Truth can set you free only if you’re bold enough to use the Key


Truth cannot remain suppressed. Truth always rises to the top. With time, truth will always be revealed.

There are no perfect people. There are no perfect Christians. We all make mistakes. Although we make continuous strides toward perfection, perfection is a destination none of us will ever reach. 

Although sin is alive and well, what’s more important is what we do about the sin in our lives.

The truth will always come to light. Sometimes that truth will come to light at the worst possible time, but the guarantee is that all truth will eventually come to light.

Some of us are harboring guilt due to events in our lives that we aren’t proud of. We wake each morning with a heaviness in our spirits that seems to grow with each and every day.

Our relationships with God and with our loved ones are suffering due to the sin we spend an insurmountable amount of time and energy trying to keep hidden from view.

We are being consumed from the inside out by the cancerous growth of shame and embarrassment surrounding our indiscretions.

And all the while, our loving Father God is knocking at the door of our hearts, yearning for renewed fellowship.

Take a look at those who have had their transgressions put on display all over the world in recent years. Some have made horrendous mistakes in judgment, however in most cases we have managed to forget the unforgettable.

Bill Clinton, Richard Nixon, Jim Bakker, Kobe Bryant, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tiger WoodsMartha Stewart and hundreds of others have had their sin blasted over every media outlet in the world at one time or another.

Now when we think of these public figures, rarely do we think about the huge mistakes they have made in the public eye.

It’s true, the transgressions that they were a part of will remain a part of their legacy, but in no way are their transgressions the main reason they are remembered.

As I write this, the Lance Armstrong transgression is at the forefront of the news. And as with the others listed above, when the buzz dies down in a few months, this incident will be back page news as well.

Don’t Allow the Enemy to Distort Your View of the Truth

If you’re dealing with a past transgression and if you’re fighting daily to keep your skeletons in the closet, don’t allow the enemy to paint the picture that your sin is the worse sin that has ever been committed.

He will try to convince you that what you did must never be revealed to anyone. He will try to tell you that no one, not even God will forgive you.

Don’t believe his lies. Remember, his sole purpose in life is to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). That is his motivation when he whispers his lies in your ear.

If you need to be forgiven, ask for forgiveness. If you need to forgive, take the steps to forgive.

Don’t allow yourself to be robbed of your spiritual, or physical health by harboring things that can only serve to destroy you, others, and your relationship with God.

The truth will always come to light. Sometimes that truth will come to light at the worst possible time, but the guarantee is that all truth will eventually come to light.

So since you know that it’s only a matter of time before the truth reveals itself, why not reveal the truth on your own terms?

It’s true that there may not be anything that you can do to go back in time to make things right, but most certainly you can start over today by setting the record straight in your life.

I encourage you to live a transparent life. Live an honorable life. Live a healthy life. Allow the freedom of the truth to reign in your life.

Stop fighting skeletons and ask for mercy if mercy is required. Allow God to begin the healing process in your life and in the lives of those around you.

  2. This is very true. Jesus came so that we could be free. We were not meant to live in bondage, and that's where sins keeps us. I like Stormie Omartian's quote asking God to pour out his Spirit of Truth on our loved ones. The truth sets us free.
