Lk 13:22-30 "then will you stand outside knocking and saying, ‘Lord, open the door for us.’ He will say to you in reply, ‘I do not know where you are from. And you will say, ‘We ate and drank in Your company and You taught in our streets.’ Then He will say to you, ‘I do not know where you are from. Depart from Me, all you evildoers!’"
Once again, simply showing up is NOT ENOUGH.
Attending mass is NOT ENOUGH.
Service without prayer is NOT ENOUGH. We MUST have a RELATIONSHIP with GOD.
When we knock, we want HIM to know who we are.
There are others who simply show up, whom we do not know. If they knocked on our door, we would not let them in. Why do we ASSUME something different from GOD?
“Strive to enter through the narrow gate" - not the Wide Gate - not the Open Door - not the Everyone Entrance “Strive to enter through the narrow gate"
PRAYER ADORATION CONFESSION OBEDIENCE RELATIONSHIP
Let us be sure we are on a FIRST NAME BASIS with GOD.
Let us talk to HIM Every Day.
Let us include HIM in Every Thing.
Let HIM be the First and Last Prayer on our lips.
