"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'--Matthew 7:21-23.
Is He really our Lord?
It all begins with this simple question, one that is so elementary, it is almost ludicrous.

This is the question we must address. This is the hurricane, the storm. Our answer determines the direction of our life until our last breath. There is no room for negotiation in this response, no grounds for compromise. We cannot avoid this question. We will answer it.
