Some of our kids listen and some really do not seem to care. But, they almost always hear you.
And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
The word “Lord” implies obedience. It is possible that someone accepts Jesus as their Savior, yet does not live as if He is their Lord. Consider today what Jesus went through to secure your salvation. Jesus deserves the place of “Lord and Savior” in your life. God has always desired the obedience of His people. This verse provides a simple yet strong promise: obedience builds strong foundations that will last, disobedience builds without regard for foundation which will not last. Be obedient to Jesus and put the truth into practice in your life.
