Just an Act
31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”
A few weeks ago, while my son was at his devotional, I noticed in the City Centre that there were people sitting down and watching something on the outdoor stage. I ventured out and noticed that it was a play about Lucifer. Since I didn’t catch it from the beginning, I didn’t understand it. They were wearing costumes, music was playing and a smoke machine generated some special effects. Actors and actresses have entertained us over the years as they transform and act like somebody else. When they do a good job, you forget who they really are and believe the person that they represent when they act.
Lucifer has done a grand job over the centuries acting like a sheep in wolf’s clothing. He masquerades like an angel of light, but his motives is to kill and steal. There is no truth in him as he acts like he wants to help us. If we want to know the truth, we can’t follow the act that Satan has presented to the world. He wants us to believe that we are good enough, we don’t need to be baptized or we don’t need God. He can also deceive us into complacency so that we are slowly drifting away from God without noticing. Jesus has the answer and he has the truth that will set us free from the deception of the world.
