Do you ever embellish the truth just a bit? Do you try to make your ordinary life a bit more dramatic than it really is? And why not, you ask? Because when our stories are embellished and embroidered with our own two cents worth, we negate the truth.
Get involved with Jesus. He’ll give you all the drama you can handle.
But John intervened: “I’m baptizing you here in the river. The main character in this drama, to whom I’m a mere stagehand, will ignite the kingdom life, a fire, the Holy Spirit within you, changing you from the inside out. He’s going to clean house—make a clean sweep of your lives. He’ll place everything true in its proper place before God; everything false he’ll put out with the trash to be burned.”(Luke 3:16-17, MSG)
Prayer- Lord, may our words be ones that people can trust. Amen
