The Truth That Won't Stay Under

ROMANS 1:18–19--"For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness because what may be known of God is manifest in them; for God has shown it to them."

Billy and Zeke play a mean game of water dodgeball.

Billy is the bully, but Zeke is the sneak. He tries to submerge the ball until he can get close and whack Billy. Zeke has a hard time keeping the buoyant ball down, though. He pushes and squeezes, but the ball keeps spurting back to the surface. You can’t suppress a beach ball in the depths of a swimming pool!

God has put His truth deep inside us. He has written His Law on our hearts (Romans 2:15). The only way a human being can deny God is to try to suppress the truth tucked away in the depths of their soul.

But that truth is irrepressible. It insists on bobbing to the surface. Men and women weary themselves trying to hold it down, but it won’t stay under. Let the truth emerge and you’ll wonder why you ever wanted to keep it submerged!
