“Not Every One That Saith Unto Me Lord, Lord, Shall Enter into the Kingdom of Heaven”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

It is not just those who cry out to the Lord, not just those whose voices are raised to Jehovah, not just those whose display of righteousness is public and whose commitment to the faith is spoken regularly, who shall be saved. Rather, it is those who trust in the Lord, who perform the works of righteousness in a quiet but steadfast manner, who shall receive the approbation of heaven. “Why call ye me Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46.)
