You’ve heard the song ‘Voice of Truth’ by Casting Crowns. The lyrics resinant in the back of your mind. But the real thing is, what does that song tell us? Does it tell us about how trustworthy God is, or does it tell us that we must be trustworthy with other believers. When we’re outside of the wall of our home, we see others who say they are Christians, but never act like it. Posting on social media claiming you believe in Jesus Christ is like saying you believe in Buddah or Muhammad; there is not real faith no real truth behind it. Christ paid for our sins on a cross for those whom believed in Him. Shouldn’t that be proof enough, shouldn’t that be truth enough?
Striding around a public place with Christian friends and claiming you’re a Chrisrian yourself is all well and good, until words spew from your mouth that aren’t Christ-like. Unless you produce good fruit, how can other believers tell that you’re walking with Christ? They can’t because of the way you hold yourself; a captive of the world, still a slave to sin. So, when you proclaim everywhere that you’re a supposed Christian, that you read the Bible daily, and hold fast to God’s commandments, but never act it out, how can others view you?
Speak truth, show others that you are a Christian by the works you do, by the way you act. Not by going to some place with friends who supposedly believe in Christ, and fellowshiping with them while you continue to act like a jerk. Just stop. All you’re doing is acting like the world, there is no change, no good fruit bearing from you. How about being truthful with everyone and telling them you have no way of denying yourself before Christ and taking up His cross and following Him; than, lying and spuing lies and false words.
Being truthful, showing who Christ is, is way better than proclaiming you know who Christ is than lying about it to everyone you know.
You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Matt 7:16-19
But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:21-32
