Four Bad Traits – Sunday Thought For The Day
Following are four behavioral traits that I have observed in persons walking in cloaked disobedience to God. They may be perfunctory church attenders. That is to say they go to church, but they either outright reject or willfully ignore biblical instruction. We are told to examine ourselves to see if we be in the faith or not. If we are repeatedly practicing one or more of the following traits with no sense of shame or conviction we are in spiritual trouble.
1) When people say their faith is personal and they keep it to themselves; more than likely that is because they do not have biblical faith and it is entirely possible that they are not saved. Saved people love to share their faith and they love to share about the Word of God.
1 John 1:3-7 KJV
3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
