Wrapping up his discourse on false teachers, Jesus confronts us with a scary thought.
Check out the passage in Matthew 7:21-23.
Frankly, this passage scares me.
There will be many people who will claim to be serving Christ, but the reality is this: they are serving their own motives instead.
God, who sees straight to the heart, will discern this, and Christ will deny that he knows them.
What scares me most is the fact that I know my own motivations. I try, but I know just how much I fail to serve Christ rather than my own selfish interests.
Thank God for his grace and strength, because there’s no way I could do this on my own.
Do you ever feel a sense of trepidation, like you might not be doing all you can for God? What do you do about that? Let me know in the comments.
