Jesus Shouldn't Be Used Simply As A Come Up
There is a bitter taste in the mouths of people. Many feel like there are not many real Christians because of mistakes made by some with callings they did not receive from God. There are many who the Spirit of God has left, but they continue on. Pride has swept over many in not only the pulpit, but also throughout the body. Christians blending in with the world, when we are called to be set apart. Many receiving outrageous profits financially but leaving an outstanding amount of souls empty.

I believe as believers of Jesus Christ one of the worse things we could ever hear would be "I never knew you". Matthew 7:21-23 centers around Jesus explaining that not everything that is done in His name is of Him. See below...
"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
My Husband's Input
I asked Errick a question...How can we know the difference in what we are doing?
His response, "God doesn't leave us ignorant to the enemies devices. Never pulling back and spending true time with the Lord and hearing from Him. Ministry is everywhere, our home, on the job, grocery stores, and not just in the church. These people always think they are right and they do not accept correction. Some people do not talk to their coworkers about Jesus, they wait until they get in church. You cannot get so caught up in being in the church that you forget what God has brought you from and sharing that with people around you. We are the church. We cannot get so caught up with 'Aw, I have to be here or there'. We have to be disciples everywhere, teaching others about who Jesus is...we have to reach those around us".
I received an alert this morning from Tony Evans' app and it said this:
"Be careful never to be doing so much for God that you miss Him in the process...."
May We Never Hear "I Never Knew You"
