How do we learn to recognize what is false? We might think that the best way to learn to spot falsehood is by studying counterfeits. Surprisingly this is not true! We actually learn to spot a counterfeit by immersing ourselves in the real thing! This principle holds true in our walk with the Lord as well. As we saturate our lives in Him and His Word, He sharpens our discernment to be able to distinguish truth from error.
In our day, there is a growing need for us to be able to discern between what is true and what is false. With so much teaching from so many sources available at our fingertips, we can see that Jesus’ command to Beware of False Prophets is just as applicable and needful for us today! For this reason, may we daily saturate our hearts and minds in the Word of God! As we do, we will know the Truth and be able to discern what is not of God through the power of His Holy Spirit.
