11/11 Luke 20:45-47
Then, with the crowds listening, he turned to his disciples and said, 46 “Beware of these teachers of religious law! For they like to parade around in flowing robes and love to receive respectful greetings as they walk in the marketplaces. And how they love the seats of honor in the synagogues and the head table at banquets. 47 Yet they shamelessly cheat widows out of their property and then pretend to be pious by making long prayers in public. Because of this, they will be severely punished.”
Our relationship with the Lord is not something we have earned nor is it something we can boast about because it is all Jesus-a free gift. He claims us we claim Him and through Him we live and exist and move and we owe all honor and glory to Him. Jesus is Lord and we are called to live with this knowledge in this earthen vessel of our body. We know Him and serve Him and one another.
