Be Sincere

Php 1:10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;

That ye may be sincere – The word which we translate “sincere”, is a compound of the words for “the splendor of the sun” and “I judge”;

“Sincere” has the idea of a thing which may be examined in the clearest and strongest light, without the possibility of detecting a single flaw or imperfection. “A metaphor,” says Mr. Leigh, “taken from the usual practice of chapmen, in the view and choice of their wares, that bring them forth into the light and hold up the cloth against the sun, to see if they can espy any default in them. Pure as the sun.” Be so purified and refined in your souls, by the indwelling Spirit, that even the light of God shining into your hearts, shall not be able to discover a fault that the love of God has not purged away.

This world needs ‘real’ followers of Christ.  Live the Christ Life so that others will find only sincerity and truth in your character.
