Let each one of you speak Truth with his neighbor.
“Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another.” Ephesians 4:25 (NKJV)
Do You Speak the Truth?
Do You always speak the Truth?
Do you even speak the Truth to your neighbors?
God’s standard for you is always to be truthful in all your dealings.
You have possibly heard the expression of being “economical with the truth.”
That “excuse” is not for you as a Kingdom representative.
As children of God, we are to live and manifest the nature of God.
God is always true.
“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”
Jesus is the Truth.
“Jesus explained, “I am the Way, I am the Truth, and I am the Life. No one comes next to the Father except through union with me. To know me is to know my Father too.” John 14:16(TPT)
How do you relate to your neighbor?
So stop telling lies.
Let us say to our neighbors the Truth.
Again, who is your neighbor?
“Stop lying to each other; tell the truth, for we are parts of each other, and when we lie to each other, we are hurting ourselves.” Ephesians 4:25(TLB)
Everything is not competition.
Live a truthful life.
Literarily people always try to outdo the neighbor.
As a child of God, that’s not your purpose in Life.
Be true to God and yourself.
Stop “packaging “yourself to be what you are not.
“The cravings of the self-life are obvious: Sexual immorality, lustful thoughts, pornography, chasings after things instead of God, manipulating others, hatred of those who get in your Way, senseless arguments, resentment when others are favored, temper tantrums, angry quarrels, only thinking of yourself, being in love with your own opinions, being envious of the blessings of others, murder, uncontrolled addictions, wild parties, and all other similar behavior. Haven’t I already warned you that those who use their “freedom” for these things would not inherit the kingdom realm of God!” Galatians 5:19-21(TPT)
Do you want to make it to heaven?
Speak the Truth.
Embrace truth in all areas of your Life.
Especially to your neighbor.
