Know any Liars

Take a look at these passages:
  • 1 John 1:10
  • 1 John 2:4
  • 1 John 2:22
  • 1 John 4:20
  • 1 John 5:10

Know any Liars

What is repeated?  Right, “liar”.
John tells us that a liar is one who:
  • Says he has come to know Christ but doesn’t keep Christ’s commandments.
  • Denies Jesus is the Christ
  • Says, “I love God!”  Yet hates his brother.
  • Does not believe God (the passage says that we make God a liar, which is, a lie).
  • Says he has not sinned.
That is a large, fine meshed net.  At one time or other, I have said or thought at least one of those.  My suspicion is that I am not alone in that reality.

The good news is that God is in the business and habit of redeeming liars.  All I have to do to wipe the slate clean is ask (1 John 1:9).
