Stark Contrast

today's reading.
Titus 1:1-3John 8:38-47    Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the sake of the faith of God's elect and their knowledge of the truth, which accords with godliness...

think about it.
What important characteristic of God does Paul reveal (Titus 1:2)? By contrast, what is the devil known for (John 8:44-45)? How does Titus 1:2 build up your trust in God?

I love it when Scripture is absolutely clear, and that's the case with both of our passages today. Jesus is speaking in John 8:38-47, and he boldly and clearly tells us that Satan is a liar and has nothing to do with the truth (vs. 44). Then referring to Himself, the son of God, Jesus says "I tell the truth. . ." (vs. 45). Paul words in Titus 1:2 likewise tell us that God never lies.

So what did John 8:38-47 show you about Satan versus God? What did you learn from John 8:38-47 and Titus 1:1-3 about God's character and trusting Him? How will you use these verses to boost your trust factor? Tami W.
