(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 7:21-23
(21) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
(22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
(23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
I SURRENDER IT ALL, OH LORD!
Brethren, conceptually, there is never a dull moment in human lives, a moment, whereby nothing is happening to lives; from the time of birth until the end of days on earth, there is always an action or reaction to human development: physically and spiritually, the transformation processing of human lives begin at conception, birth, youthful, adolescence, maturity and to death; but, how many times have we questioned our spirits to discern the intended purposes of Jesus Christ in our lives? maybe, not yet, or never; well! each and every soul born on earth has a purpose to accomplish, regardless of our national origins, ethnicities, genders or skin colors; their pathways through life are predesigned, determined before birth; many times, intended purposes of Jesus Christ for souls may be altered by parents, while transitioning on earth, due to the facts, that parents like to be in control, call the shots in their children lives, design career pathways for them, without discerning what the purposeful wills of Jesus Christ are for their lives; despite all that, in whatever field they find themselves, so long as their lives are meaningful to the service of humanity, heaven will not count them as worthless souls; therefore, regardless of where we work, the types of services we render to the world, let us give our best service to one another, know that we are on assignments for Jesus Christ, that there are greater rewards in heaven, for services rendered to one another on planet earth; subsequently, let us work the will of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior with truthfulness of hearts.
In the above text, Jesus said to the multitudes on the top of the mountain; Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. you see! we may call ourselves believers, read the scriptures, worship and praise our Father through Jesus Christ; if our faith has no works, it is a vainglory; cf. James 2:26; therefore, let us serve the Lord, as we serve one another diligently, with joyfulness of hearts, minds, souls, and strengths, have good sense of humor, smile, show love to people we come in contact with every day, that we care about them, what we have to offer; for though we physically work on earth, spiritually, we work for the purification of our souls, build mansions above, to inherit priceless eternal blessings; also, regardless of our duties and responsibilities on earth, if we work evil works, with dubiousness, craftiness, lies and deception; though we may qualify ourselves as believers on earth, in the eyes of humans, we cannot deceive Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, he knows what we do, cf. Psalm 69:5; on the day of reconciliation, he will view us as workers of iniquities, cast us away from his sight into the furnace of fires.
Dearly beloved, as humanity, we were placed on earth to worship our Father, enjoy his sustenance, and live happily thereafter; until the fall of Adam and Eve, their disobedience in the garden of Eden, the ground was cursed by our Father, we have to work for a living, though we till the ground for food ourselves, we still have to be grateful for his providence; for he makes the rain fall on the ground to bring forth its proceeds, nourish, and sustain our souls: notice this, when Abel worked, brought the firstlings of his proceeds before our Father, because of his respect, gratefulness, and undeceivable heart towards him, his offerings was accepted by our Father; on the other hand, Cain his brother's heart was deceitful, therefore, his offerings was not special, but worthless before our Father and was rejected; cf. Genesis 4: believers, the same concept goes with our service to Jesus Christ, our Father never changes, he is the same, today, and forever shall be; for he will bring every work into judgment. every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. cf. Eccl. 12:14; therefore, let us do the will of Jesus Christ, wherever we find ourselves in this world, be kind, tenderhearted towards people with diverse backgrounds, love them: serve the Lord with faithfulness, intergrities, and joyfulness of hearts, receive earthly blessings, crown of glories in heavenly places, be joint heir with Jesus Christ forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
