The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.
Isaiah 29:13 NIV
This message is powerful. For what reason to seek the Lord? Do speak as a believer, yet dont give him your trust? Do you pray yet your not truly devoted to him? From a young age, growing up in a Christian home, I was thought you pray, go to church, and be a respectable person. Those were the rules. I followed them that way for years. I called myself a believer, I prayed most days, talked to God often so I was being the perfect paper Christian. Then one day it all clicked for me, God deserves more. He doesnt want you to check a box on the list of “How to be a good Christian ” He wants your heart, he wants your commitment, he wants you to step out in faith and be someone who you may not be comfortable with. He wants you to be a reflection of him. So each day we must live out our life for him. Amen.
