I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. (I John 2:21 NKJV)
Thought for the Week: Referring to the antiChrist, the Apostle Paul does not want to teach the anointed Christians for the first time the truth which was revealed in Christ, but he is writing to them because they know it. As children of God we must approve of and embrace the fact that no false doctrine can proceed from, or agree with, that gospel which we have embraced. In other words, all the doctrines of these antichrists are irreconcilable to it. No false teacher can be a genuine Christian. Because the lie that is taught is not of the truth, so also it has no connection with it. The truth is from God, who is Himself the truth; the lie is from the devil, who is not in the truth.(John 8:44 NIV)
Prayer: Lord, we pray today for a deepening love of You, that would abound more and more in true knowledge and depth of insight, to discern what is best according to Your word and Your will for our lives. We desire Your truth, wherein great wisdom can be found. May we seek You more and more. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
