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.
Many speak highly of Jesus Christ and the Christian Life. But when you look at their actions and the way they live their lives, they are just like the world. This is opposed to Christ Jesus! God knows their heart and if they do not die to themselves and be born again, they will hear the words "I do not know you" on the day of judgment.
Are you like the Pharisees? They thought to be acceptable to God because of their religious practices. They thought to be better then "the sinners". They thought to be righteous in God's eyes and "the sinners" not worthy to God. Is your heart condition this way that your works, your ministry is the thing that makes you acceptable to God? Or do you see yourself to be a wretched sinner, not worthy of His presence and forgiveness?
"See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant." Jeremiah 1:10 KJV
Did you change (immediately) after you were baptized? Or are you acting the same as before your baptism? If you are the same you might be one of the vipers John the Baptist is talking about in Luke 3:7.

Are you His servant, slave? Does your life revolve ONLY about pleasing Him?
We are more than conquerors in our faith that Jesus Christ is alive. The result of your salvation; your trust in Him, is that you love Him, thus you obey Him. As a result of this your mind is set on the Holy Spirit and not on the world. Ask yourself these questions: 1) Do you speak Jesus Christ? 2) Do you belong to Jesus Christ?
