Not all who say Lord….Lord…….

Matthew 7:21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.

When I looked up for the meaning of disobedience, this is what I got: bad behavior, unruly, non-compliance, troublemaking and so on.   Having said that, let us see what Jesus has to say about disobedience, “He said, ‘Don’t flatter me by saying Lord, Lord, you can never get to heaven with fake praises, you got to obey.’” Today we see too much, I mean just too much disobedience among the church-going, Bible-reading Christians, there is not much difference between the world and them.

•    What do you say when a born again believer accepts a job that demands him to attend work on Sundays and thereby compromise God? Did not God command "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy?” (Exodus 20:8)

•    When you allow your family member to ride a scooter or drive car before the eligible age of 18, is it not disobedience?

•    To deliberately and purposefully oppose the will of God is to make God your adversary. If  you are a Christian and you propose to marry a person of other faith, then this is flagrant, brazen disobedience, God has already made His will known  through His Word, don’t expect His blessings while disobeying His commandments.  Someone needs to hear this.

•    There are many who know the Ten Commandments; yet they are into adultery.  They may say, ‘Yes, I know, but my wife is a devil and she does not understand me, so I am friendly with my colleague, who is like an angel.’  No amount of excuses would do any good.  You are into adultery and that’s it.  Face it and also get ready to face the consequences.  God would draw the sword against you.

•    When you take a one-way route to church and also tuck a 100 rupee note inside the hands of a cop for violation of traffic rules, what do you call that if not bribe and disobedience?  You can also be in the choir or worship team, no fun in serving while your works are dead.

•    Instead of buying soft wares, there are many out there uploading pirated soft wares, what do you call it, if not theft?  What started innocuously would take you down the path of destruction.  You can be very good, kind and courteous but those qualities are not enough, God’s expects obedience.  Do you hear me?
