God’s Word for Today: False
I always enjoyed true/false questions on tests in school. Even games that simply involve a true or false answer are fun. Maybe it is the fact that one has a 50/50 chance of being correct that wins the appeal.
The photo today could be a simple true or false question. Is this structure you see in the photo going to be a new ride in an amusement park? You might have experienced one of these. A featured “let’s play with gravity” ride where you are locked into a chair, slowly raised a considerable height, and then dropped like a hot potato. Right before your world ends as it meets the earth, you magically bounce back up, only to fall again. Is this a photo of a Double Shot Drop Tower, True or False?
Or, is this the Grand Torch that will be lit for the next Summer Olympic games 2020 in Tokyo, Japan, True or False? Maybe the next Winter Olympic games 2018 in Pyeongchang, South Korea, True or False? Did I have to use Google to find the location of the next 2 Olympics, True or False?
Matthew 24:10-11 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.
This is where the true/false game isn’t fun anymore. There are so very many experiences in this world that are false. Yet, we are constantly fed a mouthful of life that fully convinces us what we chew on, is true. Do we even have that 50/50 chance of choosing what is true over what is false?
Even within our own Christianity, we are constantly challenged with the idea that our way of worship, our choice of Church, our whole belief system, is not in line with God’s plan. False teachers, or whatever you want to call those who test your Faith, are constantly trying to pull us away from the Truth.
I can personally say that in my test of life, I have found several false answers. And maybe, just maybe, because of my Faith, I will eventually live within the realm true to my Creator.
Sometimes, one’s life can turn into a maze of false turns and dead ends. Or, like the Double Shot Drop Tower, you can be constantly falling. Maybe thrilling for a moment, but soon, stability is favored. False fun and adrenaline rushes get old. The stable truth is what everyone eventually seeks.
That is when it is time to give up False and answer True. The True God who gave His Only Son so that you and I could erase our False and answer True. The God who is there every day, all day, forever, just waiting for you to seek His answers. There is no 50/50 chance. God, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the truth, the correct answer, the exact opposite of this false world. Amen and amen…………………….
