Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him— Colossians 3:9-10
One of my high school friends loved to come up to me, eyeball to eyeball and say “Husen, level with me”. It was awkward, but it was an opportunity to clear the air if anything needed to be said. We were made after the image of Christ. This is God’s design. Since that is the case, and because we are being renewed day by day, we should tell the truth to each other, lay aisde evil practices and allow the true knowledge of God to be expressed in every aspect of our lives.
So, again I come to the question, am I the example of Jesus Christ in all my God-given relationships, roles and responsibilities? I do have a couple people I want to reconnect with and have some tough conversations, that need to happen. I need to “Level with them”.
Lord Jesus, help me move, prompted by Your Spirit to say and do what is right and necessary. Help me speak with grace and truth. May this day, our celebration of freedom, be one of freedom in You!
