I have just finished making a true and false quiz for my Bible class at school tomorrow. I will say the sentence and the children will have to figure out which ones are true and which ones are false. Sometimes true and false quizzes are easy. Other times they can be quite tricky.
Jesus said that He is the truth. He also said that Satan is the Father of lies. So everything Jesus says is true. And everything that Satan says is false or twisted.
In my Bible story at school thismorning, I told the story of Zachariah and Elisabeth. The angel said, “You will have a son.” Zachariah said, “How do I know what you say is true? It’s impossible–we’re too old.” But if God says it, it’s the truth. And it was the truth. He did have a son.
It would do us good to remember that sometimes life is like a true and false test. We need to figure out whether our thoughts are true or false! I often find myself thinking, “But I feel…” or “It seems…” Feelings are often different than the truth. What seems is not always what is.
God’s Word is always true. It’s so easy to doubt it, like Zachariah did, as it can seem impossible. But he found out, that with God nothing is impossible!
