Truth or Consequences by Scarlett Stough

There are always unwanted consequences to believing a lie, especially if it is a lie undergirding all or many of the decisions and choices we make.

The very first lie was told by the devil in the guise of a harmless garden snake. He said, “You will not surely die” (Genesis 3:4.)

In contrast, Jesus said, “I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins” (John 8:24.)

Who did Jesus claim to be?

“I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”
John 8:58

I AM is God’s name:

God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.”
Exodus 3:14

Jesus insisted that only through believing in him can anyone have eternal life (John 3:13-21.)

Who are you going to believe?
