Lies Men Want to Believe – Part 6 (by Walt Henrichsen)

“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” Luke 6:46

You can serve God on your terms is the sixth lie people assume is true. This false assumption has been exposed frequently in this devotional. Most evangelical Christians today believe this lie, and live their lives accordingly. I cannot think of a more sure way to condemn yourself to Hell.

The Apostle Paul notes, “For you are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”1 Paul called himself the slave of Christ and insists that all who claim Jesus as their Lord and Savior are His slaves. Slaves do not serve their masters on their own terms; such is a contradiction of terms. God did not save you for the purpose of serving you, but rather so you will serve Him.”

It is terrifying to watch people who profess faith in Christ willfully ignoring His commands, doing as they please. As Paul notes, Christ bought you with His blood so you can glorify God, not so God can make you happy. As Jesus said, “If you will not do what I say, why do you call Me Lord?”
