Bad Behavior

The unrighteous heathen are quick to point to the flaws of “supposed Christians”….. and the situation is even worse when such Christians are very active for God in witnessing and testifying.
But nowhere in the Bible does it say that Christians are sinless…. in fact, realistically, all true Christians are in a state of transition as the Holy Spirit works on their character flaws, temperament and personality…… the main difference between the true Christian and the unrighteous heathen is that the true Christian is SUBMISSIVE towards God, REPENTANT towards sin and HUMBLE towards other people.
And let’s face it ….. these are NOT “qualities” that are popular with the world’s population.
Culturally, PRIDE is the order of the day……and if you want the ‘respect’ of the populace….. Arrogance and Attitude are highly prized….. the public embraces the ‘bad’ boy (as long as he is not too obnoxious)….. notice how REBELS are admired….. and it’s no coincidence either because Satan is the original author of rebellion.
No my friends humanity HATES “submissive” and “humble” …. such persons are despised from the cradle to the grave….. and yet, from God’s point of view, it is these despised people who are the most precious to Him.
“For thus saith the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy, I dwell in the high and holy place with him also who is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” ISAIAH 57:15
Far… far too many people are not really humble before God….. even many that call themselves Christians…. and it is sobering to realize just how much God hates the “pride and arrogance” of humans…. who are, from the eternal point of view…. nothing but dust…..
Do you have an inflated view of your own importance ?
Read John 8:38 – 49 to find out who is your real father and why you think the way you do.
