God is Making Me More


Being as genuine on the inside as I try to appear on the outside.

1. Pure; unmixed
As new-born babes, desire the sincere milk of the word.  1 Pet. ii.
3. Being in reality what it appears to be; not feigned; not simulated; not assumed or said for the sake of appearance; real; not hypocritical or pretended. Let your intentions be pure and your declarations sincere. Let love and friendship be sincere. No prayer can avail with a heart-searching God, unless it is sincere.

Webster's, 1st ed., 1828

My justification comes from God alone. He knows my every thought, wherever I am. I cannot fool God with insincerity even if I wanted to. I can be insincere with others, but I have no need to. It profits me nothing to gain their approval and lose right standing with God. I am therefore ready and eager to do the right thing with transparent motives, at all times.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55

This isn't that New Age "Positive Thinking" stuff, is it??
