The Unquenchable Worshipper: Coming Back to the Heart of Worship (Worship Series)
By Matt Redman

Too good to be true.

Do you ever meet people who are just too good to be true? I do. Some folks I have an uneasy feeling about everything they tell me about themselves but it isn't anything I can put my finger on. They just don't seem real and I tend to take all they say with a pinch of salt. I long when this happens for something to prove me right or wrong about those nagging feelings.

As a Christian I am so glad that Jesus isn't like that. Over the summer I have been doing a lot of thinking about my position in Christ. I praise Him that the claims He makes are real and can be totally trusted. He is the Christ, the son of the Living God. He did die and was raised to life again. He has called me to Himself and 'by grace I have been saved through faith, and that not of myself, it is the gift of God, ...' I am so full of thankfulness that 'In Him I also trusted, after I heard the word of truth, the gospel of my salvation, I was sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of my inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.' (Quotes from Ephesians in the Bible)

So perhaps when I meet these people in my daily walk I need to remember these verses and praise God for His willingness to share Himself with me.
