True & false
The passage here is in reference to people that
claim to be saved but are not. The preceding text before
this passage is in reference to false prophets or false teachers. Jesus told his disciples in verse 20 to look for fruit.
A. Mt 3:8,10, Col 1:10, Gal 5:22ff
B. Some ways to spend your time and earn your rewards in Heaven. Refer to the book by David Jeremiah which I have highlighted some points below.
The Things that Matter
by David Jeremiah
1. Use your spiritual gifts & edify the body of Christ- If it mercy show mercy to others, if it is teaching then teach, if encouraging then encourage, etc..
2. Be involved in evangelism (Ac 1:8). This does not just imply giving money to missionaries, but it implies you being an evangelist.
3. Be waiting for the Lords return (Lk 12:35-38)
True & authentic converts will display fruit
during their lives making them true disciples. Everyone is
at different stages of their walk and sometimes fruit may
take longer to appear, but overtime the true converts will
display fruit, and the false converts will not. Make
everyday count and live each day like it could be your last.
If the Lord were to return today what will he find you
doing? Will you be ashamed of his coming or will he find you
obedient and waiting for his return?
