Are You What You Say?

Posted: January 22, 2012 in Uncategorized

Ever meet people that say one thing and in reality are quite different. It is interesting to me that they see others through the eyes of their reality. Jesus did not say, “Do not judge.” He said, “Do not judge, or you will be judged by the same criteria.” He said, “How can you remove a speck from someone’s eye when there is a beam in your own eye?” If you read that passage in Mattehw 7 you will discover that those who see the specks in someone’s eye is usally because they deal with the same problem in their life, in “Log size” not speck size.

God is not who you say that He is. God is who He says that He is. He is truth. He is reality. He is pure. He is absolutely honest. So what God reveals of Himself is who He is. Not who we try to make Him into by our finite conceptions. That, by the way is idolatry.

Ironically, we are not so much who we say we are. We are who are actions show that we are. I John 1 issues three false professions. Some talk the talk and never walk the walk. So who are you relly? Are you who you tell us you are? I am too busy trying to let God clean me up to judge others for their sins. That does not mean that I don’t help a brother. That doesn’t mean I cannot enter into covenant with others to walk together. But it means I must remain humble because of the battle with my own flesh.
