Re:Verse reading–Acts 4:1-22 (day four)
Politics have always been the same, I guess. It makes little difference what the truth is…only what the desired outcome of the power brokers happens to be. The rulers and elders recognized that a miracle had taken place…they knew the truth! But…their question was…how do we keep the truth from spreading, so we can squelch the truth? The truth did not accomplish their goals. Even when the truth is blatantly obvious to everyone…the childish adherence to a lie is repeated over and over again.
Have you ever done that? Do we ignore God’s truth and develop lame excuses for not obeying His Word? Israel did. Jeremiah 2:13 says, “For my people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, to hew for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns that can hold no water.” God does not adhere to truth, He is Truth! Check your heart and follow truth!
