A Little White Lie?
Please join with us sharing God’s Word daily. We will spend about fifteen minutes a day praying and reading every word in God’s Word in approximately three years1.
“25 Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.” Proverbs 29:25 New King James Version (NKJV).
Today we prayerfully continue our Feast by reading the book of Genesis ; Chapter 26; “Isaac, because of famine, goes to Gerar. (1-5) He denies his wife and is reproved by Abimelech. (6-11) Isaac grows rich, The Philistines’ envy. (12-17) Isaac digs wells God blesses him. (18-25) Abimelech makes a covenant with Isaac. (26-33) Esau’s wives. (34,35) “ – Matthew Henry Concise
We continue our Feast in Genesis 26. Today’s Feast sounds familiar; “6 So Isaac settled in Gerar. 7 When the men of the place asked him about his wife, he said, “She is my sister,” for he feared to say, “My wife,” thinking, “lest the men of the place should kill me because of Rebekah,” because she was attractive in appearance.” Genesis 26:6-7 NKJV. Now is my memory (more than normal) failing me? Didn’t Isaac’s father tell the same little “white lie”? Was this a common lie in these times; “2And Abraham said of Sarah his wife,”She is my sister.” And Abimelech king of Gerar sent and took Sarah.” Genesis 20:2. I don’t think so I think sin is common for man. How serious is a little white lie? Look at it this way it separates man from God and his love. So how does God feel about a sin that little white lie; ”16 These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: 17 A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, 19 A false witness who speaks lies,And one who sows discord among brethren.“ Proverbs 6:16-19 NKJV. There is no little “white lie” it is all sin and God will not abide with sin. There are no short cuts to God, the path is truly narrow. “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 ESV

Can you hear him? Jesus is calling, accept Jesus into your heart? If you hear him calling it’s not too late. Just say this simple prayer; “Dear God, I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sin. I am willing to turn from sin. I now invite Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Saviour.“ If you said this prayer inviting Jesus into your heart, turning from sin, and you need fellowship just as we do. We worship and fellowship in a Church (group of believers) that strive to measures up to God’s Word. You need a Bible believing body of believers (church) to worship and pray with. Our salvation depends completely on God! We are the Saints for whom Jesus sacrificed his life to pay in full for our sin. Our only action is to repent (turn from sin) and accept Jesus. Know this if you sinned the sin that can’t be forgiven, you won’t hear Jesus calling. If you have trouble finding a good bible believing church in your neighborhood send me an email and I’ll see if I can help; email@example.com.
