Keeping it Real

Good day all, I just want to know the reason why some people act different in church than they do out of church. Now I dont't go to church much but I am a very spiritual person who knows of God and the joy of having faith in the one and only Almighty God. Jesus has been keeping me going after 2009 because that was the worst year of my life, and my faith in God has kept me going forward in life but that is another discussion. Now about thoughs people after church do they not know God knows a persons true heart and mind He created thee, can you hide your thoughts, desires, or needs from Him, no. Be that as it may you must be true to yourself and to others before you can truely have Jesus in you and for you. We as humans are week but we can be stronge when we trust in God and walk like Jesus. God gives every man and women the choice to do His will or to try and do your own will and true believers know the difference in both choices. To be one with Jesus you must think and act like Him and walk with faith and trust in God treating and doing to other how you yourself would like to be treated from others. Deep inside us believers we know this to be true and yet with some of us as soon as we leave the church we well you know, are daily life creeps back into are spirits and where back to life as it was church is over. My mylot friend if you are this person or you know someone who is this person, say to that fellow servent lets take church with us and make are body a Temple for the Lord to walk in and out of church.

the fact that some people behave "differently" in and out of the church is a sign that they know how to behave as Christians. And since "in the church" other Christians could see them, they behave well. And when they are out of the church where brethren do not see them, they behave the contrary. it just mean that these people have not really come to embrace the fact that becoming a Christian is not about ourselves and other people. it is about us and the Lord. when we know that and live with it, then wherever we are, be it in the church or out, because we know that God is with us, we will behave the same.

I agree that many Christians act differently out of church than they do when they're there. I think it has to do with the depth of the relationship they have with God. When He is real and a part of your every moment, you are the same person day and night, in every setting. When He is just a peripheral part of your life, you "turn it on" when the situation is appropriate. I like your phrase "take church with us." If we were constantly aware that we ARE the church and a dwelling place for the Holy Spirit of God, perhaps we would all act differently, as witnesses to His glory.
