Is Belief Enough?

Is There More?: We Must Be Pure

If belief isn’t enough, what more is there?

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

Matthew 5:8

And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

Philippians 1:9-11

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Philippians 4:8

As the body of Christ, we must be pure. Pure in our actions, our thoughts, our speech. We must be pure.

Is There More?: We Must Be Biblically Correct

So you, son of man, I have made a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. If I say to the wicked, O wicked one, you shall surely die, and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from his way, that wicked person shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. But if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, that person shall die in his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul.

Ezekiel 33:7-9

In other words, you can’t be a Christian in speech only. You have to be a Christian in your actions. You have to correct sin, even if it offends. Look what God said about being a friend of the world.

You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”?

James 4:4-5

We can’t put the feelings of the world over or before the righteousness of God. God has to come first, or He is no longer your God. Whatever you put before God has taken His place in your life and has become your god.
