We choose to demonstrate to others through our lives and lips, a testimony of both ourselves and Christ to the world around us.
We tell a truth and live out the truth or we tell a lie and live out a lie.
It's one or the other and never both.
When godly individuals own up to “ungodly” truths,
God has an opportunity to display His redemptive power and might.

He will work there, reside there, dwell there, and abide there.
God is always on the side of truth.
Sin is a serious business;
Dealing with it is a redemptive business.
Those who tell the truth about their sin will be applied the blood of Christ and introduced into a greater depth and intimacy with Christ.
Those who try to conceal truth,
Remove truth,
Hinder truth,
Reject the truth,
Hide the truth,
And cast out truth,
Will contend with the Truth and live out a final consequence in relation to it.
Always remember that Truth is a person.
Truth is, ultimately, Jesus Christ,
And telling it is paramount to His testimony at work in you ... and the intimacy He longs to have with you.

When Christ becomes the “single” factor in the defining of our lives:
The garbage gets removed,
The sin gets exposed,
The truth gets told,
And Christ reveals Himself …
Mysteriously …
And grace happens.
Take God up on His word and act on it.
"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper; but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy."
Proverbs 28:13
