"He who has ears to hear, let him hear". Great crowds came to see Jesus and hear Him speak. They also came to see the miracles. But only those who have faith and believe the Truth of His words are able to hear the Word of God and do it!. For the world His Words are parables that cannot be understood and put into practice.
We can hear Jesus' words and not be saved. We can pray earnestly and not be saved. The Pharisees did these things and Jesus rebuked them; even call them "a brute of vipers". If God's words do not cause us to change our ways, we have no part of the true church. There is a clear, true and sanctified church in Jesus' name. Members of this true church only follow Jesus Christ as their Lord, Savior and Authority,
Often we hear today the phrase: "I am not a sinner". We (the church nationwide) often believe that God will conform to what we see as acceptable as a society. Make no mistake: we are all wretched, undeserved sinners in the eyes of our Lord. Our only chance of salvation is thru the blood of Jesus Christ.
Why do we gather this morning in a sanctuary? Because you are saved? You see it as an obligation? You are curious about God's Word? Or you have no idea why, but something told you to go. One thing is certain; we are gathered to worship God. He called all of us here together, no matter what our background is, to share His vision (Word) with all of us.
Have you professed faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, but sometimes ask yourself if He is truly the One? Do not be discouraged by this, as even John the Baptist had the same doubt at one point (Luke 7:19). John's (or yours) faith was not failing him; he just needed strengthening and affirmation of his faith. When you doubt, pray for strength and affirmation from our God.
