Does Your Conduct Reflect Your Faith

It is interesting that in the past 50 plus years that there has been teaching by many that people who come to Christ only need to acknowledge Him, but not be concerned about living for Him. The Old Testament is our example as why this is not true. If the only thing that Israel had to do was to acknowledge God through the annual sacrifice to be accepted by God then why would God say that ‘they honored Him with their lips, but their heart was far from Me.’(Matthew 15:8,9) And again He said that ‘not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, will enter in to His kingdom.’ (Matthew 7:21) The ones whom God regarded, were those whose heart and life were fixed on pleasing Him by doing what God had said is right. The Psalm that we are going to look at this morning declares this reality very well. So, those who seek God to follow Him are those who belong to Him and are blessed.
