Knowing His Name Is Not Enough!!!

Knowing The Name Jesus Is Not Enough!!!

Written by Apostle James R Winfree Sr,
In Heaven with Jesus,is only those who do what His Holy Father in heaven wants. On that Day, many will say to Him, 'LORD, LORD! Didn't We prophesy in Your Name Jesus? Didn't We cast out demons in Your Name Jesus? Didn't We perform many miracles in Your Name Jesus?' Then Jesus will tell many Christians to their faces, 'He Never knew them! Get away from Him, you workers of lawlessness! many of you did not obey nor love Me, But did what you wanted to do.'" ( Matthew 7:21-23,) ( Can you find what you are doing in GOD'S Holy Word? )
Saying, even proudly declaring, that 'Jesus is Lord' is not enough people. There are many, many Christians all around the world who profess to be lovers and followers of Christ, yet fail to understand the significant meaning of what the Lord Jesus Himself said in the passage above. In it, He declares that lip service and mere false church membership and tithe paying isn't enough.
Jesus Said you call Me LORD' LORD', But do Not the things which I say to you!!!
Christians as so many are, they often tend to rely on our own capacities. Some of them are masters at political correctness, thinking that we have it all covered since we know how to speak right. We know religious jargon and Christian terms such as "hallelujah" and "hosanna," and because they spend much time in human built church buildings or in small groups, they think the're fine in GOD eyes.
No the're not right in His eyes.
Yes, only the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross in Calvary is enough to satisfy the requirements for our salvation. Yes, salvation is by grace through faith, and it cannot be attained by any human or flesh effort whatsoever. Yes, salvation remains a gift that is given to us only through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
However, merely stopping at knowing that Jesus is LORD is not enough. We must decide to go further by denying ourselves and taking up our crosses to follow Christ, whom we so boldly declare our Love and Obedience.
"But You Are Saying, You Done so Many Things for Christ!"
We might say to ourselves that because we've served GOD and spread the gospel of Christ, we're doing well. What we fail to understand is that Christ's saving grace is not given for us primarily so that we could do things "in Jesus' Name." Rather, Christ's saving work saves us from the corruption of this world, and makes us decide to be set apart for Him Yes, inside and out.
Consider what our Apostle Paul said in Romans 7:21-25:
"I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. For I delight in the law of GOD according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank GOD, through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of GOD, but with the flesh the law of sin."
From this passage we realize that we are truly sinful and have no hope in ourselves: No matter what we do, we end up sinning because we are under the law of sin.
Jesus Christ, however, broke the power of sin and has Freed us, wretched sinners! Because of what He has done, we can "delight in the love, grace and mercy of GOD our Heavenly Father" and do what pleases Him. my spiritual family in Christ, this is what we should realize: Christ's salvation doesn't just make us want to do good; It changes us from the inside out.
We are a brand new creation in Christ, and therefore we will commit our lives to following Him, and not living the same way we did before He saved us: as a lawless people.
Calling Jesus as "Lord" simply means denying yourself, ridding yourself of the old you, and pressing on to Christ-likeness. Talk is cheap. Let's follow Christ with all that we have and are in Loving and Obeying Him. Amen.
We Are Leading All Souls To Our Savior Jesus Christ.
