Well in some cases, the truth does not hurt, but when it comes to Jesus being the truth, there is no harm in it!

Will you be a slave?

The Truth does not Hurt.
Memory Text: 2 John 1:3; John 8:44; Matthew 11:28

Have you ever heard of the phrase, the Truth hurts? People often ay the truth hurts but then what is it that hurts so much? Is the problem handling it, or it being said out loud. No think about it. It may hurt to hear, but what harm does it cause ? Truth is define to be “reality”, “actuality” and also “not deceitful” (Webster, Dictionary.com)
With all these definitions, we can add them all up together and it already sums up Christ and His character. Jesus was our perfect example, living on earth for a temporary time showing us how to be in and by the truth. He did this even around deceitful people. You wonder. How did He do this? By having a relationship with God. Like how we have a relationship with our friends, we constantly talk to them and each time we do, we begin to trust them more and more. It is the same with Christ. By following the laws each day under His control and power. All of this can help us live a life like Christ. So Jesus lived in the truth.

“And Jesus said, I am the way, the truth and the life; NO man cometh unto the Father but by me” ( John 14:6). So this already answer our question. What is the truth, or who is the truth. And that is Christ Jesus.

Now we know if something is not true it is automatically fake. John 8:44 states “…He ( the devil) was a murderer from the beginning, and abode ( means to dwell in) not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, He speaketh of His own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” Now we know that once the Word of God speaks, it speaks in truth. And if it is said for the devil to be a liar, than it is true. But what proof do we have that shows that the devil is a liar? Let us begin.

Now the verse we just said, Jesus himself said it when He was speaketh with the Jews that were questioning Him. We have already established that Jesus is the truth so we know that this is true. Also in Genesis three, we can read about the same devil and His deception, where he lead Eve into eating the fruit of life and death. Not only was it his 1st deception, but because both Adam and Eve fell, the world is now corrupted with sin.
Another deception that I can speak on is my personal life/testimony. The devil has not succeeded in trying to harm me, because I am here today meaning I still have time, I don’t know how long, but I will cherish this time to carry on with Christ work. In the doctor’s eyes, my birth was impossible because a woman could not perform more than three C- section but yet I was a fourth one. And I believe that was the work of my God.

Now my question for you is are you living in the truth, do you have the truth, or you’re a benchwarmer on this earth ? ( a benchwarmer is someone that does not play in the game but usually comes in for emergency of back-up) It is your choice to be what you want to be. I want to live in the truth while having the truth. Having the truth is never enough, it must be engraved in our hearts.

My friends how can the truth hurt if Jesus is the truth? Does He cause us pain? No He gives us peace. In Matthew 11:28, it says “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Where is the hurt in that ? Let us come forward to the truth and abode in it. It does not hurt.
