“This is the reason that I speak to them in parables; because having the power of seeing, they don’t see; and having the power of hearing, they don’t hear; nor do they grasp and understand.” Matthew 13:13 Amplified
Are you a christian? In this country as well as outside of this country if someone’s family goes to church or has a christian name they are considered a christian. Are they a christian? Most people I know believe they are, but what does their life say?
They may feel like they aren’t a “bad” person, they don’t kill or rob anyone, they mind their own business and try to enjoy their life. Well the NOT killing and robbing, that’s good, but what about the rest of the 10 commandments. Would the “good” person say they don’t lie, don’t envy, or have never been unfaithful in a committment. Those are just the commandments involving others. How about the ones involving God. He tells us not to worship anyone or anything else but Me. What or who do you spend your time with/on – that’s worship. Don’t use the Lord’s name in vain and honor Him on the Sabbath/Sunday. How we doing so far?
We regularly need to re-evaluate our relationship with God to see where we are or where we are going. If we call ourselves a christian we need to make sure we are lined up with Him.
