Dear Friend in the Lord,
God’s Will: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that calling Him, “Lord, Lord” is insufficient to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. We are to seek and live God’s Will with a more discerning heart, and not take God’s Love and Goodness for granted. Pray for the wisdom to love and serve God more wholeheartedly.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘’It is not anyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord,” who will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven. When the day comes many will say to me, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, drive out demons in your name, work many miracles in your name?” Then I shall tell them to their faces: I have never known you; away from me, all evil doers!
‘Therefore, everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on rock. Rain came down, floods rose, gales blew and hurled themselves against that house, and it did not fall: it was founded on rock. But everyone who listens to these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a stupid man who built his house on sand. Rain came down, floods rose, gales blew and struck that house, and it fell; and what a fall it had!’
