“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father in heaven. (Matthew 7:21)
Jesus, help us make you Lord of our lives in deed as well as in word.
Many will say to me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name, cast out demons in your name, and done many wonders in your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matthew 7:22-23)
Jesus, please help us by your Holy Spirit to live within the boundaries your Father has set for us to live in.
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. (Matthew 7:24-25)
Jesus, you are our rock. Help us to build only on you so that we may endure.
But everyone who hears these sayings of mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” (Matthew 7:26-27)
Lord, so much that seemed magnificent and strong is being swept away in the flood of ungodliness sweeping through our nation and your church.
And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. (Matthew 7:28-29)
Jesus, even today people are astonished by your teaching and your authority. Help the leaders and teachers and people of the Episcopal Church submit to your authority and know you as Lord as well as Savior. Thank you.
