This Sunday we continue with the series, “Love God Love All,” and we will be focusing on the Ninth Commandment – “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” Lying is a chummy sin. It usually chums up to whatever other sins are around and joins in the adventure. As Oliver Wendell Holmes said, "Sin has many tools, but a lie is the handle that fits them all." God calls His people to speak truth. His word is truth. And our word should be truth. If you are one who regularly lies, you are invited out of the darkness and into freedom. "You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”
Stop lying. Speak the truth in love. You will be free.
Invite from your Pastor: Following the September 4, 90 minute distribution of our “Come. See. Connect” fliers to subdivisions, I invite you to my home for a potluck picnic. Bring lawn chairs, a favorite food, and yard or board games. I will smoke some pork roasts, so bring complementary foods. If you have preferences for a different holiday weekend meat, bring it. A grill will be available. If your kids like fishing, bring rods for an afternoon excursion to the pond on 93rd. Let’s hang out and enjoy each other. This is a rain or shine party. Please RSVP by Friday, September 2 to the office, 219/558-0573 or PathwayAdmin@pathwaycrc.org.
