“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 7:21

TODAY’S WORD…

Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord’, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only one who does the will of my Father in heaven.”

– Matthew 7:21

 

REFLECTION…

When Jesus speaks, we would do well to listen carefully!

As someone once said about many who glibly claim to believe in God (while living as if they did not), “Well, so does the evil one!”

It is not just believing in God that counts, it is also – emphatically also – doing His will that matters. We can’t go on telling the Lord, “Lord, Lord, I believe in You…but…”

What Jesus says, always makes sense, however are we prepared to listen…and to do as He says?

 

PRAYER…

Lord, Lord, I love You

and I want to do Your will without exception.

 

Lord, Lord, I believe in You

and I want to do Your will because I love You.

 

I believe in You, Lord.

help me overcome my unbelief.

 

Lord Jesus, help me entrust my entire life to You;

my family; my joys; my pain.

Help me deny myself from all that goes against Your will.

Help me follow You everywhere and in everything I do.

 

Lord, I know that You love me

and that by humbly coming to You and learning from You

I shall be strengthened.

 

Lord, Lord, I believe in You and I love You,

because You first loved me.

Please help me do Your will.
