no other gods

Last night was another gathering session for the Bible study "No Other gods" by Kelly Minter. We participated in the common meal of the Pioneer Woman's Chicken Spaghetti and Kimberly Meyer's Banana Pudding. Oh-my-word! Talk about good! The ladies were quick to pick up their copies of the recipes. Note: The chicken spaghetti is a man-pleaser.)

Not only was the food fantastic but the discussion time was awesome. God was definitely in the midst of his girls. Hearts were opened, lives were touched and ministered to. We are experiencing a sister-in-Christ bonding like never before. Each of us is clearing away the surplus of debris in our hearts caused from the lies of Satan, and then filling up with God -- who IS love.

I appreciated the quote from Michael Wells that says "Satan will tell us what's true, but he never tells us the truth." That short sentence speaks volumes, doesn't it? Satan doesn't tell us a pure lie because he knows we would not buy into it. This Deceiver wraps truth around his caustic lies hoping that we will take the bait. With God's help, we can outsmart the father of lies -- every time.

I absolutely love God's Word! It's truth! (John 17:17). In order to adhere to the truth we have to know it! Be wise -- stay in the Word!

Preach it, Sister! That's right -- every effective lie contains an element of truth! Sin is nothing but a counterfeit version of what God intended. Put on that armor! (Eph. 6:11)
