Be holy to God Matthew 23:1-10 Religious leaders making a show of their holiness Doing it for other men, not for God Doing what is easy What do they love? To be seen in holy clothes Places of honor, best seats in the synagogues Greetings in the marketplace Their title
John 5: How can ye believe, who receive glory one of another, and the glory that cometh from the only God ye seek not? 45 Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, on whom ye have set your hope. 46 For if ye believed Moses, ye would believe me; for he wrote of me. 47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
Who is more holy?
Disconnection Instead of their appearance being an outward sign of what is inside, some use appearance as a way to hide who they really are. Matthew 23:25-32 Full of Greed and Self-indulgence Appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are dirty, full of mens bones Speak lies How shall they escape the judgment of hell?
How is the inside? First clean the inside Jeremiah 4:14 Dont forget to practice all of Gods law Matthew 23:23 Put off pride and stubborness Matthew 23:37
Matthew 15: But the things which proceed out of the mouth come forth out of the heart; and they defile the man. 19 For out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, railings: 20 these are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not the man. Luke 12:2-3 Are you hiding who you are?
Examine yourself Colossians 1:21-23 Examine your mind Examine your works Continue in faith, dont move from hope Philippians 1:27 Examine how you act other places
Examine yourself James 1:22-25 Everyone has ears and can listen, but it takes a follower to do. A believer. People hear and listen, but when they go out the doors, what kind of person are they? Luke 11:28 You can find this phrase repeated in the bible.
Things to remember about God I Chronicles 28:9 9 And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.
Things to remember about God Psalms 147: He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man. 11 The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
Conclusion Be a Christian in word and deed. Remember who made you a Christian and who you should please. Galatians 1:10 Appearances can be deceiving, dont be a deceiver, examine yourself.
Are you a Christian? Hebrews 9:27 And inasmuch as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this cometh judgment; Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that disbelieveth shall be condemned.
