In this part of the Sermon, Jesus continues his conclusion with the third ‘pair’ of things for us to consider: true and false disciples. Jesus reveals that, in the end, there will be those who have proven to be true disciples because they put into practice the things that God wills. On the other hand, there will be those who said they were disciples (and even undertook many ministry activities) but did not put into practice the things that God wills.
While we are saved by faith alone, biblical faith is both belief and action based on that belief. As we consider Jesus’ words, he is pressing us for a response. Will we learn to put into practice the things he taught in the sermon or will we ignore them?
