"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 V21

"Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works is dead." - James 2 V17

Since the Christian faith was formed there have been many, and still are, people who are active members of a church, or people that perform signs and wonders, and people that appear very religious, but they are not born again of the Spirit. Christ will say to these people, 'I never knew you'. What a tragedy it will be for these people who never were converted and they were only deceiving themselves. The book of James says our faith ought to produce fruit and if it does not then it is dead. Now the Bible is very clear about salvation by faith and not by works, and it also teaches that true faith will produce fruit. Let each one examine their heart and their relationship with Jesus. Make sure our actions are truly the will of our Saviour and we are serving Him faithfully. Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour and is He the Master of your life? Meditate on this and make sure you know today which side you are on. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ 

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
