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.
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.
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."
