“Why do you call me Lord, Lord, and do not the things I say?” (Luke 6:46)
Many people speak of the Lord and frequently talk about praying, but hardly know what the Lord stands for, stands against, or about the future He has for all.
It gets right to the point of self-service. “I want the Lord, but I want him on my terms.” For a large number of people the Lord is convenient and worthy of respect/honor, just don’t ask any of them to hear and heed what He says in those areas of life that are not convenient.
It’s a challenge to me to take inventory daily (cf. 2 Cor. 13:5). I fail frequently. Nevertheless to whom shall I go, otherwise? #bloganuary
