Matthew 7: 13-23
Spirituality is good content.
The problem with putting all you energy into developing a good package, eventually the package gets opened.
Three ways to ensure content equals form
1. Look for it. (vs. 13-14)
2. Examine the contents of your life. (vs. 15-18)
vs. 20 by their fruit you will recognize them
Galatians 5:22-23; II Corinthians 13:5
If your examination turns up nothing but rotten fruit, something needs to be fixed.
3. Get to know Jesus (vs. 21)
a. “he who does the will of My Father”
Am I busy doing God's will?
b. “away from me, you evildoers”
Attention and acclaim may be the only reward you will get.
c. “I never knew you”
A relationship with Jesus extends beyond your public life, into your private life.
