A Libel Against God

Human sin began with loss of faith in God! When our mother Eve listened to Satan's—sly innuendoes against the character of God, she began to entertain a doubt of His integrity-and right there the doors were opened to the incoming of every possible evil and darkness settled upon the world. Relationship between moral beings is by confidence, and confidence rests upon character, which is a guarantee of conduct. God is a being of supreme moral excellence, possessing in infinite perfection all the qualities that constitute holy character. He deserves and invites the unreserved confidence of every moral creature, including man. Any proper relation to Him must be by confidence, that is, faith. Idolatry is the supreme sin and unbelief is the child of idolatry. Both are libels on the Most High and Most Holy. John wrote: "He that believeth not God hath made Him a liar." A God who would lie is a God without character. Repentance is a man's sincere apology for distrusting God for so long, and faith is throwing oneself upon Christ in complete confidence. Thus by faith reconciliation is achieved between God and man!

Verse

He that believeth not God hath made him a liar. 1 John 5:10

Thought

John wrote: "He that believeth not God hath made Him a liar." A God who would lie is a God without character.

Prayer

Lord, thank You for being the One in whom my faith will never go unrewarded.
