Spit & Polish Christianity


They (Religious leaders) talk a good line, but they don’t live it. They don’t take it into their hearts and live it out in their behavior. It’s all spit-and-polish veneer. - Matt 23 v 3

Having spent all of my 46 years attending church, listening to 1000's of sermons, reading 100s of books, spending 2 years in Bible College etc. etc. One things for sure is that I know a lot about God and Christianity.

I can certainly talk the game but I struggle to live it out. I have collided with God's amazing Grace yet for some reason still feel the gravitational pull cover up rather than open up. Somehow I still intercept God's word, meant to find a home in my heart to change me at my core, and try to look like I have changed by working hard.

The end result isolation. Isolation from people because you are afraid to be found out. Isolation from God because you know you have been found out.

Written for me? - Written for us all, no mater where we find ourselves in our Faith walk. Will we ever learn to let go and just trust Jesus?

Thank you for your words.

We have the ultimate light source that shines 100% percent glory every day non-stop that we can always be guided by. The perfect example in & is the Saviour.

Isolated because you are afraid to be found out ? Isolated from God because you have been found out ? Please expound upon that more please.

God bless!
