If we expose the comparison we will...
EXPOSE THE FAKE
Philippians 3:10–14 (ESV)
that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead. 12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
FAKING PERFECTION LEADS TO STUNTED GROWTH!
Fake faith means no fear of God & this always leads to a dead end
What is fake faith?
Acting like Jesus is the center of your life AND that you are perfect when in reality He is no part of anything outside of Sunday
WE HAVE TO STOP PLAYING A PART AND BE APART OF WHAT GOD IS DOING
It’s not about perfection it’s about a position
EMBRACE YOU AND YOUR POSITION
Psalm 139:14 (NLT)
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
Hebrew word for made is plʾ (pa-lay-madoll-of)
to separate or to distinguish
God made you and He makes no mistakes
• You are beautiful, you are smart, you are more than enough for God’s grace - and you are unfinished
Who are we and what is our position:
Romans 8:1 -- "There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
1 John3:2 -- "Beloved, now we are the children of God"
Philippians 3:20 -- "For our citizenship is in heaven."
Ephesians 2:6 -- "He has raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in heavenly places, in Christ Jesus.
1 John 4:17 -- "as He is, so are we in this world."
EXPOSE THE COMPARISON AND THE FAKE IN OUR LIVES AND LET’S BE HIS CHILDREN ALL UNIQUE AND FULL OF HIS POWER WHO WALK IN A DAILY AWE AND DEVOTION TO ALPHA & OMEGA THE ON TRUE KING!
What to do:
We kill the idols of comparison and fake by addressing it (maybe we don't hangout with people who cause us to compare / maybe we don't watch shows that cause us to be something we are not / maybe we ask someone to hold us accountable / maybe we up our involvement in His mission)
WE CAN'T WALK IN THE FEAR OF GOD IF OUR DEVOTION IS TO WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING OR SAYING! THAT'S AN IDOL WE ARE WALKING IN THE FEAR OF IDOLS - WE CAN'T WALK WITH GOD AND FOLLOW IDOLS!
The true god of your heart is what your thoughts effortlessly go to when there is nothing else demanding your attention.
To walk in the fear of God we have to kill the idol of comparison and insta living. One of the primary tactics Satan uses to deter people from seeking God is by fostering a sense of inauthenticity. The fulfillment of the great commission will only happen when we break free from the idol worship of comparing ourselves to others, which results in living a fake life. God encourages you to fully embrace your individuality and recognize your role as a child of God.
