(Luk 6:47-49) Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
Many people read the above scripture and interpret it as the institution of a law, if they can read where Jesus said “feed the poor and visit people in prison”, and they deem themselves as having completed or obeyed this perceived “Law of Christ”, then they count themselves as sound and truly the disciples of Christ. Others may look at the command given to the disciples of Christ before his ascension to “preach the gospel”, they have no grace to preach, neither are they personally sent by God to preach, but they count themselves as obeying the “Law of Christ”, and therefore sound as “doers of the Word”. (Rom. 10:15) Would you like an example?
The above video is an extreme example of someone preaching who is not sent, there are many that are far less offensive, and even appear far more loving, but the Lord has not sent them!
What we need to do is take a closer look at what Jesus is teaching and what his Apostles taught so we can expose these works of iniquity, so that none of ourselves would deceive ourselves, thinking that our works are righteous, when they are not.
