Daily Bible Study with Purpose

John 8:31-32
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

🔴 CONVENIENT AMNESIA!

Do you believe you can depend on God keeping His Word and His promises?  
 
Can God depend on you? How are you showing your love for God by letting your words be your bond that others can depend on as truth? Do you stick to your promises no matter what or who may encourage you to act differently? Or are you making promises to people only when you find it convenient?  Do you suddenly change your mind because the opportunity to do differently is too great not to seize the moment?  
 
Do you make excuses and do just the opposite no matter the consequences or how you may be thought of as a person? A leader? Forgetting because you sincerely do not remember is one thing but deliberately deciding to neglect responsibility is a sin. It is a lie! Misrepresentation is especially harmful when you do not care about the chaos you will inflict on others. Please read and listen to God’s instructive words in Psalm 15, to help you keep your promise.
 
Psalm 15:1-5
O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent?
Who shall dwell on your holy hill?
2 He who walks blamelessly and does what is right
and speaks truth in his heart;
3 who does not slander with his tongue
and does no evil to his neighbor,
nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
4 in whose eyes a vile person is despised,
but who honors those who fear the Lord;
who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
5 who does not put out his money at interest
and does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be move
