Advent Day 18-December 14, 2011 Wednesday

Matthew 7:21-23 Message Version- Knowing the correct password—saying 'Master, Master,' for instance— isn't going to get you anywhere with me. What is required is serious obedience—doing what my Father wills. I can see it now—at the Final Judgment thousands strutting up to me and saying, 'Master, we preached the Message, we bashed the demons, our God-sponsored projects had everyone talking.' And do you know what I am going to say? 'You missed the boat. All you did was use me to make yourselves important. You don't impress me one bit. You're out of here.'

-Putting up Christmas lights, Christmas trees, even going to church on Christmas, does not get in you good with God.

-Although working for God should be done, it must be done from the right starting point. The starting point is knowing God through his son Jesus. Wanting our life to be like his. Well how does that come about? Well you see Advent Day 1-17 as a good foundation.

Merry Christmas
