Many people hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and they become convicted, they make a decision for Jesus and they repeat a sinners prayer after some preacher. They experience the joy and peace that Jesus gives in your heart when you invite Him in but very soon they drift away from Jesus.
If we accept Jesus and invite Him into our hearts, He comes in and He gives us His joy and His peace but if we do not stay with Him and do not keep our promise of being faithful to Him then we go away from Him and we are in danger of hell fire. Many people believe that they are saved because they have said a sinners prayer but after that they went away from Jesus. The only safe place is to be WITH JESUS CHRIST, to work on our relationship with Him and to come closer and closer to Him every day.
If we seek Him, we find Him. If we draw closer to Him He draws closer to us and He reveals Himself to us, we get to know Him better. Many people believe that they are saved but they will stand before Jesus and He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.” They never became truly acquainted with Jesus. They never got to know Him for real. They never worked on their relationship with Him and they drifted away from Him. If we do not STAY WITH Jesus and if we do not get closer to Him every day, stay with Him until the very end, then we will not be with Him in eternity.
Have you come closer to Jesus since you called out to Him the first time? Are you with Jesus or have you drifted away from Him? How is your relationship with Jesus Christ? Do you still experience that first joy and peace that you had in your heart? Has your relationship with Jesus become better and closer with time? Come closer to Jesus.
May Jesus bless you.
