“You hypocrites. Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said: “‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’”
- There is a huge difference between following a set of rules in the Bible to obtain righteousness, and allowing Christ to transform your heart by allowing Him to be the Lord of your life. The rules are our standard, but attaining that standard comes only through the power of Christ in you. One will not occur without the other. Let Jesus transform you today. When our hearts are true, our words and actions will always follow.
- Is your professed Christianity based on you trying to look like a Christian, or the fact that you have given your life to Christ, and you are becoming more like Him because of your relationship with Him?
- Is your heart what you claim, or is your Christian walk only surface deep?
Dear Lord – May our hearts be the first thing we give to You. Amen
