Keep Your Word — Part 1

June 6, 2022

Oftentimes it is easy for us to belittle our words — to make excuses for not keeping our word or to justify ourselves for why we didn’t do what we said we would do. However, God calls us to a higher way of living. As Christians, we need to be as good as our word! Listen as Nate and Gabe expound on Jesus’ command in Matthew 5 to “let your yes be yes and your no be no.”

In a day where deception is commonplace, consider the weight of this truth: God always keeps His word! This is part of His character and nature! God’s desire for us, as those who have God Himself living in us, is that we accurately represent Him by keeping our word as well.

  • Gabe Cleator, Host

    Gabe Cleator loves Jesus and desires to help others cultivate an intimate relationship with Christ as the All-Sufficient One. Gabe holds a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Ministries, is author of the book Always and in Everything, and currently serves as the director of the Home Discipleship Network under the ministry of IBLP. His passion is to see God’s people turn back to a vibrant, living Christianity that has Christ at the center and the Word as the foundation. Gabe and his wife, Sara, live in East Texas where they enjoy serving the Lord together and spending time in the great outdoors, taking fishing trips or visiting National Parks.

  • Nate Paine, Host

    Nate Paine loves pointing people to God’s Word. After giving his life to the Lord at age 11, he has carried Isaiah 61:1–3 as his life verses, following God’s call to “preach good tidings unto the meek,” “bind up the brokenhearted,” “proclaim liberty to the captives,” and offer beauty for ashes through the Person and work of Christ. Nate completed his bachelor’s degree in Biblical Ministries, has served in prison ministry, and mentored many young men through the Journey to the Heart program. Today, he lives with his wife and four children in East Texas where he serves on staff with IBLP and the Home Discipleship Network. In his spare time, you may find Nate reading his favorite authors (Andrew Murray and A.W. Tozer), perfecting his pour-over coffee brewing, or adventuring with his children—preferably with fishing poles in hand.
