Do what I say

Today’s Encouragement is Luke 6:46 NLT “So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say?

Do what I say –

Jesus asked this and then taught the parable of two men who had built their houses, that is, their entire lives, families, wealth, all they had… one built on a solid foundation, the other on sand.

The solid foundation is the man who hears and lives according to the Word of God, as Jesus says. The sandy foundation is the person who hears… but doesn’t live according to Jesus’ words.

Notice they both hear the truth. Hearing isn’t enough! It is necessary, but only doing completes the process.

Is Jesus our Lord?  Then we will do what He says.  His wisdom, His truth is far superior to our ideas and thinking… we can trust Him, and we can follow Him.  We can do what He says!

“Yeah, but nobody’s perfect!”  That’s very true, my friend, some are very much less than perfect, but some are trying!  Now, we know it is our belief in Christ that saves us; faith alone!   And yet… Believing is a part of doing… we hear the Gospel and we either believe or not.  Friends we can choose to live according to God’s word, doing what He says, as best we can… and Christ always makes up for what we lack. (Matt 5:17)

Father God, we thank You for giving us wisdom on how to live in this life, how to be safe, blessed, wise and how to live according to Your truth.  Give us eyes to see and ears to hear Your truth, and willing hearts to do what You say!
