2/2/2021 – Don’t Lie

Colossians 3:9 - Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds
As dead in Christ and now in Him you live,
No longer have to deal with sin and shame,
For that old self is gone; He did forgive
And freed you from the devil’s deathly claim.
Here Jesus is the Truth and now are you,
For He lives in you now forevermore.
There’s no need to relate to what’s untrue,
And no need to speak lies like once before.
But if you find yourself within the flesh
And speak a lie no matter what the cause,
The Spirit will convict your heart afresh.
Repent to God, to those you lied – no pause!
            To all the truth the Holy Ghost will guide;
            Now learn to be attentive and abide.
