Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
Possibly I should have titled this “relationship” as this is exactly what gives the follower of Yeshua that overcoming edge. It is not what we say or what we know; it is what we do with regard to the King of Kings. How do we relate and walk with and let Him govern our lives? Do we know His voice, have we been born from above and been baptized into His Holy Spirit? This Holy Spirit baptism is a baptism of spiritual fire that actually changes one’s life to follow after the King rather than our own self-centered desires. In my own experience, it has been an exciting journey. When we meet Him, whenever that day comes, I want to hear, “Well done” and not “Depart from Me” I want to know Him and be motivated in my daily life by Him, the alternative is too dark for me to contemplate.
