The Superior Lord.

Luke 6:26 - "Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?"

This verse is pretty powerful. It's saying that people can say things but not mean it or do it. The word Lord in a dictionary means a ruler or superior person, so he is confused that you call him a ruler, but don't follow his commands. If you put that in context the verse is saying, Why do you call me ruler and superior, when you do not do what I say? So when we call God, Lord, we are saying he is superior above all of us. Now do we actually think that? That is where the heart comes in. In our heart, do we actually believe that God is superior and ruler? If your answer is yes, then you are on the right track and are probably following his commands right now. If your answer is no, then you are lying to yourself. You are calling him a great ruler, when you don't think he really is. You need to get into God's word deeper and truly believe before you can call our God, Lord. But until then, keep praying that you will truly believe in God before he comes back. And for those of you who answered yes, please keep reading the Bible, praying, following his commands and being the light of the world (Matthew 5:14). There is so much purpose to doing those things, and it will give you satisfaction in life.
