“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.”John 17:17
The other day I was waiting in the car with my daughters as my wife ran into a store. While we waited, my girls wanted to play “Two Truths and a Lie.” If you’ve never played it before, each person in a group makes three statements about themselves, two which are true and one which is a lie. The other people in the group have to then guess which statement is the lie.
Now, this is a good ice-breaker game to play with a group of people who don’t know each other all that well. But it’s kind of hilarious when you play with your 8 and 10-year old daughters and you already know every detail of their lives. The lies are so blatantly obvious that you can’t help but laugh as they share them.
Like my daughters playing “Two Truths and a Lie” with me, we thankfully have a heavenly Father who knows the lies in our lives even better than we do. This world is so broken that we, even as Christians, can confuse what is true and what is a lie in our own lives.
As we meet with people at ATLAS, we pray that God would make the lies in theIr lives so blatantly obvious to them that they can’t help but reject them and turn to the Truth.
