what the “will of the Father” is and the results of not doing that.

December 14, 2008

Mat 7:21-23  Not everyone who calls me their Lord will get into the kingdom of heaven. Only the ones who obey my Father in heaven will get in.   On the day of judgment many will call me their Lord. They will say, “We preached in your name, and in your name we forced out demons and worked many miracles.”   But I will tell them, “I will have nothing to do with you! Get out of my sight, you evil people!”

 

We do the will of the Father when we worship Him, Praise Him, serve Him, and love Him,  that is also obedience.  Not everyone who says Christ is Lord is serious and faithful.  You have to be sincere in the relationship with Jesus, pretending is very dangerous.  Playing around with sin is dangerous and damaging to the relationship with God.  Not doing the will of the Father produces distance and damage to our relationship with Him.

 

I found two quotes from Bible commentator Matthew Henry very useful. “Grace will bring a man to heaven without working miracles, but working miracles will never bring a man to heaven without grace.”  Note, It is possible for men to have a great name for piety, and yet to be workers of iniquity; and those that are so will receive the greater damnation. Secret haunts of sin, kept under the cloak of a visible profession, will be the ruin of the hypocrites.
