Question Jesus Asked[6]: Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say


Read: “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?” (Luke 6:46)

Examine: At one time Jesus went up a hill to pray and spent the whole night there praying to God. When Jesus came down from the hill with the apostles, he stood on a level place with a large number of his disciples. A large crowd of people was there

Jesus looked at his disciples and said many things, towards the end of the teaching Jesus spoke of a parable of two types of builders. Jesus started the section this way.

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and yet don’t do what I tell you? Anyone who comes to me and listens to my words and obeys them—I will show you what he is like.  He is like a man who, in building his house, dug deep and laid the foundation on rock. The river flooded over and hit that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But anyone who hears my words and does not obey them is like a man who built his house without laying a foundation; when the flood hit that house it fell at once—and what a terrible crash that was!”

Application: What we value most will be shown in our lives. We are an open book. It is impossible to say “Lord, Lord” and truly mean it without following through. Jesus spent whole night in prayer, prayer will become the most important thing in our life when we truly love the Lord.

Jesus asking the question why do you call me, Lord, Lord; teaches us very clearly that there is always a danger that we might be deceived, that we end up doing lip service and at heart there is no commitment and obedience. When Jesus was comparing obedience to a man digging deep and laying the foundation on rock. Reminds us spiritual life is like building the house, digging deep on the word of God and fervent in prayers. To base and model our life on Jesus the rock and our foundation. Jesus spoke of floods, in this world there is pain, trouble an tough times.

Decision: Father Lord help me and teach me to pray. Lord, please lead me in path of righteousness. I do not want to do just lip service but truly want to be faithful bond servant of the Almighty.

I surrender and make careful commitment to read, study, obey the word of God, earnestly pray, diligently serve, live, trusting, depending on the grace and mercies of the Lord, totally leaning on to the Holy Spirit and unconditional love of the Father Lord.
