It Just Don't Look Right

A Fashion Faux pas to say the least
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints

Ephesians 5:1-3 NASB 

No Place For It

Have you ever seen something that just doesn't look right? Maybe it doesn't look natural. Usually, these things can be spotted a mile away. 

Take, for instance, this shoe. Clearly, the elements of this shoe do not complement one another. It's a real hodge-podge of styles & colors. 

The same is true of the Christian. A Christian who is associated with immorality, impurity & greed is a mismatch. There is no room for it. Dan Roberts put it this way last Wednesday night:
These are the kinds of things that not only kill our testimony, but they lead people straight to hell. If we are making Gods testimony unreadable to those around us, then what we are doing is doubly wrong.
 Hypocrisy is a serious charge against the Church. It may hold no bearing on Christ, but it should definitely be a concern for His people. We need to look into the mirror of God's Word & make sure that our look backs up our talk.
