Luke 6:46-49 (NIV)
"Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say? I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice. He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete."
These are some Passages where Jesus speaks to us:
Luke 9:23 "If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me." *
Matthew 10:38 "Anyone who does not take his cross and follow Me is not worthy of me." *
Luke 6:46-48 "You follow Me by listening to My word in your heart, hearing Me, and obeying Me." *
John 14:23 If you love Me, you will obey My commandments.
