Truth stands strong while lies crumple and destroy.
Standing on the truth doesn’t mean we’ll be spared pain or trouble. Sometimes standing on the truth invites trouble. Jesus invited trouble from His enemies by not only standing on truth but for being the Truth.
The truth interfered with their plans. Jesus interfered with their plans. So they interfered with Jesus. Or at least they tried.
Their lies actually played straight into Jesus’ hands and into God’s plan that had been set out since the beginning of time.
Truth stood strong.
Meanwhile, lies, lies, and more lies crumpled Peter and Judas.
Listen to what Matthew tells us in Matthew 26:57-75.
