Vast numbers of Christian believers base their faith and the security of their salvation on words written on paper, their Bibles, dead words, but they do not know Jesus Christ. The words written in the Bible cannot save us, it is Jesus Christ who saves those who OBEY Him. Man will not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from the MOUTH of God.
If we have not heard from Jesus Christ Himself then those words do not apply to us. We cannot take words from the Bible and apply it to us and then believe that those words can save us, they cannot. Jesus Christ is ALIVE, He is GOD. We must HEAR FROM HIM and we must live to please Him, we must have a LIVING RELATIONSHIP with Him.
If we do not KNOW Jesus Christ and we do not HEAR from Him we have NO GUARANTEE, we have NO HOPE! We need to HEAR FROM JESUS, WORDS OF LIFE every day. We need to HEAR from Jesus Christ and FOLLOW and OBEY Him until the very end. If we do not know Jesus and He does not know us He will say to us:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.”
Do you HEAR from Jesus or do you just apply words written in the Bible to yourself? Is your hope in a Book or in the Living God, Jesus Christ? Do you KNOW Him for REAL?
May Jesus bless you.
