The Pseudo Christian

I am really loving the sermon series right now at our church. If you  haven't been reading my blog for a while I want to mention Sean Craig, from the band Phillips, Craig, and Dean is our pastor. We love it and feel so at home! I don't know why lately but I have really enjoyed taking notes and posting them on the blog for others to read. Who knows...maybe someone else need the "stuff" as much as I do?!?!? ;)

Last Sunday was titled "Pseudo Christian." There was a lot of words about how there are so many Christian who have learned to "fake it." We all have a past. There are some things each of us want to erase. Be honest with yourself, don't bury it and continue the "fakeness," it's not what the Lord wants.

God wants us to be honest with him. He wants us to be honest about everything, even our failures. If we are honest with God then we will be able to create an authentic relationship with him. The truth is though...if you aren't honest the true fellowship, the TRUE relationship can not and will not be created.

Like mentioned about we all have a past. We have to expose it, bring it to him. Once we have exposed it to the light God can erase it. We, as Christians see what we need to do, we know/believe what we need to do but ACTUALLY walking it is a struggle...

*I will note: this is so true to me and so fresh in my current spot in life. I know and I believe what the Lord is telling me but I am struggling with what to do next. I know he is with me by my side through every trial and EVERY triumph and I am so happy when my FIRST thing I do is PRAISE the Lord for what he has done...I can't help but smile when our 3 yr. boy turns to me and says "I am so happy God did that..." it's in his little mind that I love how the Lord speaks to me...*

We get upset when we can't be in control. We get upset and something  "small." Ask yourself...not why are you upset but why does this particular thing make me so upset? What's the root of this? As we get angry...do not sin!

We are to 1. confess 2. stay committed...and so important is to be honest with others. We are to be true and real...authentic with everyone.The references were:
1 John 1:5-6
1 John  1: 8
1 John 1: 9

Again, I pray you will take something from this small little recap of the message. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!!

  2. I really love this post because I am currently struggling with some emotions due to some things that some one has said to me over the past two months (could I be anymore elusive haha???). I have been debating whether or not I should tell her that she is making me feel awful, and your post makes me think that maybe I need to get it off my chest!
