Word and Deed

Matthew 7:21–23

God knows we will never be perfect in this life, but He does expect us to grow in faith and increasingly conform to Christ by loving our fellow Christians, understanding true doctrine, and following His precepts (1 John 3:23–24). Those whose lives increasingly reflect such things can be sure that they do not profess Jesus falsely. Let today’s passage prompt you to take a “spiritual inventory.” Where have you seen growth? Where do you need to be more obedient?
