I have a question for my Facebook family and friends. Do you truly seek after God? Do you seek after him the way you seek money by going to work everyday, or seek the happiness of your spouse by the little nice things you do? All too often I see people who think religion and faith is something you check off on a ballot box somewhere. When someone in the family dies, they know how to answer when the hospital chaplain asks which religion the family follow. Yet, on any other day, they act, talk, and walk just like any other unbeliever out there.
Jesus gives us a strong warning in Matthew 7. “21 “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. 22 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?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”
Choose for yourself, this day, who you will serve. As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
