BUILD YOUR HOUSE UPON THE ROCK
In our previous lesson, we studied Matthew 7:21-23 where Jesus warns us about the danger of confessing Him as Lord only with our lips. A confession that is merely verbal is inadequate. Jesus expects that we submit to Him as Lord. He wants us to give Him the loyalty and the obedience that His lordship requires. ‘Don’t expect to enter into the kingdom of heaven just because you say that I am your Lord. You have to do the will of my Father.’ The contrast in Matthew 7:21-23 is between saying and doing.
