Lookalikes

I went all the way through school with a set of identical twins,Jean and Joan. For someidentical twins reason I could always tell them apart. But most people couldn’t.

The twins sometimes played tricks on teachers and their friends by switching places or talking for each other on the phone. Teachers and friends alike got fooled. The twins not only looked alike. They had identical personalities, laughs and voices.

Unfortunately it seems as if the same thing’s happening in the church. It seems that many believers and the world are lookalikes. I know and read about folks calling themselves “Christian” whose actions and speech are lookalike’s with the world.

Has it become acceptable for church members to turn a blind eye to sin they observe or commit? Is it “okay” for church members to sin without accountability? Is it common for church members to hide behind the “I don’t want to get involved” excuse?

In the church today do we look more like Jesus or the world?

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15

    Apt analogy, Steve. Thank you for sharing – yes, we are called to be not as the world. Let us encourage one another.

      Yes, that’s what I want to do more. My blog is about giving God glory and encouraging the saints more each day and challenging us to live out of our true identity in Christ. God bless.
