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.
