DO YOU GIVE GOD LIP SERVICE?
Mat 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Giving God lip service means that a person who professes to know God; honors God by his/her words but fails to honour God with his/her deeds.
Lip service entails praising God by singing, praying to God, but denying Him by works. It is common in this modern generation for people to give God lip service.
They are good at praising God by singing or even telling about the goodness of the Lord but they do not honour God with their deeds.
The word of God tells us that they profess to know God but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient and to every good work reprobate (Titus 1:16).
Most churches are filled with multitude of people but majority of them are not true Christians, they are in the church building to give God lip service.
Even the majority of the choir members are used to giving God lip service. True Christians do not give God lip service, but they praise God in Spirit and in truth.
Christians who do not give God lip service honor God by the works. Their works provides a clear cut evidence that they have been changed on the inside and on the outside.
Those fake Christians who give God lip service do not love God. They give God lip service in order to be seen by men or to be praised by men but in the end it will be to their own destruction.
The Christians who are used to giving God lip service are fond of running away from the truth. That is why you find a person confessing himself/herself to be a Christian but when confronted about the sin which he or she is committing they start hating the reprover and depart from that person.
The gospel of Christ is about total repentance and holiness. If these people were truly born again, they would not hate the truth but embrace it, this shows that they honor God with their lips but their hearts are far from Him because they are unwilling to keep the commandments.
Examples of fake Christians who give God lip service are the Christians who live in sin. These are the kind of Christians who dress like hookers, gay professing Christians, porn watchers, and generally all sinners. Most of these Christians when confronted about their sin they will end up departing from the church.
Christians who give God lip service have not been changed and the truth is not in them, they are hypocrites and liars who are hiding in the church. If you give God lip service and you do not honor Him with your deeds you are deceiving yourself because God sees through us. God knows everything about us, we deceive ourselves.
If you are fond of giving God lip service and you are still living in sin it is time for you to change. Repent of your deeds and start a life that truly portrays you as a child of God. If you are whore start dressing modestly, if you are a sodomite stop being a sodomite, depart from iniquity.
The word of God tells us that the foundation of God standeth sure and let every man that nameth the name of Christ to depart from iniquity (2nd Timothy 2:19).
When you claim to know God and you give God lip service you are giving Christians a bad name. That is why Muslims laugh at us because our women are dressing like whores. If you name the name of Christ and you are living in sin, you put Christ to an open shame.
Let everyone repent and turn away from iniquity and the words that we utter let it reflect our genuine love for God.
