You, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach not to steal, do you steal? You who say not to commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? You who boast in the law, do you dishonor God through breaking the law? As it is written, “The name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you. Romans 2:21-24 MEV
I was meditating on this and thought to myself, How many people who claim to be a ‘Christian’ are living a lie, not living by faith and misrepresenting God? There are too many! Many of them don’t realise (although some do) that they are 1 of the reasons that people don’t want to believe in God.
Unbelievers look at the bad example of the person, they look at their life and think to themselves:
“Is this the life your God has on offer for those who believe in Him?”
“How is it that your God claims to heal and yet you are still sick?”
“Why is it that you’re facing this injustice and you’re sitting there waiting on your God to provide?”
“Your God doesn’t seem unreliable!”
And the list of comments continues. What a shame to be consider a person that makes people DOUBT the God of the bible. As a true Christian, the person cannot allow God to be blasphemed, misrepresented or doubted by the unbelievers.
And how do we do this?
By living everyday in faith, obeying the directions from God and demanding the Lord Jesus to show Himself in full power through our life.
I pray that the Holy Spirit has opened your mind and you have accepted this truth!
