Many believers want Jesus Christ to speak to them, to guide them as He promised but they never started following Him, they are not serious! They never repented from their evil ways, they never stopped sinning. They never committed to follow Jesus Christ. They never obeyed Him and were not baptized in water. They are not going after Him. They do not deny themselves, turn their back on the pleasures of the world and on their own desires and they do not GO AFTER Jesus every day. THEY ARE JUST NOT SERIOUS!
You need to SHOW Jesus that you are serious about following Him. You need to TURN AWAY from sin and from serving yourself, going after the lusts of your flesh, you need to STOP SINNING, BE HOLY and righteous. Be baptized for the washing off of your sin and then SIN NO MORE. If we draw closer to Him, He draws closer to us. If we seriously go after Him, He will guide us, every day. He will give His Spirit IN US to guide us every step of the way, but WE NEED TO BE SERIOUS or else we will perish!
Are you serious? Are you seriously going after Jesus? Is He on your mind all day? Are you praying, seeking Him? If you are not showing by your deeds that you are serious about following Jesus Christ, you will never know Him and never enter the kingdom of Heaven.
Be serious, seek Him with all your heart. Go after Him every day UNTIL THE END OF YOUR LIFE. Follow Him and obey Him until the end if you want eternal life.
May Jesus bless you.
