Do You Believe God Tells the Truth? – Girlfriends in God – April 21, 2017
April 21, 2016
Do You Believe God Tells the Truth?
Sharon Jaynes Today’s Truth “I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms . . .” (Ephesians 1:18–20, NIV emphasis added). Friend to Friend God speaks to me in the comics. I know. That’s weird. But He does. Pickles comic strip features an older couple named Earl and Pearl Pickles. One day Earl and Pearl were sitting on a porch swing and the following conversation ensued. Frame one: Pearl, “Did you know the DNA of humans and chimpanzees is 98 percent the same?” Frame two: Earl, “I know it but I don’t believe it.” Frame three: Pearl, “You know it, but you don’t believe it?” Frame four: Earl, Yes, “I don’t believe everything I know.” And there you have it! In the wise words of Earl Pickles, our problem is that we don’t really believe everything we know. We go to Bible studies year after year, hear sermons Sunday after Sunday, and read books page after page. But until we move from knowing to believing, we’re going to be stuck in the mediocre, mundane, milquetoast faith that expects little and receives even less. Jesus said, “You will know the truth and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). The Greeks had many words for our one word know. The Greek word used here is ginosko. In the New Testament it frequently indicates a relationship between the person “knowing” and the object known. It is more than head knowledge of the truth, but believing the truth and applying it to your life in action. There is a sense in which true knowledge (of God) leads to action in keeping with obedience. My devotions lately have focused on our true identity in Christ. Those accumulated verses about my identity in Christ were not new to me when I made my initial list. Perhaps they were not new to you either. I had read them scattered through Scripture before, and had even memorized a few. But I didn’t truly believe them. Not really. I would have never admitted that to anyone—not even to myself. I’d smile and say amen with the best of them. But when the rubber of the truth hit the road of adversity, I moved those verses into the category of nice gestures on God’s part, rather than the truth that could set me free and give me victory to overcome. Jesus said this about the Pharisees: “You studythe Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me,yet you refuse to come to me to have life” (John 5:39–40). These guys studied the Scriptures in minute detail. They knew the Scriptures inside and out, every jot and tittle, dot and dash. However they did not believe the truth that would have set them free and given eternal life—the Truth that was standing right in front of them. Paul wrote to the Ephesians: “I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms . . .” (Eph. 1:18–20, emphasis added).
