“This truth gives them confidence that they have eternal life, which God—who does not lie—promised them before the world began” (Titus 1:2, NLT).
How do you know if a politician is lying? If his lips are moving. Old joke, but it does come to mind a lot during an election year. The world might stop turning if politicians began telling the truth.
Even if everyone is a liar, and we all are to some extent, either to ourselves or others, God can be counted on to be true (Romans 3:4). We can trust what he says and does because there’s nothing deceitful in him. He couldn’t be otherwise. God is true and his word is true. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life and the Holy Spirit leads us to the Truth. Praise God we can always trust him.
