Ephesians 5:6

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient.” Ephesians 5:6 NIV

Celebrities, experts, and teachers in society and even some in the church are spouting empty words. They are trying to deceive people into thinking an activity or behavior that God has declared as sinful is in fact good and acceptable. God is not mocked. What God has declared as sinful is sinful no matter what culture or experts may say. God’s wrath and judgment will be and is being poured out on those who are disobedient. Those who participate in a sinful lifestyle will face the consequences for their disobedience.

Lord Jesus, help me not to be fooled by distorted words, half-truths, and lies spouted by our society. Instead let me stand firm on the truth of Your Word, the Bible.
