Greetings in the name of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ!
This morning we continue our journey through Romans 2.
Our topic: hypocrisy. We all are guilty of it to a degree. In fact, none of us lives up to even our own standards, let alone God’s. Thanks be to Him for His forgiveness through Christ! Augustine comments:
"It is not the being seen of men that is wrong, but doing these things for the purpose of being seen of men. The problem with the hypocrite is his motivation. He does not want to be holy; he only wants to seem to be holy. He is more concerned with his reputation for righteousness than about actually becoming righteous. The approbation of men matters more to him than the approval of God."
May we learn, by His holy word, how to not be hypocrites.
To the praise of His glorious name!
