Yes Means Yes

Honor your promises.

If you are of Christ you must be truthful in your words and deeds. Just as you expect God to honor his promises, so should you honor your promises, not only your promises to Him but your promises to others as well. To willingly lie and betray brings shame to the Lord whom you represent. Honor your promises.

You have heard that it was said to our people long ago, Don’t break your promises, but keep the promises you make to the Lord. Matthew 5:33

Say only yes if you mean yes, and no if you mean no. If you say more than yes or no, it is from the Evil One. Matthew 5:37

He never doubted that God would keep his promise, and he never stopped believing. He grew stronger in his faith and gave praise to God. Romans 4:20

Do not lie to each other. You have left your old sinful life and the things you did before. Colossians 3:9

My brothers and sisters, above all, do not use an oath when you make a promise. Don’t use the name of heaven, earth, or anything else to prove what you say. When you mean yes, say only yes, and when you mean no, say only no so you will not be judged guilty. James 5:12

Represent your Lord well, honor your promises!

About admin

I am a depraved, morally bankrupt wretched sinner through and through. I’ve attended church sporadically most of my life, haven’t spent a minute in seminary and only recently gave the Bible more than a cursory review. I’ve attended exactly one theology class and I dropped out of that. However, in spite of my moral infidelity, I’ve come to be filled with the Holy Spirit. I’ve learned my salvation isn’t the result of what I do, but rather what Jesus has done on my behalf. I didn’t find the Holy Spirit, He found me. And in our relationship I have invited Him to change me, to use me for His purpose, to conquer my will with His own. Praise the Lord, for even an unworthy, chronic sinner like me can experience and give testimony to His glory!
