Truth

Sometimes life can be very confusing. People have different opinions about what is right or wrong. Is it okay to drink alcohol? Should Christians give money to their church or to charities? Is is right to have sex before marriage? There is a long list of questions like these.

So how can we know whose opinion is right? How can we know the truth about these questions in life? The only way to really know the truth about hard questions is to find the answers in God’s Word, the Bible.

Paul was telling some Christians that they should wear God’s armor to help fight against the devil and his temptations. In Ephesians 6:14, Paul talked about truth. “So stand strong with the belt of truth tied around your waist, and on your chest wear the protection of right living.”

Here Paul was saying that we need to know what is true. The only way to know what is true is to read God’s Word. Then we can resist the devil’s temptations. God’s Word will also help us make good decisions and help us as we struggle with all the confusion in life.

Talk to God. Read His Word. Learn the truth. Then you will be able to make right choices in your life.
