Topic: Whatsoever Things Are True

Date: Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Read: Philippians 4:8-9

Philippians 4:8-9 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written: “That You may be justified in Your words, and may overcome when You are judged” (Romans 3:4).

‘Say the truth and put the devil to shame’ is a popular slogan when we want to combat deceptions and lies. It is possible for lies to remain relevant for a while, but the truth will counter it just in the shortest time.

The World is full of philosophies, fables, genealogies and theories, but only God is true and is the Truth. Since the Fall of man, when he fell away and got the image of God in him distorted, man has not been the same again – his pathetic depravity. He is at variance with his Holy and perfect Creator. Evil imaginations, wickedness, deceit and all manners of ungodly attitudes and practices characterise this depraved being. Yet, the righteous and Holy God, who is perfectly true, did not give up on man. Through His Son, Jesus Christ, He still searches for man to get him restored into perfect relationship with Him. Anyone who utilises this offer of redemption is not condemned but adorned with the righteousness and truth of God (1 Cor. 3:19,21).

Truth refers to integrity (holding on firmly to moral values) and sincerity, with no evidence of being hypocritical. This comes by being anchored in Christ, and not by mere attending church programmes alone. It takes dedication to prayer, studying the Scripture, relative communion with Christ and the people of God, and holy living. Nothing can be true except in, and with Christ. Insincerity is rife in our world because so many of us haven’t given Christ His rightful place, including our judicial system, even the Church of God.

1. O Lord, let Your Spirit fill my heart and rid me of all manner of evil and vain thought.
2. Spirit of Christ, cause me to grow and develop, so much that I will be so unrepentantly committed to what is right, just and godly.
3. O Lord, deliver our society from ungodliness, insincerity, deceit, and all evil vices as we are witnessing it today.
