For we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth. 2 Corinthians 13:8
Truth, for many throughout the world, is something that is considered relative. It depends upon the person, his beliefs, and the circumstances as to what is truth.
With this type of thinking, many are able to do things that are against the truth. There is a common refusal to believe that there is absolute truth and that one may know the absolute truth. As a result, those who believe in an absolute truth are ridiculed and put down.
Paul stated that he cannot do anything against the truth.
Standing for the truth is something that can be very difficult and costly at times. When the majority of those around a person is against the truth, it can hurt to go against the flow and stand for the truth.
One thing that makes a believer unique is that he is following Jesus, who claimed that He IS truth. Everything that Jesus and God has stated in the bible is full and complete truth. The bible has the answer of truth for every situation a person may face in this life.
The world is trying to pitch lies that there is no God, that one can have ‘fun’ and enjoy life without the restrictions God places upon man. Any believer who chooses to believe and follow the ways of the world is choosing the do something against the Truth–Jesus.
Each and every sin that a person may choose to do, is doing something against the truth. It is not living as God had intended one to live.
Although a believer may slip up and sin once in a while, it will not be his intended purpose to do so. He will strive to live as Jesus did and not do anything against Him. He will stand for The Truth.
Going through your life you have choices to make. God has revealed His truth to you in various ways. Now it is your choice as to whether you will live in that truth or live against it.
Knowing God’s word to you, ask yourself if what you are thinking, saying or doing is going against His truth or not.
Make it a conscious choice to not do anything against Jesus. Live your entire life in honor of Jesus because of what He did for you on the cross.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know God’s truth in your life; that you will apply God’s truth to your life; and that you will never do anything against God’s truth.
