DON'T BE A PHARISEE



Devotional Daily


Gal 2:16  Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 

DON'T BE A PHARISEE

Who were the Pharisees? They were people who attended Church regularly. They tithed, and Jesus praised them for their faithfulness in tithing. They prayed, and they fasted, and they fulfilled all religious ritual. And yet, they were not content, for their godliness was no more than a pretence.

Godliness can be mimicked for sure. Jesus condemned the Pharisees as hypocrites. Why was the righteousness of the Pharisees condemned by Jesus? Because they sought their righteousness apart from God.

Dear friends, please remember that Righteousness begins with GOD. Only God can make someone righteous.
So many people try to be godly by living their lives by the law. That is very wrong. You need to call on the same God Who created the universe. You need to believe His promise, and call upon the Name of Jesus Christ for salvation.

The Pharisees sought salvation apart from Christ. They seek righteousness through their own efforts. You cannot make yourselves righteous- but you can call upon God Who will make you like Him. The day that you bend your knee to Jesus Christ and, recognizing Him as both Lord and Savior, is the day you will be
saved. God Who looks at the heart responds to the sincere call by moving on the life of the believer.
