DON’T BE A HYPOCRITE
Main Text: Matthew 23:13 “But woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: For ye shut up the kingdom of Heaven against men: For ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go”.
Isaiah 3:10 “Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him; for they shall eat the fruit of their doings”
A hypocrite is a pretender with deceitful behavior. You say one thing and mean another thing, or do another thing. God says in the above text, woe unto them or cursed be upon them. Beloved of God, may it not be our portion in Jesus’ name, Amen. “Even so, ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within you are full of Hypocrisy and iniquity” (Matthew 23:28). The word Hypocrisy should not even be mentioned among believers.
We should live a life without spot or wrinkle. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and wisdom is the principal thing. To enable us to excel in life. A life of Hypocrisy will make God to withdraw from you or step aside from your life affairs, God forbid. God says woe unto the person. If you are the light of the world, let it show in your conduct, character, and behavior.
Don’t act righteously before your pastor and become a tiger at your business premises. Our service is towards God and not to impress men. Let your records before men attract them to discover your God.
GOD IS WATCHING US
PRAYER: Holy Spirit, guide me in all I do. Give me the spirit of righteousness to boldly live for you even if I am the only one doing it, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
