Having Impeccable Truth

When I was in college, I pastored a little church every weekend. To get back and forth on this 300-mile round trip, I would travel in my old rattle trap automobile.

One night I realized one of my sealed beam headlights was burned out. I knew it was out, but I was hoping to get back to college before I got stopped. But this didn’t happen.

When the Highway Patrol officer stopped me, I knew why. He said, “Son, did you know one of your headlights is out?” Do you know what I said?  I said, “One of my headlights is out?” I wasn’t speaking a lie. The words I said were true. He said, “Son you better get that fixed.” I said, “Yes, sir,” and he let me go on my way.

When I got back in the car, the Holy Spirit tore me up. He said, “Adrian, you lied.” I said, “No, I didn’t lie. I told the truth.” He said, “You lied.”

If there is in your heart and in your life any area that is not based on impeccable truth, you’ve made the devil a home.

Ephesians 4:25 tells us, “Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another.” Go before the Lord this morning and ask Him to shine His search light into your heart. Don’t let Satan make a home there.
