What you say and what you are are two different things.
Many people say and make claim to be Christians and then they live like the Devil. Who are they kidding? Not God.
How does God see your heart when He looks down from Heaven. God knows if your sins are forgiven. God knows if your heart is clean. God knows what you really are. The preaching of the cross brings a new moral standard into your he...art and thinking. It s called holiness which is a new way and a new life. A Christian is a Christian because Christ morally changed the heart and soul into a child of God.
The moral holiness of a child of God comes from the Spirit of holiness that resurrected Christ from the grave. Holiness of character is being the man or woman that God morally made you. Holiness has nothing to do with what you say. Moral Holiness has everything to do with what you are. Christians are not Christians because they say they are Christians. Christians are Christians because they are created by God with a moral righteousness and moral holiness that comes by the Saving Grace of God.
What you say and what you are are two different things. Many people say and make claim to be Christians and then they live like the Devil. Who are they kidding? Not God. Christians have a God-given standard of morality in their hearts that the natural man can never have or obtain without the person of Christ. Without this moral gift from above men can say anything but it doesn t actually mean what they say is reality. Saying you re a Christian doesn t mean you re really a Christian. The only thing that can make a person Christian is the moral power of Christ who resurrected from the grave.
