Who doesnt cut it?
Are their people who do amazing things in Gods name that wont make it into heaven?
If amazing “works” dont cut it what does?
“Not everyone who says to me, Lord Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only those who do the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord did we not prophesy and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform miracles? Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me you evildoers.” – Matthew 7:21-23
Wow if people who “cast out demons” and give “prophesy” dont cut it what odds do I have?
Imagine working and doing works your whole life only to hear “get away from me” by the one you worked for and did all those doings for.
OUCH!! Can you feel the sting of futility yet?
Isnt it interesting that its the doers that dont cut it?
Isnt it odd that the super holy that do things that land the headlines are the very ones Jesus wont even say He knows?
So I must not have any chance at all right?
Check out John 15:12- In fact you could make this an awesome meditation:
“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you”
He didnt come to judge, He didnt come to condemn, He didnt come to make some Las Vegas style show of miricles- HE CAME TO SEEK AND TO SAVE THAT WHICH WAS LOST!!
Today make this decision- “I will Love others as He first Loved me.”
See how your day feels at the end!!
Dont worry- Be Grace-Full!!
