Jesus said to his disciples: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.” Mt_7:21-29
This can actually be a pretty scary statement, beloved. You see, anyone can wear BMW medallion or even have BMW tattooed on his shoulder. But that doesn’t mean he actually owns a BMW.
In the same way, we can wear a crucifix around our necks, go to Mass every week, and say “Lord, Lord,” when we’re in trouble. But that doesn’t necessarily mean we actually belong to Jesus. As they say, we need to ‘put our money where our mouth is’ or ‘walk the talk.’ Jesus wants ALL of us. Not just the show. He wants the action too! What have I done today to put that LOVE in action? And if nothing, what can I do tomorrow?
