Devotion – Children of Light

When we lie, we lose a part of our soul. If we continue to lie and live a lie we lose our souls completely and no longer have an authentic relationship with God or his Kingdom. (Rev. 21:8) Over time a liar becomes “seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron” (I Tim 4:2). This means that certain people can lie so often that it doesn’t bother them anymore. They can lie without batting a eye and never feel bad. In fact they become experts at dishonesty and deceit. They are pros at selling their lies, covering their lies, living their lies, and then they go to church and pretend that they are children of light. It’s important that as children of light, that we be people of truth and complete honesty. In the long run it pays off. People in business over time, when they lie and cheat and steal, will be found out, and will “reap what they sow” (Gal 6). They can live in their million dollar houses, drive their expensive cars, and act as if they are successful businessmen while ripping you off, and then pretend that they are fooling everyone, but in the end, the scriptures say that they will “reap what they sow”. Live with integrity. Live in such a way that when Christ comes back again, that you will not shrink away from Him in Shame (I John 2:28) as all your lies are finally exposed.
