This is a question that has been raised many times on AAG, though worded a little differently by you it is still the same question.
Let me ask you a question:
According to your view do you do the will of God to be saved or do you do the will of God because you are saved? In other words, according to your view, do we have to work hard to be saved or do we respond to God because we are saved and live for Him?
Yes, because we are saved we must seek to live holy and God pleasing lives. We do this not to be saved, but because we have been transformed and indwelt by the living God.
Yes, I total agree with this. We cannot be hearers and not do or live his word. Many think that going the church and being on the church board that is all and enough, but not true. This life of christ have to be lived and acceptable to our lord and savior Jesus Christ.
God telling us well done good and faithful servant does not coming by just confessing Christ, attending church service, preaching and having many churches, being famous preacher, having money and flying with jets, being a television preacher but being connected to Gods mind and knowing exactly the hope of His calling according to His purpose and will.
21 "Knowing the correct password — saying 'Master, Master,' for instance — isn't going to get you anywhere with me. What is required is serious obedience — doing what my Father wills. 22 I can see it now — at the Final Judgment thousands strutting up to me and saying, 'Master, we preached the Message, we bashed the demons, our God-sponsored projects had everyone talking.' 23 And do you know what I am going to say? 'You missed the boat. All you did was use me to make yourselves important. You don't impress me one bit. You're out of here.' THE MESSAGE
21 "Not all who sound religious are really godly people. They may refer to me as 'Lord,' but still won't get to heaven. For the decisive question is whether they obey my Father in heaven. 22 At the Judgment1595 many will tell me, 'Lord, Lord, we told others about you and used your name to cast out demons and to do many other great miracles.' 23 But I will reply, 'You have never been mine.1596 Go away, for your deeds are evil.' TLB
21 Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven.
22 Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons in Your name and done many mighty works in Your name?
23 And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands]. [Ps 6:8.] AMP
21 "Not everyone who calls out to me, 'Lord! Lord!' will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. 22 On judgment day many will say to me, 'Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.' 23 But I will reply, 'I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God's laws.' New Living Translation .
21 "aNot everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 "aMany will say to Me on bthat day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many 1miracles?' 23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; aDEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.' NASU
More than a half of the church today does not have relevance in God is just show off, manipulation and deception but time has come we have to find relevance so that we take our place in partnering with god to fulfill His will in the earth. Jesus said your will be done in earth as it is in heaven. We cannot be an escaping church which wants to leave its responsibility here on earth and go to heaven. God birthed His church so that he can build a global body of believers who are not religious and divided by denominational celebrities leaders but joined through kingdom values above all values of this world to bring forth a nation that was promised through our father Abraham.
