Luke 6:49 But he who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation; against which the stream broke, and immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great."

God, please help us to do what you have told us and not what is "easy." Let us do what is right even if we are laughed at or condemned. Help me to continue to change, forgive me when I stumble and help me as I try to walk close with you.

If that is not the truth! Oh Lord forgive me for my revolving sin and commit me to change for the better and set out to do only what you commandeth.. Amen

This is one of many verses in the Bible that tells us flat out, if we call Jesus "Lord", then we need to obey what He says in His word! The very next verse,47 says, "Every one who comes to me hears my words and DOES them." The proof that we belong to Jesus is do we prurpose in our heart to please Him? There may be times when we fall away for a short while, but a true child of God will come back to Him! God loves us and wants our hearts and lives to reflect our love for Him! Romans 12:1-2 :)

This challenges us not to live the "double life" as it were.... When the Lord Jesus says this, He is challenging our hearts and saying why do we follow His will on a Sunday but not during the rest of the week? Thats how I see it anywayz, really challenging!!

im sorry Lord plz forgive me


Man would rather do almost anything else than surrender himself to God. His natural mind rebels at the thought of submitting to God's law. Therefore men have substituted their own laws and customs for God's commandments, thinking they can still receive salvation by only believing in Christ as their Savior.

Mark 7:7-9
They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men. "You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men." And he said to them: "You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions!"

Our actions are an outpouring of what is in our hearts. If we do not do what God tells us to do, then do we really take His Word to heart? And if we do not take His Word to heart, then do we really love Him?

Obedient is the key to breathrough in prayers.

This is a harsh reality. We all want the blessings, but want to follow the beat of our own drum. This is a great verse to meditate on and look introspectively into what we are doing as Christians.

we go to church, we may even sing in the choir, serve as one of the members but if we cannot commit to him in all things, then it is a shame, he will say he does not know us.

What a wonderful teacher Jesus is! Whenever He wants His hearers to understand a lesson, He uses everyday experiences to explain His truth. The crowds had gathered around but Jesus looked straight at His disciples and began to teach them. I am sure the crowd were following His teaching as well....wouldn't you? He was saying to them that they should not call Him Lord, if they were not prepared to do whatever He was telling them to do. What does a person look like who does what Jesus commands? Jesus tells them about two builders - one who lays a solid foundation and one who builds with no foundation. We are to be like those who build on a solid foundation - a foundation firmly entrenched in the Word of God. We should not be content with the 'milk of the Word' but rather to devour the 'meat of God's Word'. Only then, will we truly know what God requires of us as to how we should live, and only then will we be able to weather the storms of life and remain firm and steadfast in our faith. The question we need to ask ourselves is, "Am I building my life on Jesus, the Rock, or am I going to sink when the storms of life engulf me?" Let us make every effort to grow into maturity in Christ.

The good news for me in this passage is that Jesus is the Lord. He is the only one who determines who has done what he has asked. I look around at people who claim to be Christians and i have my doubts. The good new for them is that Jeus is the Lord. He is the only one who determine who has done what he has asked - not me. When I look around and make judgements about who is doing what Jesus has asked, be sure that Jesus is asking me, "Just what part of making judgements is doing what I have asked?"

So very convicting.....

It's time to listen.

Psalm 22, My God, my God, why have you foresaken me? Why are you so far from saving me? So far from the words of my groaning...Oh My God, I cry out day by day, but you do not night, and am not silent....

The good man out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil man out of his evil treasure produces evil; for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

God has given us the perfect way to tell if someone really believes in Him -- it's not by what I say about Him, it's how I live for Him!! Life here is temporary, but the reward of living for God is Eternal Life with Him!! There is no greater joy! Praise His Holy Name!!

We call on Jesus and expect him to answer us, but we don't want to follow Him. Why should we expect Jesus to do our bidding when we won't do His bidding? It is a narrow road and hard to stay on.

This is very true stuff!! SERIOUS !! People better Heed his coming back now!!

There are some who claim that Jesus Christ is their Messiah and saviour and that God the Father is their God, they have God's word written in the Bible if they chose to read it and in many countries around the world we have freedom to worship and grow in knowledge of our Lord.
Some people claim all the above and yet they do not live lives that echo what they claim. Obeying God is like building a house on a strong, solid foundation that stands firm when storms come. When life is calm, our foundations don't seem to matter. But when crises come our foundations are tested. My friends, be sure your life is built on the solid foundations of knowing and trusting Jesus Christ.
