Titus 1:16

"They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient, and unfit for doing anything good." NIV

"They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate." KJV

Many people claim to be committed to God, to be true Christians, and on the surface their lives seem to be very Godly. However, if a discerning Christian looks beyond these exterior appearances and sees the true fruit of these professing Christians, very ungodly things begin to make themselves known. There are wrong thoughts, unforgiveness, judgment of others, feelings of spiritual pride and status. These people will usually fail to see their own spiritual failings and exaggerate the spiritual failings of others. They become defensive if they are confronted with their own problems. For these Christians who claim to know God, they are only fooling themselves, because God is exposing them to His true children. This is the time for His true children to pray for these people. They need spiritual cleansing and renewal to get all the ungodliness out of the way of true communion with our Lord.

Heavenly Father, forgive us if we are among those who claim to be good Christians, yet we harbor wrong thoughts, attitudes and feelings. Help us to repent and forsake all wrongs to walk in holiness and righteousness as Your children. We pray this in the name of Jesus our Lord, Amen.
