Lord, Lord...

As the adopted children of God, we are destined for the glory of heaven. But God will not force any of us into paradise. We have to freely accept His invitation and His grace to enter His reign. As Jesus tells us, our acceptance cannot be a collection of empty words. It is not just a matter of verbally acknowledging our faith in Jesus, or crying out to the Lord if we do not really want Him to rule us. Rather, we must open our hearts to being transformed by God’s Word. In other words, we must become obedient to His word, letting it change us.
