The MISTAKE most Christian Believers make
Most Christian believers make the mistake of thinking that their faith in Jesus Christ will save them. It is only those who OBEY Jesus, who FOLLOW Him and endure with Him until the END that will be saved. Most Christian believers never FOLLOW Jesus Christ, they do not obey Him, they do not obey His words, they do not deny themselves, pick up their cross every day, and they do not follow Him and therefor they never get to know Him.
I read the words of Jesus in Luke 13:23
“And someone said to Him, “Lord, are there just a few who are being saved?” And He said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. “Once the head of the house gets up and shuts the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock on the door, saying, ‘Lord, open up to us!’ then He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know where you are from.’ “Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets’; and He will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you are from;DEPART FROM ME, ALL YOU EVILDOERS.’ “In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
Many hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and they respond, they repent, some of them are baptized and then they become religious. Very few of those who believe actually go after Jesus. Very few of them follow Him. Very few of them receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ and very few of those follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit every day of their lives until the very end. Many believe in Jesus. Many go to church, they become religious, they read their Bibles and they do religious things but very few of those have that close relationship with Jesus.
Fellowship with other Christians might make you feel good but it is fellowship with Jesus Christ, that close walk, that is all that matters. That is the only way that you get to know Him. That is why He will say to most believers:"Go away I never knew you, you workers of evil, you evildoers." Why? They follow their own minds, they do what they please, they play religion but they do not know nor follow Jesus Christ. We can only please Him when we are in close relationship with Him, follow Him and OBEY Him and DO what He commands us to do DAY BY DAY under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is ALIVE and He gives His Holy Spirit in those who seek Him. Those who are led by the Spirit of God they are the children of God, not just those that believe. Believing will not save you if you do not LISTEN, OBEY and FOLLOW Jesus Christ and DO what He commands you to do. That is why most believers will not enter into the kingdom of heaven - THEY DID NOT KNOW JESUS CHRIST because they did not follow Him.
Are WE following Jesus Christ? Do WE know Him and does He know us?
May Jesus bless you.
