HGTV Renovation and Advent?

I love watching HGTV. I love seeing neglected houses, in sad states of disrepair, transformed  into something new and beautiful. But do you ever notice how quick the transformation is? The  renovation and that shiny, new farmhouse sink look good, but are they really good?  

In Matthew 7:21, we’re told that doing good work in the Lord’s name is not enough for us  enter the kingdom of heaven. We must do the will of the Father. Doing good work but without  doing God’s will is like covering up old knob-and-tube wiring with pretty walls and not fixing  what’s truly lacking. The result of good looking work is fleeting. In a few years, a new contractor will have to step in to fix the real issue.
