Read Matthew 21:23-32
To believe Jesus is to obey Him.
Which son did right? The obedient one.
Which sinner did right--prostitutes or religious leaders? Prostitutes.
Jesus didn't care about promoting his authority, He cares about those who just believe.
Christians love to talk about belief but were we fail is in our obedience.
There were two Christians, one who talked the talk about belief and one who walked the talk with obedience. Tell me which one is of the faith? Faith without works is dead.
If you truly obeyed Jesus what would your life look like?
