They call me master, but I am not.
They pray that my will be done, but they do not want it.
They sing songs to me, but they do not mean them.
Now the question arises, who are “they”?
This is the Phariseeism in all our hearts. Lip service without the right attitude of heart.
Lord, give us repentant hearts.
Warning against self-deception
21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord!’ Did we not speak prophetically in your name, cast out demons in your name, and do many miracles in your name?’ 23 Then I will say to them, ‘I never knew you. Go away from me, you with your lawless activity!'”
