THEIR HEARTS ARE FAR FROM ME
Matthew 15:7-8 “You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.”
Jesus shouted at hypocrites. They are people who honor God with their lips, but their hearts are far from the Lord.
There are lots of outwardly religious folks.
“Gone to church all my life.”
“Sang in the choir since I was a teenager.”
“Have a perfect attendance record in Sunday school class.”
We should be involved in church activities, but sometimes we can get so caught up in attending services and doing certain activities that we forget the real reason we are doing these things.
Here’s a reminder.
Honor God with your heart, not just your lips.
WHO AM I?
Hello and welcome to my blog.
Thanks for taking the time to visit.
I was a medical missionary for almost thirty years in West Africa. Celestial Safaris are devotions about people, places and situations in Africa.
I've worked in Senegal, Liberia, Sierre Leonne, Ghana, Benin, Kenya and Zaire. I spent thirteen years in Nigeria establishing mobile clinics and another thirteen years in Togo.
I took time out to complete a Bachelor's degree in Theology, a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and a Masters of Science in Community Development.
I pray these devotions will bless and encourage you.
