Your Symptoms?

A noted authority has shared lethal symptoms that you will want to examine yourself for. “Worldly-mindedness is as common and as fatal a symptom of hypocrisy as any other, for by no sin can Satan have a surer and faster hold of the soul, under the cloak of a visible and passable profession of religion, than by this…” (Matthew Henry).

So many just go through the motions of professing faith in Christ when it basically is little more than fire insurance – just something nice to have in case they need it. Their heart and love, however, are for the things of this world as opposed to the Risen Savior, who gave His life for us. What lights you up?

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” (James 4:4)
