“This is the third time I am coming to you. Every fact is to be confirmed by the testimony of two or three witnesses” (2 Corinthians 13:1)
If only the world would practice these simple things. A truthful witness that is corroborated would establish things that happened. Alas, we would rather be tantalized and go off believing fantasy. How sad that the world shows its rebellion by adopting what is wrong and then pretending it is right. For this reason God has come into our world that those who would be rescued might be.
Lord, help me first to see things as they are. Then, help me to not get caught up in the nonsense of this world and do things the way the world does them. Guide me, O Lord, in the right way of thinking and acting. Let me hear and discern whether a testimony is reasonable or just another one of the devil’s fables to stir up the crowds. Lead me, Lord, to be one who walks in the way of truth.
Come Holy Spirit and bring discernment to my heart. You know the things that are going on in my heart and You know all that is needed in me for me to be able to see things as they are and do things as the ought to be done. Keep me on the narrow way that I would learn to act like Jesus. Grant me a new heart that longs after purity, honesty, and true justice. Guide me, Lord, in the way of salvation. Amen.
