good question


Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?

Luke 6:46 (ESV)

Good question, isn’t it?  What Jesus was asking makes perfect sense.  If some one is your lord, then you are their servant.  A servant does what the master, or lord, says whether he/she is one by choice or by force.  If we have fully submitted to Christ, if He is our Lord, then why would we not do what He says?  Why wouldn’t we do what His Word commands?  Jesus also said,

If anyone loves me, he will keep my word…Whoever does not love me does not keep my words.

John 14:23a, 24a (ESV)

It’s pretty simple.  If we truly love Christ we will obey His word.  We will do what He says.  If we don’t, we won’t.  It’s a great heart check.  Let the Holy Spirit take a look at yours right now.  What is He saying?

I’m reading Crazy Love right now.  There is so much to say.  I’ll be reflecting on it for awhile.  If you are ready for a holy kick in the gutt, go buy this book.
