Reality Check

Joel 2:13

The life you’re portraying…is it an act or is it real?

Are you going through the motions of living Christ like because that’s what you think people expect of you?

Or are you truly living for Jesus? Do you desire that you are a voice for Him? Are you living your life with the intent of bringing Him glory?

People walk around seemingly serving the same God. But sadly that isn’t always true. God knows what’s on the inside. He knows whether it’s just for display or if it’s done out of deep love and devotion.

I encourage you to dig a little. Ask The Lord to show you why you live the way you do. And if you feel convicted simply pray for the desires of your heart to change.

Jesus will gladly turn your masquerade into rooted reality.

Checklist

Philippians 4:8

Sometimes we deal with heartache much longer than is necessary because we replay the pain over and over again in our minds.

Sometimes we stress about what might happen in the future.

Sometimes we dwell on all the wrong going on in the world.

….when you find your thoughts running away on you ask yourselves these questions:

Is it true?

Is it just?

Is it honest?

Is it pure?

Is it lovely?

Is it of good report?

Is it virtuous?

Is it cause for praise?

If you can’t answer yes to every question then you need to stop thinking on it. Think instead on the things that do hold truth, honesty, justice, purity, loveliness, good report, virtue and praise…think on Jesus.

Matthew 3:17

“…this is my beloved Son, in whom I well pleased.”

Could God say the same thing about you?
