing.
The narrow way, the whole truth, and the bright light.
So this truth… What is it? Truth is defined as…
- Conformity to fact or actuality.
- A statement proven to be or accepted as true.
- Sincerity; integrity.
- Fidelity to an original or standard.
- Reality; actuality.
- often Truth That which is considered to be the supreme reality and to have the ultimate meaning and value of existence
We want to encourage you guys in the truth this morning!
To live in the truth. To make truth your way!
This truth is something to live in. It’s hard to live in the truth if our natural self (without God). But just try it. Try saying it out loud. We tend to tell the truth to people and humans which is great! But try doing it to God.
Tell Him what is going on in your life. Although he already knows, telling him exactly how you feel and what you’re thinking will not only help clear things up, it will lighten your heart for a life of abundance.
Let me know what you think! Gooodnight.
