“A Question of Lordship”

In concluding His sermon on the mount, Jesus said, “So why do you keep calling me Lord, Lord, when you don’t do what I say?”  Wow! Can you feel the tension in that question. It’s obvious, Jesus is looking for followers who will do what He’s told them to do. As followers of Jesus, we undermine our testimony whenever we rebel against His commands.

Here’s our focal passage from Luke 6:46-49 for this coming Sunday.

So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say? 47 I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. 48 It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built. 49 But anyone who hears and doesn’t obey is like a person who builds a house right on the ground, without a foundation. When the floods sweep down against that house, it will collapse into a heap of ruins.

The point is abundantly clear: The proof of Christ’s Lordship is found in obeying Him not in just listening to Him.

I hope you plan to be with us on Sunday morning. If you’re traveling, I hope you’ll join us online.

I’m also excited to announce that Dr. Ronald Kaluya from Uganda will be with us this Sunday. He plans to share some exciting updates regarding his work with Uganda Counseling and Support Services (UCSS) as they continue to present the hope of the Gospel wherever they go.

It’s going to be an exciting Sunday morning!

Seeking to both listen and obey,
