Matthew 15:8 8 “‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. (NIV)

 Honoring God with our lips and not meaning it is very close to using His name in vain.  There are many who acknowledge Jesus is the Son of God yet they do not honor Him in their hearts, minds or lives.  They may be very active in church thinking all they do is enough.  So often we mistake the love of God for a love that never disciplines when necessary.  God created us to love and to be loved by us.  Our works are not our primary reason for being.  Our primary reason for being is to be in a close relationship with our Father through His Son, Jesus and with the help of His Holy Spirit.  As Lent is drawing to a close let’s be sure we ask the Holy Spirit to show us where our hearts are.  Do we love God so much our biggest desire is to be with Him and please Him?
