We all know that Christianity is not a religion but it is a life style given by Lord our God. The Bible tells us that God always sees our hearts not our outer doings. The motive behind Our efforts have deep value in the eyes of God. It does not matter, how much we are attractive for the people who are watching us or we are doing so much hard work for the Lord. God will not judge us through external look but He sees inside. In the old testament in The Bible we can confirm it as well although the Word of God thousands of time tells us about the importance of inside purity.
In 1-Samuel 16:7, the second part of the seventh verse tells us.
“The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart…”
So, the thing should be clear upon Christian born-again believers that if our life is fake. Our heart is not pure with God as we show to others then we are in serious danger. There would no reward from God for us in this state of our life.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,”
The above referred verse is clearing us that God wants to have right motive inside our hearts as His word says. We are not to be forgery for others; but to be very real from the core of our hearts. We should be very careful that the work or task we are going to do; what kind of motive we have inside of us to do it. If we want to do because we want to be showing us to others or it just our emotional desire to make us happy; then it indicate, we are having the very wrong motive inside to do something for the Lord. But in spite of that we have reason to do that work that “it is God’s will that is why I am doing this; no matter it makes me happy or not; I have to do it,” it indicates that we have correct motive inside us to do something. For getting good heart and motives from God; we will have to spend time God through prayer and fasting and through reading and meditation upon the word of God, without it is not possible. So, stop walking wrongly with God and start walking God as He wants so that He could bless us abundantly as He wants, not as we desire. God wants to see us happy and blessed in our life that is why He gives His good instructions to spend our life as a word of God because He knows what the best is for us.
