Are You a Christian, or Are You an Imposter?

Are You a Christian, or Are You an Imposter?
September 13, 2020
Passage: Matthew 7:12-29

A large number of people have convinced themselves that they are followers of Jesus - but they believe and live in ways which are totally contradictory to Scripture. Jesus gave us this teaching in Matthew 7:12-29 to challenge us to examine our own hearts, and to prepare/equip us to minister to "Christian Imposters."

  • Verses 12-14: Jesus' definition of a genuine Christian
    • Someone who is running the race (v. 12)
    • Someone who has properly started the race (vv. 13-14)
  • Verses 15-20: Imposter #1 (Claim to have started the race, but not on the course; no fruit)
  • Verses 21-23: Imposter #2 (Seemingly running the race, but "false start")
  • Verses 24-29: The Applications
    • HEAR the Word
    • DO the Word
    • Make the Word HEARD and DONE
