If we are not driven by a desire to follow and obey Jesus and be pleasing to Him, to serve Him, and to do those things which He requires of us, then our faith is empty and void, it is in vain. If we just go through the motions, do what is good and hope to escape hell by doing the minimum, then we will certainly end up in hell.
Jesus does not want a LAME OFFERING. If we have no desire after Him, Himself, then we do not belong to Him. If we have no desire to pray, to LISTEN to Him, to HEAR from Him, then our relationship with Him is a lie. If our relationship with Jesus is not REAL and BURNING inside of us, if we are not willing to give up everything and go after Jesus, do that which He requires of us then our faith is in vain, then we will not have eternal life. If Jesus Christ is not our LIFE then we have no life!
If we only have a desire to read about Jesus, read the Bible, be with other “Christians,” fellowship, then we are not going after Jesus, we are going after our own desires. If we do not DESIRE Jesus with all our heart, go after Him every day, then we cannot be pleasing to Him.
Those who are led by the Spirit of God, they are the the sons of God. Is Jesus Christ your desire? Or are you going after other things? What is more important in your life, Jesus, or your own desires, other things? Being accepted by this world? Making money? What is your desire?
If we seek Him, we find Him. If we WAIT ON HIM He will reveal Himself to us. Is Jesus Christ your desire? May Jesus bless you.
