In Luke 6:46, Jesus confronts the inconsistency between people’s words and actions. He questions why some call Him “Lord” but don’t follow His teachings. This verse serves as a reminder that true faith in Jesus involves not only professing Him as Lord but also obeying His commands.
Jesus’ question is an invitation for self-examination, to assess whether our lives genuinely align with His teachings. It is essential to not just be hearers of the Word but doers as well (James 1:22). By living out Jesus’ teachings, we demonstrate our love for Him and our commitment to His lordship in our lives.
Time to reflect
As you reflect on Luke 6:46 and Jesus’ call to obedience, consider the following questions:
- In what areas of your life do you struggle to put Jesus’ teachings into practice?
- How can you work on aligning your actions with your profession of faith in Christ?
- What steps can you take to grow in obedience to Jesus’ commands and deepen your relationship with Him?
