If you want LIFE, eternal life, you have to FOLLOW Jesus Christ. You have to give up YOUR LIFE, your plans, your ambitions and GO after Jesus, become part of His Kingdom and fulfill His plan for you. If we do not go after Jesus with all that we are then we cannot be part of His Kingdom.
Does it mean that you stop living? NO! It is only then that you START living, that you have LIFE, eternal life in Jesus because as long as you are WITH HIM you have LIFE, you have the hope of ETERNAL LIFE. But if you go after your own plans and ambitions you cannot follow Jesus Christ. Jesus said:”Whoever wishes to come after Me must deny himself, pick up his cross every day and come here, follow Me.”
Jesus Christ will guide you every step of the way, He will TEACH you, He will SEND you where He wants to use you so that you can be useful and fruitful for His Kingdom. But if you refuse to go after Him, if you hold on to your old life, your own plans, your own ambitions, your desires, you cannot follow Jesus and you cannot be pleasing to Him. Your CAREER then becomes to FOLLOW JESUS, you become a FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST and a SERVANT OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD. Jesus Christ becomes your KING.
Have you taken on the NEW CAREER? Have you become a SERVANT OF GOD and a FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST? Or are you still LOST and following after your own desires, the things of the world, those things that will pass away, the things that people hold on to that distract them and make them end up in hell? If we love the world and the things of the world, the love of Jesus cannot be in us.
Have you taken on the new career? Is your career the Kingdom of God?
May Jesus bless you.
hi, I'm confused what you were saying. I go to a Pentecostal church. Everyday I have been trying to hear his voice by prayers. I want to share little bit about my life with you. We had a baby girl before we were married I know that did not please his eyes. So, we both repent for our sins and we were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ in October next month in November the day after we got married, the next morning, I went to Church. I got hit hard with the powerful holy ghost and It was so powerful that I cannot control that I fell to the ground while speaking in tongue. I finally understood what was a true meaning of being born again. I can feel him and I can feel the holy ghost moving inside of me like a fire. My wife spoke in tongues 7 months after me. It was awesome.ReplyDelete
Anyway, Are you saying give up ur old life...is that my old current life? I want to follow Jesus plan for me. I did quit my desires and it was the hardest thing I ever done. I quit playing violent video games and watch horror movies also any movies that said bad His name in vain. I only play clean games such as flying airplane or driving truck. I also watch Christian movies. but I do not know whats my desire that displease the Lord? because I gave up all the bad games and movies? Are you saying give up my ENTIRE life like leaving my family and Job? Also, I will move out of state where I was born in the east with my wife and two kids a (baby boy on the way.) I do not have family were we live. My kids need to be around their family. So, I don't know if that is God plan for us? I'm just doing what is it best for my family. I will like to preach God words to them when we move there to get my dad back to Church he knows the truth. I have two deaf friends who knows the truth that lives there. We want to preach to Deaf peoples about the Lord Jesus Christ there. My wife and I tried to preach here and no one come to our church here...So, I really want to follow God's way and I really want to serve the Lord. I really want to obey his Word. I feel him EVERYDAY in me that is MOVING which I DO NOT UNDERSTAND. I'm NOT even a year old in Holy Ghost yet till Novemeber. Im hearing people saying they talk to God and heard him I get frustrated becasue I want to hear him too! Maybe you can help out how you listen to His Voice? I feel the Lord every day but I do not understand what he's trying to say to me. Also, you said, "I always had a desire for God and grew up wanting to serve Him. I knew that the New Testament Christians were led by the Holy Spirit and I had a desire to get closer, hear His voice, be guided by the Holy Spirit, but I never knew how. I was always searching but could never find. I was looking for answers from people but could never really find a true man of God." Well, I feel the same way. I always want to find a true man of God and I'm hope that is you. It's confused what you explained on this video. Will you please explain to me clearly by what you mean by giving up our life meaning your family and job?
Dear friend, we can only KNOW what the will of God is if we HEAR from Him. Keep praying and seeking Jesus until He speaks to you CLEARLY, You will KNOW when Jesus speaks to you. Ask Jesus to show you His way and to speak to you, He will. WAIT on Him. He will speak in His time and in His own way.Delete
May Jesus bless you.
Thank you. I really like your vlogs. I follow your teaching everyday about Jesus. I learned so much from you glad that you are sharing this with us.ReplyDelete
Jesus bless you, friend.Delete
Jesus bless you too :DReplyDelete
Should I keep living my life as long as I wait for The Lord to speak to me? You said, WAIT on him. I wasn't sure what you meant.ReplyDelete
He rewards those who diligently seek Him. If we SEEK we find. Jesus bless you.Delete
