Be Yourself

A pastor spoke that we are okay as we are and that each one is different and we should not try to be like someone else. Be who you are. I thought to myself, where is the rest of the message? We are to come to Jesus as we are and he will use us as unique chosen vessels, but we are given a calling to share the truth with the world. We are to be made new in the likeness of our savior, Jesus Christ. If we have an audience and an opportunity we are to glorify God and not man. The Pastor's message was humanism. We were born humans but we are to be reborn as sons of God.
Joh 17:16  They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Joh 17:17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
Joh 17:18  As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
In Christ Jesus we are called to be holy and separated unto him. We are given his word of truth, the Bible. By the Holy Spirit we are sent out again into the world with the message of truth.
1Jn 5:10  He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
1Jn 5:11  And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
1Jn 5:12  He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
1Jn 5:13  These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
Come to God just as you are and may the blood of Jesus cleanse you and the water of his word wash you and make you his beloved. May your future home be in God's kingdom and may all your family be saved from hell. Tell them the true story of Jesus.
