God’s Truth….Romans 1

bibleDuring my Bible reading recently I came across the following verse- “They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised, Amen”- Romans 1:25. Thinking about this verse got me to thinking about what truths are we exchanging for lies.

The first part of the verse above addresses the fact that we exchange God’s truth for the lies of men and Satan. Each and everyday Christians are confronted with people who push lies and twist of God’s word to make their everyday actions acceptable. We turn a blind eye to the word of God and try to live a politically correct life, by forsaking a Biblically correct life. We need to be careful to remember the truths of God, and not by into the lies of men.

The second part of the verse addresses Gods place in our lives, and how we put other things above him. Sometimes in our busy human lives it is easy to forget that we have a greater purpose.  We place so many things in front of our service to God. I took an inventory of my life to see which things I might be serving in my life other than God, and I felt guilty about what I have found. I spend more time watching TV, than praying. I spend more time on social media than I do reading my Bible. These things are changing, because I need to make God a priority in my life.

It is surprising that one short verse in the Bible can address so many life issues.

Have you exhanged the truth about God for lies?  What are you putting above God in your life?
