EXPOSITION:

The Jews were people who had special relationship with God. They were adopted by God; they had excellent pedigrees and could boast in the fathers. They received the Law of God, and so knew His will. Hence, they saw themselves as guides (v. 19) to the world. They were in covenant with God, and from them, Christ, the Saviour of the whole world came! What a privilege! (cf. Rom. 2:17-18, 9:4-5) However, they were hypocrisy; merely religious but not spiritual!

This act of hypocrisy made the Gentiles to blaspheme God’s name because of them. Consequently, Paul redefined what it actually means to be a Jew: For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God. (Romans 2:28,29 NKJV).

So, a person may be very religious but lacking real relationship with God. Two persons may appear before Christ for His view on their daily walks; one takes pride in thoroughly keeping the traditions of his denomination and of elders, while the other genuinely demonstrates the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23).

What would Christ’s verdict be? We know that a person may be outwardly a Christian and inwardly something else! Therefore, reflect on the following two questions today:

1. What makes a person a true Christian?

2. How much does peer pressure from friends and co-workers influence our beliefs and behaviours as Christians?

PRAYER POINTS:

1. Lord, help me to change every inconsistent behaviour and attitude in my Christian life.

2. Lord, help me to be more concerned about pleasing You than pleasing other people.

3. Pray that through you, the name of the Lord will not be blasphemed.
