…”for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves”.. Is.28:15
“Abide in Me”..John15:4
Jesus said unto him, “I am…. the truth”…John14:6
“If ye continue (abide) in my word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John8:31-32
Do you love the truth? Jesus is not only the Way and the Life, He is also the Truth. We cannot abide in Christ unless we abide in the truth. A living branch is connected to the Vine. We cannot abide in the truth unless we love the truth. One who abides in falsehood (lies) is not loving or abiding in the truth. How do we know we are not making lies our refuge? We must love the truth more than comfort, convenience, tradition, popularity, acceptance and friends. If we are deceived we do not even realize we are abiding in lies. Ask God to open your eyes to reveal to you the lies. Watch out, because He will. If you seek truth with a pure and sincere heart, God will reveal the lies and the truth, so that you will know them. If you become aware of your connection to lies, disconnect from them and abide in the Truth.
