A New Kind of Christian Hypocrite
1peter 2:9 – But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests,[a] a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.
we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation… This is who we are today as a result of everything that Jesus did for us on the cross.
We also have a new nature, which is supposed to be allergic to sin.
Hypocrisy can be said to be Falsehood, pretending or claiming to be something or somebody that you’re not. The funny reality is, as believers, when we sin we then become hypocrites because that’s not our nature.
We are a holy people, people who love God and cherish him, and have been set apart for His purpose. We are people who live above sin by Grace; by Gods strength. Let us live like who we have been made to be, because now we have the nature and ability by God to do it. If intentionally, we live below that, then we appear has hypocrites.
You are holy…Believe it…Accept it… Embrace it…Practice it.
#pray Lord, help me to know and understand this new nature that I have received, and realize that I am royalty, set apart in you, amen.
