Truth and Fiction

Man holding Bible

Some years ago I heard about a clergyman who had a friend who was an actor. The actor was drawing large crowds of people, and the clergyman was preaching to a few in the church. He said to his actor friend, “Why is it that you draw great crowds, and I have no audience at all? Your words are sheer fiction, and mine are unchangeable truth.” The actor’s reply was quite simple. “I present my fiction as though it were truth; you present your truth as though it were fiction.” I fear that so often we Christians give the idea that the truth is fiction by the way we live and by the lack of dedication to the teachings of our Lord.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, I would completely yield my life to You, so that others may know that the Savior I love and serve is the truth!

    Surrender to The Lord is wonderful. When I feel out of sorts I love playing I surrender by Hillsong on YouTube it brings me home. Setting my heart and mind on Jesus a safe place to be.

    Sometimes our life become the only bible that some people ever read. So live the truth as the truth with dedication to the teachings of our Lord.

    As we handle and divide the truth let us the Holy Spirit for revelation and utterance to discharge the WORD in the right language,style, and methodology.

    If we say we love God , we ought to practice what we preach . The unsaved are watching our example.
