May Those  Who Seek You  Not Be Dishonored  Through Me

There are many misleading preachers,  who cause others  to lose  their salvation.     Come Judgment Day,  many will “be dishonored”  for following false preachers  and teachers.     Yes,  they should have checked out everything  with God’s word  —  but they didn’t.     The false preacher  will bear eternal judgment  for his falsehoods,  along with all his followers,  who did not carefully  verify everything  with the Bible.

There are also those  who unknowingly spread  false teachings  because they haven’t  studied God’s word  as they should.     We are all sinners  —  but  we are also  all responsible  for diligently studying  God’s word  for ourselves  —  so that “you will know the truth,  and the truth  will make you free”.   (John 8:32)

2 Timothy 2:15  tells us,

Be diligent  to present yourself approved  to God  as a workman  who does not need  to be ashamed,  accurately handling the word  of truth.

King David  was very concerned  about knowing God’s truths  and sharing those truths rightly  —  so that he would not inadvertently mislead anyone  through his words  or actions.     David prayed  in Psalm 69:6,

May those  who wait  for You  not be ashamed  through me,  O Lord GOD  of hosts;
May those  who seek You  not be dishonored  through me,  O God  of Israel.

We don’t want anyone  to “be ashamed”  for believing something  we wrongly said.     We don’t want anyone  to  “be dishonored”  before other people  and God  for trusting our  wrong teachings.     There are many  who “seek” God  by talking  to other people.     They are imagining  that they are speaking  to someone  who is trustworthy  and at least somewhat knowledgeable.

Since God’s truths  deal  with eternal salvation,  everyone needs to be  “accurately handling the word  of truth”.     We are not to let false preachers  mislead us  —  and we are not  to mislead  anyone else.

In the joyous freedom  of God’s truths,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  let Your holy word  teach us  and lead us  to salvation.”

Love,
Margaret
