Matthew 7 — Discipleship

Being busy for Jesus doesn’t automatically qualify us for eternal life.  Saying “Lord, Lord” isn’t a golden ticket to heaven.  Listening to a great sermon or teaching a Sunday school class doesn’t even guarantee a welcome at the pearly gates.  It’s not our list of accomplishments for the Kingdom that will usher us into glory.

What Jesus wants more than anything is to know us and for us to know Him.  The word “know” implies an intimacy, a relationship, a friendship.

This coming Sunday, October 25th, we will be looking at Matthew 7:21-23 and Luke 19:28-44.  Let me encourage you to read those passages sometime this week.  Let’s make sure we’re disciples — not with our words and actions only, but with our whole hearts.

Songs we’re singing this week:

8:00 a.m. — “Go Make of All Disciples” and “O How I Love Jesus”

10:30 a.m. — “Our God”, “Every Praise” and “Holy Spirit”
