Matthew 7:21

"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven." NIV

"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom, of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." KJV

False teachers claim divine inspiration, yet their inward natures have never been changed. They wear the costume of a sheep to appear holy on the outside. Followers of these teachers literally trade their souls for bad fruit because they are deceived and taught they can follow the narrow road with comfort and ease. Jesus teaches that these false teachers and their followers will not enter the kingdom of God because only on the outside do they appear religious. Inwardly they have no spiritual relationship with Him at all. He does not know them.

Heavenly Father, oh how we pray for forgiveness for listening to those who tell us easier ways to live the 'Christian life.' Give us discernment to know false teachers. Give us more hunger for Your Word that will help us rightly divide the word of truth. Open our spirits to the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit that we will not stray from the Truth. In Jesus' name, Amen.

It's easy to fall into the trap of listening to false teachers. I like the graphic you chose. It illustrates the point so well. We can't play games with God.
