Mistaken Identity

Last night I caught the last half of the Blue Jays' game against the Tampa Bay Rays. It was a last-minute decision and I went out for dinner following the game with Gabe Gross, former Blue Jay, who is now with the Rays. Usually I try to request my credentials at least 24 hours before game time but last night circumstances prevented that.

When I picked up my VIP Pass at Gate 9 my affiliation was listed as BASEBALL CHAPEL. As many of you know, I resigned from BASEBALL CHAPEL over two years ago. Last night I was walking around the "bowels" of the Rogers Centre as DAVID FISHER of BASEBALL CHAPEL instead of DAVID FISHER with EPISTLE SPORTS MINISTRIES. Mistaken identity.

Many people move around, parading themselves as someone they're not. They put on a false front, a phony face. They say they are one thing but in reality they're something completely different.

People pretend to be Christians, followers of Jesus Christ, but they have never had a life-changing, salvation experience where God, by His Son, transforms an individual and gives new life.

What about you? Are you pretending to be someone that you're not! Let's be real! If you're a believer, live like it. If not - I'll pray that you truly become one of His.
