Jesus Revealed Hypocrisy
Godloves.me
Mai 10 2020

„Talking the talk but not walking the walk“ is a popular saying, to describe hypocrisy. Unfortunately, hypocrisy appears not only in religious settings but all over the world. Hypocrisy destroys credibility and ruins relationships. Jesus uncovered hypocrisy with all his might. Throughout many passages in the New Testament, Jesus exposes dishonesty and brings forth the truth. Thus he made bitter enemies among the religious leaders. Instead of turning away from their untruthful ways they choose to become resentful and hard hearted towards the son of God. 

Jesus, the Son of God, died on the cross for the transgressions (sin) of all people. He forgives all who ask him! People who have learned to understand this live in freedom with God and others. The basis of „discipleship“ is to admit one’s faults and be forgiven. Sadly, it is often easier to use a little religious paint to cover up our mistakes, than to look closely and honestly at our lives and ask for forgiveness. 

It takes courage to be honest, open and transparent! 

Is there any hypocrisy in your life? If so, take courage! Be open, be honest, be transparent. Allow God to transform your heart from the inside out. 

„These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.“

Jesus quotes from the book of Isaiah in Mark 7:6

How do you feel about being honest with others? Have you received forgiveness from Jesus and found rest in Him?
