But he will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you come from. Depart from me, all you workers of evil!’ Luke 13:27 ESV


“Depart from me” is a verdict of finality and separation. Our text reveals this will be the verdict for many.

Beloved, many who ate and drank with Jesus, revelled in His presence, followed Him, were taught by Him, and worked for Him, but couldn’t enter through the narrow door, will hear this irreversible pronouncement and verdict. The door will be shut against them at the appointed time because they are evildoers, workers of iniquity, sinful and strangers to the Lord! Notice though they were taught by Him, dinned and wined with Him, their disobedience and refusal to enter through the narrow door turned them into strangers! Jesus cannot identify with sin and sinfulness, therefore sinners who refuse His offer, will always remain strangers to Him and shut out!

Grace upon grace!

PRAYERS: Lord, I refuse to remain a sinner and stranger to you and be shut out. I accept your invitation and enter through the narrow door in Jesus name.
