Be Sure! 40 Days of Assurance – Day 17

Be Sure – Day 17

Beware of using a veneer of obedience to mask a selfish heart.

Making sure that your faith works does not mean that the Christian life is all about rules.

The Pharisees in Jesus’ time relentlessly pursued acts of obedience, but they became self-righteous – believing they deserved heaven because what they had done.

What does the Bible say about this? “Without Christ, even our best, most righteous works areas ‘filthy rags’ (Isaiah 64:6).

The Pharisees’ external obedience lacked so much that is important to God – namely, an attitude of love from the heart.

Carry this thought today –  I OBEY BECAUSE I LOVE!
