Workers of Lawlessness
On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?' And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.'.—Matthew 7:22-23
There is a day coming. That day. The one where our time and this world will come to an end. And it appears that those living have an opportunity to plead a case to the one who begins and ends all things—the Lord God. But they present a hopeless case. And their evidence? The verbal approval to deads they have done—prophecy, exorcism, and miracles. Yet the Lord's response is startling, "I never knew you." So why this response from God? Well, because there is a difference between knowing about God and intimately knowing God. It's the later that God is after.
DO THIS: Know God today, before it's too late.
PRAY THIS: God, sometimes I pretend to know you. Could you make yourself known to me?
