Isaiah 51:2 (KJV) “Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him”.
This conversation ensued between Bob and Richie as they surfed the internet.
Richie: Bob, have you seen the latest video making rounds on social media about that popular Pastor? I didn’t expect this from him, he is such an eloquent preacher who commands a great following.
Bob: Are you just knowing that he lives in immorality, cheats people, and does anything at all that will add more money into his bottomless pockets?
Richie: I am surprised! How does he combine God’s work and all these evil vises?
Bob: have you not read about Jesus’ teaching about the Scribes and Pharisees? We will always have people like him around.
The Scribes and the Pharisees were Abraham’s children by race, but their deeds betrayed them. While Abraham got God’s recommendation as an example to follow, they got multiple rebukes from Jesus and were never to be followed.
This was Jesus’ testimony concerning them, “the scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not” Matthew 23:2-3 KJV.
Which of these describes you? Repent, if you are like the Scribes and Pharisees. Remember that nothing is hidden from God’s face; he knows who you truly are and he is the judge.
Prayer: Ask the Lord for help to be an example of believers in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, and in purity.
