Reach the Heart Moment: Being Real

Published on:
October 14, 2020

All of us have put up fronts to impress someone.

We attempt to give someone an impression of what we want them to "think we are," but unfortunately, we're not. Some people have become so good at it, that they have even convinced themselves they are someone they are not.

Perhaps you have thought that putting up a spiritual front is harmless. Living one way every Sunday and then another way the rest of the week.

Deception and a false perception of any form are dangerous to both our own lives and the lives of the people we associate with.

The Bible tells us that we are to take on the nature of Jesus Christ.

Jesus did not claim to be someone and then turn out to be someone else. He is what He says He is. Hebrews 7:26 tells us that nobody could find fault in Him. 1 Peter 2:22 tells us His life was blameless as were His words.

In other words, Jesus was never guilty of saying, "Do as I say, not what I do," because, with Jesus, words and actions were the same.

Is your relationship with others real? Is your spiritual desire sincere?

Never be guilty of deception.

But instead, choose to live your life in a way you can say to your friends what Paul said to people at Corinth in 2 Corinthians 1:12,

"Our conscience testifies that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially in our relations with you, with integrity and godly sincerity. We have done so, relying not on worldly wisdom but on God's grace."

I’m Pastor Cal, and I pray you reach a heart through this Reach the Heart Moment.
