You CAN do it
People often say that it is impossible to obey the commandments of Jesus Christ, to obey His words as they are also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Those words are the words of eternal life for those who OBEY them, for those who DO what Jesus commanded.
Those are not easy commandments. Jesus said that we must SIN NO MORE. We must be PERFECT like our Father in heaven is perfect. Jesus said that if we love father or mother or brother or sister more than Him, if we even love our own life more than Him then we are not worthy of Him and we cannot be His disciples and thus we cannot have eternal life. BUT, we can do what Jesus requires of us. Jesus will not require of us what we cannot do. He will not require of us what is impossible.
Many things that Jesus asks us to do seem impossible but if we obey Jesus and we TRUST Him then He makes it possible. Jesus said:"My yoke is soft and my burden is not heavy" because He ENABLES us. He bears the yoke with us He gives us the POWER to do what seems impossible because He is the God of the impossible. He enables us to do the will of God. He enables us to be obedient children of God, to be HOLY, PURE and RIGHTEOUS, to be LIGHT in darkness.
If we really TRUST Jesus and OBEY Him then nothing is impossible because with Jesus Christ all things are possible. But if we are not willing to go with Him, to TRUST Him and to OBEY Him we will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus warned that narrow is the gate and straight is the door that leads to eternal life and few there be that find it. He warned that many will try very hard and not be able but if we TRUST Him and we OBEY Him and we FOLLOW Him He will GUIDE us and those things which seemed to be impossible He will make possible. If we only TRUST Him and OBEY Him.
You CAN DO IT if you TRUST and OBEY Jesus Christ. He goes with you every step of the way . He will never leave you and He will never forsake you. He is with you all the way.Do you trust Him and will you obey Him?
May Jesus bless you.
