He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.”
Long before I came to the Lord as my Savior, I had been invited to a trip to Catalina Island by my father, this was a trip with the men from Church, now I did not come to Christ at that time, but something did happen that I have carried with me from that moment on. You see my father was not one to offer too much by way of compliments, but on the way back he was talking to his good friend from church, and I walked up and sat behind him only to hear my fathers reply to his friend when asking how come David did not come to church. My fathers reply not only floored me but had a huge impact on me, his reply was “David is not a hypocrite” and ever since that thought just would not leave me.
That was over 40 years ago, and yes, I did see hypocrisy just like sitting in a pew listening to a Pastors sermon on the sin we are committing when celebrating the birth of our Savior with a Christmas Tree all the while having 3 Christmas Trees right behind him right there for all to see on the altar, is there another name for that other than Hypocrisy.
Why Are Christians Hypocrites?
Not just Christians but everybody's a hypocrite. Christians would be the only ones that say we ... one of the only ones that say, "This is how we think we should live," when the truth is, we could never measure up. We don't ever measure up to God's standards. We don't even measure up to our own standards, which we lower so that we measure up, and we don't even meet them. It's kind of ironic. But everybody's a hypocrite.
The good news for Christians is that we are forgiven. That doesn't mean continuing hypocrisy, that means admit your hypocrisy. You're free to admit your hypocrisy. You don't have to hide it anymore. The thing about being a hypocrite is ... Like I said, we never measure up, then we try to hide it. That's where the hypocrisy comes in. Right?
Christianity should be the thing that says, "Yes. You don't measure up. We’re a hypocrite. Why else would there be a cross?" What's funny is, because of our pride, we try to hide that. "Oh, no, I'm not that bad." Just like Adam and Eve taking the fig leaves and trying to hide themselves. "I'm really not naked. I promise, God." And he says, "What are you doing?" What's beautiful in the garden, is what he does; kills an animal, and makes clothing for them.
It's a beautiful picture of Christ. What does he do with us? The Son dies so that we can be covered in his righteousness. Hypocrisy is trying to cover yourself with our own righteousness, and Jesus Christ says, "You don't have to. Let me clothe you in my righteousness alone."
Why are there so many hypocrites? Because we're all still trying to be something we're not. Here's who we are: a sinner who needs a Savior, who has a Savior, who wants to cover you in his righteousness alone. Throw off your robe of hypocrisy and throw on his robe of righteousness.
We become hypocrites when we pay more attention to our reputation than to our character, when we carefully follow certain religious practices while allowing our hearts to remain distant from God and we emphasize our virtues and others sins.
“We are the righteousness of God in Christ”
Gloria a Dios pastor David. Sera de bendicion para toda persona que decee encontrar el verdadero camino que es Cristo Jesus.

Pastor David we appreciate your programming and the very quick responses to our prayers and song requests. I am personally very thankful to Pastor David for his diligent prayers and advise to our son Henry Jr.
Pasator I am happy to let you know that since he accepted the Lord as his personal savior after your advise he has been drug free and his probation officer has advised us of your diligence in reaching out.
Thank you and God always bless you.
Luke 21:1-4 New King James Version (NKJV) "And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites.So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.”"
This morning as I opened up my email I received not only a very big blessing,but a lesson in humility, and a message letting me know that the Lord is not only using the ministry and the station, to bring the message to those in need and in places that we would not even think of otherwise.
On Tuesday I received a prayer request for a man and his family through the station, when I replied with the prayer the fellow sent me a photo of himself and family, they live in Ivory Coast along with a message stating that he could not even offer a donation and felt ashamed, I responded to him that a donation was not necessary, but to continue faithfully praying himself for his family. That I would continue praying for them and would pass along his name to Little Willie G so that he could include him in his prayer on today's program.
This morning I got a great lesson in humility number one, and a blessing that will live with me for ever, as I opened my emails I noticed a donation had been made via PayPal last night, the donation amount looked a little strange and I honestly thought there was a mistake on PayPal's end however when looking closer I noticed the donation was in the amount of $1.87 yes One Dollar and eighty seven cents. I did not recognize the email associated with the donation, however at around 8:30 this morning I get the following email "Pastor, this is Thomas, thanks again for your prayers, I was able to put together a donation for your ministry, you should receive it some time today they told me. I pray it can help someone in need like we are" I immediately double checked the email associated with the donation, and it was the same man who had written in asking for prayer.
The only thing that came to my mind was "the widow's two mites," I thank the Lord for these teaching moments that we receive, and think to how we complain about our lives and how are we going to meet tomorrow's needs, yet here is this man living under conditions that none of us probably have ever experienced yet he found it within his heart to think of someone in need.

"Pastor I have a praise report. A while back you guys prayed for my friend ana colunga she was in a coma. She's finally out of it and walking little buy little thank you guys for your prayers god is so good"
Praise God, yes He hears our prayers and is faithful to us always.
I received this praise report today, I have left the report intact.
