Joe Friday would be pulling his hair out right about now. It seems like trying to get the facts in this world is nearly impossible. Who can we trust? Who's telling us the truth? Where can I go to get the facts? In this world, I'm not sure it exists, but praise the Lord we have His Word!!
The bible is the only place I know I can go to get the facts! It is the only place I can be sure to get the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. The Bible is where it's at.
In reality, we should be "fact checking" everything with it all the time. The world says "All you have to do is follow your heart", but the Bible tells me that "my heart is deceitful and wicked and that I can't even know it" Jeremiah 17:9. The world says "truth is relative", but the Bible tells me that "Jesus is the way, THE TRUTH and the life, and no one comes to Father but by Him" John 14:6.
This world is lying to you. And this is what we should expect from it since "the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one" 1 John 5:19. Don't get tripped up. Don't get discouraged. I know it's hard to tell what is true these days. It's hard to see through the lies and get to the truth, but we have His word and His word is truth.
The Bible needs to be to "a lamp to our feet and a light to our path" Psalms 119:105.
But how can it be unless you read it? How will you use His word to fact check unless you know it?
It has never been more important than today, for us to be people of His word. Christian: Get in His word today. Read it tomorrow. Open your bible every day. Make it a priority. Make provision for it. Make time to get in the bible for "All Scripture is God breathed and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that you may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work" 2 Timothy 3:16-17
