Heart Required

Matthew 7:21-23

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, only those who do what my Father in heaven wants.  On that Day, many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord! Didn’t we prophesy in your name? Didn’t we expel demons in your name? Didn’t we perform many miracles in your name?’ Then I will tell them to their faces, ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!’

 

It is not our actions alone that determine our salvation, but a condition of our heart.  Many will have done things thinking they are purchasing their salvation by their own actions but until they actually allow God to circumcise their heart and accept the sacrifice of Yeshua it amounts to too little too late.  Lord let my heart always serve You.  Do not let me feel any aggrandizement like the P’rushim and Torah-teachers of Yeshua’s time.  I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
