Telling the Truth
Can you imagine going to the doctor for a checkup, and he finds out that you have cancer? But he wants you to like him, so he doesn't tell you that you have cancer, he just tells you you're OK. You walk out of his office totally unaware that you are in serious trouble. Now I don't want to go to a doctor like that. I want to hear the truth. The devil loves to tell lies, especially about spiritual cancer. One of the best ways for him to accomplish this is to fill the pulpits with preachers who preach an “I’m okay, you’re okay” gospel. Listen, everyone is born with spiritual cancer called sin. But, Jesus came to pay for our sins on the cross. We can be set free if we repent of our sins and put our faith in Jesus and Jesus alone. Jesus WANTS to set you free! Now that’s real hope.
