"Truth & Consequence"

1. With truth comes freedom, justice, and righteousness. As we see in Isaiah 59:14, when the truth isn’t present, neither is equity. Many issues in the world prove this principle, as we see lies and injustice practically everywhere we turn. What injustice in the world has God put on your heart? How do you feel called to engage?

2. Confessing Jesus as our Savior doesn’t give us a free pass for the rest of our lives. There are many biblical principles that whether we like it or not, are true, and there will be consequences for following or not following them. Principles like forgiving others, being good stewards, fidelity, integrity, thankfulness, repentance, and more all carry positive and negative consequences depending on how we choose to live. Can you share about a time you received a consequence (either positive or negative) for how you followed a Biblical principle? What lesson did you learn from the experience?

3. Knowing the truth is more than an intellectual exercise. Knowing the truth means recognizing, acknowledging, or having personal experience with it. The difference between intellectual awareness and a personal encounter with the truth is similar to “knowing” who a celebrity is and knowing your spouse or closest friend. To know the truth and to get set free, we must spend time with and in the truth. That’s more than just attending church on Sundays or even Wednesday night Bible study. That’s spending intimate time with God through prayer and reading His word. On a scale of 1 – 10, how are you doing right now in your intimacy with the truth? What could you do to improve that?
“Facts will change but truth will never change”
“He wants you to accept Him”
“God will never rescind what He said about love”
“Confessing Jesus is not a means to an end”
“We want God’s best but don’t want to walk in the truth of the surplus?”
“You cannot be free without the truth”
“When you really know the truth about you, it doesn’t matter what other people say?
