“And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; leave Me, you who practice lawlessness.’” (Matthew 7:23)

Here is the place of judgement.  There are those who walk with the Lord knowing Him, and those who, no matter what they are doing, do not know Him.  They will be separated, one from the other.  Heaven is filled with those who live outside of themselves and for others.  Hell is filled with those who live for themselves.  We have a little of both in this age, but there is the place of separation at the end of our days.

Lord, You know the direction I am heading.  I say I want to walk after You.  Help my words be the truth.  Then, let Your Word direct me so that I am not just one who hears the word, but one who actively cooperates with the Holy Spirit and does what You are saying.  You have made things very easy: listen to You, follow the narrow way, seek to do what is right in every situation and depend upon Your grace to complete all things.

Lord Jesus, what a mess we have made of things.  I too say and do many things that are not genuine and true.  Help me, Lord, to learn how to be more honest with myself this day.  Guide me in Your goodness to know that in You is all hope.  In You alone is my eternal future.  Help me to practice the law, learn how to love my neighbor, and humbly walk with You all the days of my life.  Amen.
