Telling the Truth
Can you imagine going to the doctor for a checkup, and he finds out that you have cancer? He wants you to like him, so he says you are OK. You walk out completely unaware that you are in serious trouble. I want to hear the truth, don’t you? The devil loves to tell lies, especially about salvation. One of the best ways for him to accomplish this is to fill the pulpits with an “I’m okay, you’re okay” gospel. Listen, everyone is born with a spiritual cancer called sin. Jesus came to pay for our sins on the cross. We can be set free from the highway to hell if we repent of our sins and put our faith in Jesus alone. The Bible says, “Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith…” (2 Corinthians 13:5). Do you have a true relationship with Christ? Jesus WANTS to set you free! Now that’s REAL HOPE.
