Have you ever watched someone try to fake it? They went through all the right motions, tried to look the part, had the right lingo, but had never put in the work and the commitment to actually become a part of what they were pretending to be.
Jesus addresses such people with the rather direct words, “I never knew you. Away from me, you evil doers.” (Matthew 7:23) The point being made here is that the emphasis is placed on doing the will of the Father, rather than thinking up “God projects” as The Message puts it!
Bless God by being obedient to His will rather than thinking up our own religious endeavors. The point being made here is not what we do for God on our own, as to Whom we listen and obey. Keep your ears open today!
