Do you look like Him?

A young man impregnated a young girl. When the girl pointed out to the parents that he was responsible, he denied it. He swore heaven and earth that he had nothing to do with her. She had to bear the shame of that pregnancy alone. It was tough. It wasn't easy. Her father disowned her, saying he couldn't be the father to a girl who not only sleeps around, but has no clue who impregnated her. Her mother took up the responsibility of taking care of her. Nine months later, she had a bouncing baby boy. The entire neighbourhood was in shock. For as you looked at the face of the beautiful baby boy, you would find yourself staring into the face of the young man who had denied the pregnancy. There was absolutely no controversy - that young man was the father!
Who do you look like? Who is your father? If I look into your spirit man, can I say absolutely without controversy that God is your father? When I look at your character, can I say you act just like your Father does? These days there are a lot of people who say they are Christians, walk about speaking 'christianese', do and act like they are second in command to the Holy Spirit but have absolutely no regard for the One they call Father - By their fruit you shall know them (Matthew 7:16-20) They have taken God's grace for granted.
I'm not talking about those who love and fear God but fall occasionally - we are all a work in progress. But if you live life simply because you think 'grace' covers you, and your name is permanently in the Book of Life, yet have no regard for God, then you are not the child of the Father. If your character depicts acts of the devil, yet you are quick to lift up holy hands in church on Sunday, then you are not the child of the Father. If I can only see signs of you being a Christian on Sundays, or behind your phone/computer keyboard, then you are not the child of the Father.
Again I ask - when I look at you, will I see the face of God, the Father? Do you look like Him?
John 5: 19 (NKJV) Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. By sister Deby
