How To Enter The Kingdom Of Heaven
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for November 24, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them… For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 5:17, 20
Lord our God, give us new hearts, teach us a new way on earth, so that through your commandments all men may act in accordance with your Word and may become one. Only you can do this, working through your promised Holy Spirit, and you will do it in order that the earth may become a paradise, a heavenly kingdom pleasing to you. Let your words be written in our hearts, and help us to fulfill your commandments in all our daily contacts. For your commandments are to be carried out by us foolish, sinful men so that we may be made perfect, our sins may be forgiven, and everything may become right and good in your sight. Stay with us, Lord God, our Father. Help us in everything. Let something new, something pleasing to you, soon come into our time. Put your commandments into men’s hearts, that peace may be restored to the glory of your name. Amen.
Daily Commentary: Jesus came to fulfill the law that God gave to us. He is he word that leads us to the kingdom of heaven. How to enter the kingdom of heaven? Prayer is the key for all of us. Without it, we cannot hope to know the real Lord .
We must seek first the kingdom of God through faith but as a consequence of our actions, “Small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:14 As such, Christians must obey God’s law.
It is not enough to just know God. The law does not define just how we act but who we are inside and through repentance of our sins do we come back to the law. it is Christ’s righteousness that we must follow to the letter of the law for no man can come to God with sinfulness in his heart.
God knows what we have done, who we are and what is in our hearts but it is us who must come to the Lord with a clean heart before we can enter the kingdom of heaven. God’s kingdom has been opened to us through the promise of the Holy Spirit but only to those who God makes perfect with His love.
