"Speaking the Truth" Eph. 4:25

Seemingly the world is full of lying and deceit and every news story seems to be paraded with the lie. That should be the case towards the end times. There is no respect for the truth in high places of power or even in everyday conversation. Where the lie is there can be no fellowship either in the world or in the church! Paul is describing the new and old man here and admonishes the church "you see the Jews but you know not Christ." We too must know that we have been sanctified in Christ and must live as such as the lie reeks havoc in our lives. We must speak and walk in the truth!

There is no greater temptation than to lie because it is beneficial to the flesh that does not like consequences. Where the lie is you find fellowship with the devil who is the lie. He may find no place in our lives to further the lie however. When you step out of fellowship with the Spirit with the lie you grieve the Spirit who is the Spirit of TRUTH! The lie in our mouth grieves Him! You can understand why the lie reeks havoc....not being able to hold the hand of God and the devil at the same time. Paul uses the word "falsehood" in this passage. We have the word "Sudo" which is fake. Anything that is fake or not reality we must put away. It is a knock off, a fake, not genuine! Paul says put off the fake and put on the truth! Why are we always attracted to the sudo? The knock offs? Because they are easier to get! We tell the lie to deceive for our flesh. The truth is painful. The truth hurts! (especially the truth about me!)

The truth alone enhances fellowship while no relationship can be had on deceitfulness. Wherever the lie is the relationship we have in Christ is broken! To the neighbor I must speak the truth in love. (both in the church and beyond as he is the neighbor.) We stand in the fellowship of Christ and must speak the truth as it is in His word. We speak the truth about God and whatever His word talks about and it extends to the neighbor.

The lie has so many forms it is hard to talk about all of them. The coloring of the truth, partial and half truths, inflection, outright perjury and the list goes on and on. Put them ALL away as they are sudo, not the truth and the whole truth! We do these things sometimes however in our families and to our neighbor. We may not be discouraged in our obligation to the world, but we must also understand that they live in the lie and deceit for the lust of the flesh always. But we learn Christ "having been taught by Him" says the Apostle Paul. He teaches us the truth as it is in Christ Jesus...that we have been saved and stand in HIS fellowship without room for the lie. Can you pray to God when you lie? It interrupts fellowship! We must speak the truth about God and the neighbor as we LIVE in that fellowship with God and one another. To speak the lie we must stand OUTSIDE that fellowship to do it.

In fellowship to the Living God we stand in fellowship with ALL of our relationships. If we make room for the lie, we make place for the devil and it DESTROYS! Speak the truth in love. You can only do that when you TELL THE TRUTH!!!
