Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
I’ve seen great basketball players make thousands of baskets, rebounds, and assists, but they were never part of the team. They were more concerned with the name on the back of the jersey than the one on the front. They never seemed committed to the coach, the other players, or the fans that cheered for their team. This might be the type of individual Jesus is talking about in these verses – they did lots of things but it wasn’t to glorify God but to glorify themselves.
First we have to make Jesus Lord of our heart before we can make Him Lord of our words, our actions, and our lives.
