How difficult is Salvation?

Jesus Christ never promised salvation
to those who just believe in Him. If we believe in Him and we believe
His words then we must follow and obey Him. It is easy to pull out a
few verses from the Bible and to base your hope of salvation on those
few verses but you need to read the WHOLE GOSPEL, ALL THE WORDS OF
Luke and John, and live according to those words that Jesus spoke
because those are the WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE, there are no other.
Salvation is not easy. Jesus said that
if we believe in Him we must follow Him and obey Him. We must go
after Him. We read in Matthew 16:24 “Jesus said to His
disciples:”If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself
and take up his cross and follow Me, for whoever wishes to save his
life shall lose it but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find
it. For what will a man be profited if he gains the whole world and
forfeits his soul, or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”
We have to FOLLOW and OBEY Jesus
Christ. We read the words of Jesus in Matthew 10:37 “He who loves
father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me and he who loves
son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me and he who does not
take his cross and follow after Me IS NOT WORTHY OF ME. He who has
found his life shall lose it and he who has lost his life for My sake
shall find it.” If we want to go after Jesus we will pay a price.
People will reject us. We will have to deny ourselves earthly
pleasures. We will have to go with Jesus where He guides us. We will
have to UTTERLY OBEY Him and PROVE that we love Him. If we do not
obey Him then we do not love Him. If we do not forsake everything
else and follow Him then we are not worthy of Him. Jesus said that
those who endure with Him until the END, only they will be saved.
There is no such thing as easy
salvation. All relationships are difficult. Your relationship with
Jesus Christ is the most difficult because He must take preference
over everything else. Jesus must be first in everything or else we
are not worthy of Him. Do not believe what people tell you that if
you just believe in Jesus then you will be saved. Go and read His
words and obey Him. Repent, turn away from sin. get your focus on
Jesus, obey Him, be baptized in water. Seek the infilling with His
holy Spirit so that His Spirit will dwell in you and be with you. Be
sensitive, listen to Him and follow His guidance every day. Do not
forsake Him. Do not go away from Him. He will not leave you but if
you leave Him then you are LOST. If you deny Him then He will deny
We have to PROVE that we are worthy of
Jesus. We have to stay with Him, follow Him and obey Him every day
until the very, very end of our lives. If we put our hand to the
plow and look back, if we love the things of the world and turn away
from Jesus, then we are not worthy of Him. We have to STAY WITH Jesus
until the very end.
Go and read the words of Jesus in the
gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and see how you match up. Are
you worthy of Jesus Christ? Why must He allow you into the kingdom of
heaven? Have you done and are you doing what He commanded. Have you
received His Holy Spirit and do you obey Him? Do you love Jesus
Christ more than anything else? Jesus knows and you know.
Are we worthy Jesus Christ? Salvation
is not easy. Only those who endure until the very end will be saved.
Seek Jesus and follow Him with all your heart, all your power . Many
will try hard to enter the kingdom of heaven and will not be able,
they will be disappointed. Follow Jesus with all your power, dedicate
your life to Him or else we are not worthy of Him.

May Jesus bless you.
