There is a lot of confusion about the Bible. What is important for us to know to have eternal life? Eternal life is about KNOWING, FOLLOWING and OBEYING Jesus Christ. The WORDS THAT JESUS SPOKE were recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and THOSE ARE THE WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE.
IF we OBEY the WORDS OF JESUS CHRIST then Him and His Father will come and LIVE WITH US, He will give His Holy Spirit to be WITH us to guide us every step of the way. He will reveal Himself to us and then we KNOW Jesus, we KNOW God and He guides us into eternal life. Eternal life is about KNOWING JESUS CHRIST. It is not about knowing the Bible. It is about being a child of God. You become a child of God when you OBEY Jesus and you DO what He commanded, then you become a part of the Body of Christ. It is not about going to church. It is not about fellowshipping with other believers. It is about our fellowship with Jesus Christ the living God. If you do not have that real relationship of Father/son where you DO the will of your Father God then you are not a child of God. You might know the Bible, you might go to church, you might associate with other believers but if you don't know Jesus and He doesn't know you and if you are not living a life that is pleasing to Him, in OBEDIENCE to Him, then He will say to you when you die:”Go away from Me I never knew you, you worker of wickedness.” You need to KNOW JESUS CHRIST!
It is not about the Bible, it is not about anything else. It is about KNOWING our Lord and Master and SERVING Him and OBEYING Him. TRUE REPENTANCE is to TURN AWAY from SIN and from doing the desires of my flesh and to seek the living God, to OBEY Him and to become a SERVANT OF HIS KINGDOM. STOP SINNING, BE RIGHTEOUS, BE HOLY, SEEK JESUS for forgiveness of your past sins, be BAPTIZED IN WATER for the WASHING OFF OF YOUR SINS and then SEEK JESUS for His HOLY SPIRIT to come and dwell with you, to GUIDE you every step of the way.
Jesus said:”My sheep LISTEN to My voice and they FOLLOW Me.” How do you follow Jesus if you cannot see Him? You follow Him when you OBEY His words and He gives His Holy Spirit to come and dwell WITH you and you LISTEN to the Holy Spirit. You stay focused on His Spirit that He gives IN YOU. You LISTEN and you OBEY, you SERVE Him every day. You do not run after your own ideas, your own desires, the things that YOU want to do but you serve your Master. You LISTEN to His VOICE and you FOLLOW Him.
Its not about the Bible. It is about KNOWING, FOLLOWING AND OBEYING Jesus Christ from NOW until ETERNITY. That is ETERNAL LIFE!
May Jesus bless you.
