or for the praise of God? When Jesus
was speaking here this was the climax of three years
of teaching, healing, miracles and we read that many
believed in Him but they did not confess Him.
Let me make it very clear that you can believe in Christ and not be a Christian. You can believe in Jesus Christ but not be saved. We just read that many believed but they would not confess Him for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
Tithing is an outward confession that God has your heart. Jesus said where your heart is so is your treasure. When a person is tithing it is a public confession that God has first place in your life.
On the Day of Pentecost when Peter was asked what shall we do? His answer was
“Repent and let everyone of you be baptized” Acts 2:38.
“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” Psalm 19:14 (NLT).
Thoughts become words and words become actions. How you walk and talk plays a huge part in confessing Christ.
Bravely live for Him!
