Truth and Love!


When the wicked one appears, Satan will pretend to work all kinds of miracles, wonders, and signs.  Lost people will be fooled by his evil deeds. They could be saved, but they will refuse to love the truth and accept it.  So God will make sure they are fooled into believing a lie.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-11

I think the word "Truth" should always be capitalized.  According to these verses the reason some will not be saved is that they refused to "love the Truth and accept it."  Truth is much more than just accurate reality.  Jesus said that He was the Truth.  So anytime you touch the Truth, you are coming into contact with Jesus!  That is why those who reject Jesus also embrace lying. 

I think it should be the same for the word "Love."  The Bible says that God is Love.  So when you Love you are experiencing God.  That is why those who reject God are so drawn to hate!  

It is not remarkable that the World "tolerates" every religion imaginable with the exception of Christianity.  Those who follow Jesus are a significant threat to the lifestyle of those who want to pretend that God does not exist. The threat comes not from what Christians might do, but rather simply from who they are. 

Let Truth and Love be a part of this day!  Remember that every time you recognize Truth in any situation you are seeing Jesus and when you Love, even your enemies God is on the scene! 

"Lord Jesus, help me today to be a person of Truth and Love.  Let me see You and the Father in many ways as I seek the Truth in everything and Love even those who don't Love me!  Amen."
