I am still reading and studying Luke 13. This morning, I am in verses 22-30. After I read those verses, I sat back and took a deep breath. As I was taking that deep breath the thought came to mind, "This is serious".
A question was asked of Jesus about the number of people who will be saved. Jesus told the absolute truth (He always tell the truth), there are many who think they are going to enter the kingdom of heaven, but they will not.
This passage of scripture includes the people pleading their case, because they ate and drank in His presence, is reason for entry. But, the scripture notes, He do not know them. There was no relationship.
We have to have a relationship with Jesus. We have to seek His face. We have to follow the commandants he left us to love Him and our neighbor. We have to be a servant. We have to follow His example.
This is so very serious. It is a matter of life and death. I choose life...
