To Tell the Truth

February 12, 2021 Save Article


“Therefore, putting away lying, ‘Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,’ for we are members of one another."

(Ephesians 4:25)


When I was in college, I pastored a little church 130 miles away. One night as I was driving back home, I realized one of my headlights was out. I was hoping I wouldn’t get stopped when a highway patrolman pulled me over.

He said, “Son, did you know one of your headlights is out?” I replied, “One of my headlights is out?” He said, “Son, you’d better get that fixed.” I said, “Yes, sir.”

When I got back in the car, the Holy Spirit said, “Adrian, you lied.” I said, “No, I didn’t lie. I told the truth.” He said, “You lied.” If there is any area in your heart that is not based on truth, you’ve made the devil a home.


I want you to play a game of catch today, but this will only involve one person— you! When temptation urges you to lie, catch yourself, and tell the truth.
