“So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say?
Luke 6:46 (NLT)

What an indicting question. It is so easy to use a name and forget its true meaning. How many times have we called our spouse, “husband” or “wife” and yet treated them as if they were someone of little importance? We call someone our “brother” or “sister” and treat them with disrespect. We call someone, “teacher” and do not do what they tell us to do. And so Jesus asks, “Why?” Why do we do it? Why have we done it to Him? What drives us to behave in the opposite direction of what we profess to believe? Perhaps it is because we have grown accustom to Him and take Him for granted. Could it be that someone or something else has taken His place of importance? Maybe we have become so self-centered that we dismiss His authority in our life. It could be that we have let strong emotions come between us and Him. Whatever the reason, here is the next question, “Why not repent and let Jesus be your true Lord today?”

Dear Lord Jesus. Forgive me for calling You Lord and living as if it wasn’t true. I repent. I want to live for You. I want You to be the Lord of my life today.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
