This is only for people who believe the Bible to be God's word.
How many times have you said that you would begin living for God but never did? Have you ever committed to a Bible study and decided not to show up? Have you told anyone that you would go to church with them and did not? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you aren't being true to yourself.
In Matthew 21:28–31, Jesus used a parable to capture the essence of not being true to one's self. In the parable, we hear of a man with two sons, and he came to the first and said, "Son, go work today in my vineyard." But the son said, "I will not," but afterward he regretted it and went. Then the father came to the second son and said likewise, and that son said, "I will go sir," but he did not go at all. Which of the two did the will of his father?
Obviously, the one who actually went to the vineyard. The other, who said he would go and did not, wasn't true to himself. Such can be said of anyone who commits to a thing—whether it is doing a favor, establishing credit, going to services, studying the Bible, etc. He is not true to himself because he says and does not. Before a person enters into a relationship with the Lord, he needs to sit down and count the cost (Luke 14:26–33). There are obvious conditions to which one must obey if he wishes to continue being the Lord's disciple (John 8:31–32; 1 John 1:6–7; Luke 6:46).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
