There comes a point in every christian’s life when they have to decide if they are going to be a practicing christian or just a performing Christian. What’s the difference? You know. Are they going to seek to be like Christ every day, or are they going to settle for performing only on Sundays? Yes, there comes a point where every man and every woman of faith has to decide if they are going to “go to church” or “be the church.” This devotional takes a close look at Jesus in the Book of Matthew, and highlights what christians can learn from Jesus when He was in the same type of situations we find ourselves in today. Readers are challenged at the end of each devotional entry to do something that makes them more like Christ. Some challenges may be harder than others, but every challenge is worth completing and mastering in order to be who we say we are in Christ.
