Live and Speak the Truth

by Chris Russell
My Big Fat Mouth week three message from Pastor Chris Russell on February 25, 2018 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana. Throughout this series we have been talking about the power of our words. We have been reminded that our words have the power to give life and they have the power to take life. Jesus tells us that we speak from the overflow of our hearts. So everything that comes out reflects something that is going on at a deeper level inside of us. And if you are like me at all with the words you use, we have to recognize that sometimes we just do a horrible job of reflecting the faith we profess to have and the savior we claim to represent. This week we are going to focus on the topic of lying. How many of you have ever lied before? Those of you that didn't raise your hand, you picked a bad week to not participate. How many of you think you may have lied in the last 72 hours at some point? Everybody who didn't have their hands up on the last question should have your hands up now. Proverbs 12:22 Ephesians 4:21 John 8:44 The Enemy's Plan: Get You Speaking His Language Get You to Lie to Yourself Live a Lie 1 John 2:4 1 John 1:9 James 5:16 Where are you at with lying? *some of you are carrying a lie right now *some of you might be lying to yourselves right now about something in life *some of you might be living a lie, thinking you are a Christian when the evidence just doesn't support it The enemy of our souls is a liar and there's nothing he wants more than you to follow in his footsteps. He wants to ruin your life, he wants to pull you away from God, he wants to lead you to a place of hopelessness and fear. But thanks be to God we have Jesus Christ, who is the source of all hope and redemption. Seek him for forgiveness for living a lie and talk with those who love you and love God so that you might find true healing and start down a path of great hope and restoration. The truth will set you free.
