S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Not at all! Let God be true, and every human being a liar.
St. Paul was actually answering his own rhetorical question. He had asked, “What if some righteous people who are the carriers of God’s law end up being unfaithful to the law they promote? Will their unfaithfulness discredit God’s faithfulness?” Here’s where Paul answered his question and said, “Not at all! In fact, let God be TRUE, and every human on the planet be a liar because God Is Always TRUE!”
When I read this passage, I always think to myself, “Rich, never question whether God is right or not because some of His children here on earth end up being phony!” Whether you and I are good representatives of Christ’s gospel doesn’t change the fact that “God Is Always TRUE!” What the Apostle is saying right here is that every supposed “Follower of Christ” could end up being a hypocrite, and it still would not change the fact that Jesus has never, is not now, and will never be a hypocrite! That should give us such assurance this AM that we serve a God who can be completely, and with no hesitation on our part, TRUSTED! I’m not serving a flake, a phony, a cult figure, or a despot! No! I am serving the living, loving, King of Kings and Lord of Lords! So today, take heart, “God Is Always TRUE!”
I confess I’m not the man I always hope to be. I have failed, and I battle failure. I want to be like You more than anything, but I’m still me. I thank You for Your grace that has covered me time and time again. Most of all, I thank You that “God Is Always TRUE!” Amen
