Today we have many people saying “Lord” to Jesus Christ, we see people from the media, famous people saying “Lord” to Christ, but the ironic thing is that most of them do not change their way of being and are still under the curse of sin. There is also another group that is able to preach in the pulpits not to exalt the name of Christ but to be known by others.
In the Bible we find a passage where Jesus spoke about this, and He mentioned the sad end of them:
21 “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 who is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’
23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
One thing is us to vociferate that Christ is the Lord and quite another is to do the will of the one we say is our Lord. And this is why on one occasion Jesus asked the question: Why do you call me: “Lord, Lord” and do not do what I say? (Luke 6:46). We not only must seek to call our beloved Jesus “Lord”, but we must keep His Word so that He may truly be our Lord.
In that great day it will happen that many who had a great ministry, who made great stages in front of the world, who were famous, will come before Jesus telling Him all the good deeds they did in His name, but the sad response of Jesus will be: Go away I never knew you, evildoers!
Let us strive to be known by Christ, to remain in Him and in His Word so that on that day Christ may know us.
