Those who do not follow Jesus Christ are doomed and in darkness, they don't know where they are going. Jesus Christ alone is the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE. Those who follow Him, who live in close relationship with Him are led by His Spirit every step of the way and they KNOW where they are going because He guides them.
If you want LIFE you have to TURN TO JESUS. Turn away form your own wisdom, turn away from seeking guidance from other people, turn away from seeking guidance in the Bible and seek your guidance from Jesus Christ the Living God. Seek Him and you will find Him. Live in a moment by moment relationship with Him and you will never be in darkness.
In every situation, TURN TO JESUS. Ask Him! Ask Him for wisdom, ask Him for guidance, TRUST Him, follow Him and OBEY Him and you will have eternal life. Without Jesus we can do nothing. Turn to Jesus and you will LIVE. Stray from Him and you will certainly perish.
May Jesus bless you.
