10. The Phonies
Slide 10 of 10
Phonies may not behave badly. They may even seem loving and kind. But they are Phonies nonetheless.
Jesus called them out, saying, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven.”
Phonies may claim to be children of light, but they are still in “darkness.” Jesus calls them “lost.” The good news is, Jesus came to seek and save the lost, even in church congregations!
I am convinced our churches are full of phonies who desperately need Jesus. I lived as one for many years in churches, at Bible College, and even for a while in a revival ministry before I became a true Christ-follower.
The Lord wants His forgiven people to be faith-filled, free, full of grace, forgiving, faithful, and fellowshipping with one another.
The wonder of wonders is, God can, in Christ, miraculously change the worst to the best—all for His purposes and glory.
