“Consistency! How much we need, to run a measured pace…

To live the life  of which we speak, Until we see Christ’s face.”

Have you ever met someone who have traits you thought should mark a Christian but then found that the person had never met the Saviour? It’s not all that unusual. Sometimes people who do not know Jesus keep their own moral standards more consistently than some Christians keep God’s standards.

The prophet Jeremiah ran into a group like that –  and he passed along to us a valuable lesson from observing them. They were a nomadic people  called the Rechabites, and Jeremiah used them as an example of obedience. Although they were not among God’s chosen people, God commended them for their obedience.

Even today we see unsaved people follow the morals they’ve set, while some Christians are not being obedient to their Lord’s commands. God hates our disobedience. Let it not be said of us that the “Rechabites” of our day are more obedient than we are.

Although I have spoken to you,… you did not obey Me. -Jeremiah 35:14
