Application of the Fighter Verse for November 27/28

Track 30 in Songs Set E – Matthew 7:21 Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. (Next week’s verse is also part of this song.  Matthew 7:22-23 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’)

Speaking and professing the name of the Lord Jesus is not the only evidence of genuine faith.  One who believes in Jesus must also do the will of God.

Is your faith evident to everyone?

Practical suggestions this week:

– Meditate upon this verse and pray for a deeper knowledge of God and the faith do obey His commandments.

– Explain this verse to your children.  Who is the one who obeys the Lord in Matthew 21:28-31? A man had two sons. And he went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ 29 And he answered, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he changed his mind and went. 30 And he went to the other son and said the same. And he answered, ‘I go, sir,’ but did not go. 31 Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes go into the kingdom of God before you.

How will you use this scripture verse in your life this week? with your spouse? your children? your family? your neighbors?
