CERTIFY

Acts 5:27-33; Ps 34 The Lord hears the cry of the poor; John 3:31-36

"Whoever does accept his testimony certifies that God is trustworthy."

Do we certify that God is trustworthy?

What in our life gives that kind of witness to others?

We certainly see the apostles in the book of Acts doing their part.  They are standing in the fire of opposition and refusing to stand down and be silent.  They are loud and clear about what god has done not only in their life but int he life of others in the world.

Are we just as loud and clear in our witness before others?

Certification of God's trustworthiness means we let him lead.  It means we allow his words and actions to inform our words and actions.  It means that somethings are no longer options.  It means that Jesus is not just a Sunday fling but He is an everyday reality that empowers us and transforms us.  It means that every decision that we make now becomes filtered through Him, his love, his demands, his commands, his invitation.  Everything!

We can no longer just pick and choose when we want Jesus to take the helm.  He either is or isn't.  No piece meal.  No cafeteria style faith.

Do we certify that God is trustworthy?
