Topic: Teach Thyself! Judge Thyself! [Tuesday, October 31, 2017]

Basic Scriptures: Romans 2: 16-24

Hypocrisy is “claiming to have moral standards or believes to which one’s behavior does not conform.” It is pretense! In fact, the ancient Greek word for HYPOCRISY comes from the word for a stage actor or one who wears a mask.

It is not necessarily the fact that they sin that makes men/ women hypocrites, it’s the fact that they don’t acknowledge it. They don’t admit that their lives contradict what they say. They are not authentic but impostors!  Consider this:

A dentist may tell his patients not to eat candy (sweet), but he/she goes home and enjoys sweets. A pastor can declare fasting, but he /she eats and eats and eats! A policeman/woman can warn a crime, but secretly commits or sponsors crimes! When you call yourself a vegetarian but secretly eats meats above all else, you are a hypocrite! Hypocrisy is when you forgive in the daylight but remain bitter at night! Hypocrites teach one thing and live the opposite.

In a sense, we are all hypocrites because nobody is perfect, but deliberate hypocrisy is poison! Our emphasis today is that you must be an example in whatever you do and wherever you are. Let your light so shine that men will not doubt your God or your faith. Yes, you will be criticized if you are making progress in life and ministry, but never invite undue attacks on your lifestyle. Note Vs. 21-24 or basic scripture. Is there anything you are preaching against that you are practicing secretly?  THIS IS HYPOCRISY and the LORD hates it! Remember also that if you live in a glass house, you don’t throw stones.

Roman 2:21 says: “Thou therefore which teacheth another teach not thou thyself?” As 2017 ends and 2018 begins, teach thyself! Judge thyself! What heaven knows about you is more important than what people think about you! Read the Basic Scripture again and let heaven rejoice that you were born! Amen!

Prayer Points: Take any song of worship as led.

1. Pray about today’s word as it has touched you.

2. Repent from any way in which your life has brought shame to the name of God in the past.

3. O Lord, let my life advertise and declare Your glory.

4. O Lord, hide me inside your power and presence in Jesus name. Pray for leaders in your local church and nation.

5. All agents sent to paralyze my life, dry up today in Jesus name (Pray it very well)

Pray about today generally as led now.
