Sermon for 1/25/15

Welcome to Huntington Court United Methodist Church

3333 Williamson Road NW, Roanoke, VA 24012

We invite you to join us for Worship, Bible Study & Missions

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.   In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.                      (Matthew 23: 27-28, NIV)

Does what takes place on the outside match what is on the inside? 

Often the outside world looks at Christians and calls us hypocrites because what we claim doesn't match the way we live.  For example, we claim to love, yet they find us doing anything other than loving. In fact they often see us fighting amongst ourselves.

Here Jesus was challenging the religious leaders of his day. It was as if he was actually saying, "you look good on the outside; you put on a good show for others, but really that is all it is - a show."

My prayer for us as Christians is that we come to see that being a Christian is more than a designation or a title. In fact, being a Christian is a lifestyle - so let us live it!
