Counterfeit

My devotion reading today from Bro. Ed Matthews was from Titus 1:16 which says, “They profess to know God but with their deeds they deny him, since they are detestable, disobedient, and unfit for any good deed.” Those who profess to know God but in deeds deny him are counterfeit.

Counterfeiters do not usually work with dollar bills. There’s no value in it. No, they like $100 bills. They take their phony bills into a popular store, wait in a long line to buy $10 worth of merchandise and pocket $90.

Satan loves to counterfeit God’s children. Why? Because they are worth ten times what it takes to make them. Turn one of God’s children to evil and you’ve got the picture of a Christian with Satan living inside. The effect is devastating. Now, the person looks like a real Christian, but there’s something rotten there.

Sometimes, though, people don’t understand they are a part of Satan’s counterfeiting scheme. They don’t realize they have been won over to the enemy because they have deceived themselves. There lies the real danger.
