Are you a man of truth? Carefully ponder what Jesus said about such a person:
He who speaks on his own does so to gain honor for himself, but he who works for the honor of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him. (John 7:18)
The determining factor to know if one is a man of truth or not is: Is that person working for the honor of Jesus or himself? The motive behind one’s actions and goals reveals the answer. So, are you a man of truth or something much less?
One day this short life will be over. All temporal earthly goals and achievements of man will be meaningless at our Judgment before God. The only thing that will matter is doing God’s will:
God will give to each person according to what he has done. To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. (Rom 2:6-8)
Will you get eternal life or God’s wrath and anger? The choice is yours.
