Episode 61 is here! We talking about sincerity with special guest Philip Hall, producer, musician and my brother. We talk about being sincere, authentic, genuine in every facet of our lives. It’s something we must address because without true authenticity we are counterfiet in our walk with Christ. We are very aware of what we are doing but we are not aware of the sincerity we are doing it in. Really fun episode and I hope you enjoy it.
Also, the conversation goes further in our “A Little More Matters” bonus episodes for our Patreon family, for more info on becoming part go to www.patreon.com/realchurchmatters!
9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.
Sincere – free from deceit, genuine, pure
1 Timothy 1:5-6
5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: 6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the Lord.
feignedly – pretend to be affected by
Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.
Feigned – pretend, simulated, insincere
9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
Dissimulation – pretense or faking
1 Peter 1:22
22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
2 Timothy 1:5
5 When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.
