I don’t particularly like being lied to. Nor do I particularly like those who lie. I suspect none of us do. Still, in this fallen world it seems more and more rare to come across those who don’t lie regularly.
There was a time before God blessedly saved me when I was quite a skillful liar. I reflect on memories of those days with great sadness, because I’ve seen how hurtful and hateful lies can be. I am deeply grateful that the Lord has shifted me to the opposite end of the spectrum, where I can now sometimes be honest to a fault (if that’s possible)!
In a world full of liars, we can rest in this: Our God does not and cannot lie. To do so would be against His good and holy nature, so we know that all that our Father says is true. This means that His written Word, the Bible, is true in every jot and tittle. This means that, when God says that there is salvation in no one else save Jesus, He is telling us the truth.
I love small reminders of the awesome infallibility and sweet grace of our Savior. I hope reflecting on this brings you some sweet comfort and rest today as well.
With that, what else would we do but turn to our week in review (kind of):
- Yeah, but can you crochet while square dancing?
- I think there are more than three types of legalism, but it’s a fair start.
- I would like to meet Jaelene Hinkle.
- I mean, sure, why should this surprise anyone?
- Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing!
- I would also like to meet Joni Eareckson Tada one day.
- Kevin DeYoung answers the question, “Were the first Christians socialists?”
- This isn’t “dose of adorable” cute, but it’s still pretty cute.
- Here’s your weekly dose of adorable.
- The little things matter.
- Next time someone looks at me sideways for disinfecting my seat on the plane, I’m just going to say, “Naomi Campbell does it.”
- Wow. Parents, take note and take away the screen.
- I was so sad to hear the Reformation Wall in Geneva had been vandalized. I hope it is cleaned up soon!
