LORD

I was about eight years old when I last heard my grandfather, Papa, preach.

I remember him standing behind the pulpit, his voice filled with the authority of the scripture. And I remember the text, Luke 6:46.

46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

I remember that question reverberating throughout the tiny church, and I remember it reverberating in my heart as I thought of Jesus looking at the people following Him and asking it.

I never read that scripture without thinking of my grandfather.

Today, it is still a good question to ask.

It is a good question with which to check my heart.

Ephesians 6:Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:

Psalm 139: 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
