Walk ALONE Walk With Jesus
Salvation is not just about repentance, to stop sinning and be holy. It is about FOLLOWING Jesus Christ and staying with Him until the very end. Without Jesus there is no hope, no life, no salvation.
If we do not follow Jesus Christ we will perish. Jesus Christ is the WAY and the TRUTH and the LIFE. If you stop sinning but you do not follow Jesus Christ then you will still not have eternal life. You have to follow and obey Jesus. Obey His words, repent , turn away from sin and TURN TO JESUS. Obey His words, be baptized in water for the washing off of your sin and then, deny yourself, pick up your cross every day and follow Jesus Christ. Go after Jesus Christ, whatever the cost, whether people might reject you, whether they might not like you, whether you are persecuted or not, you go with Jesus.
Jesus Christ promised the Holy Spirit to those who OBEY Him, the Spirit of TRUTH that He gives in those who repent and who are baptized. If we do not have the Spirit of Christ then we do not belong to Him. If we do not have the Holy Spirit we cannot follow Jesus Christ. Those who are lead by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God, and the Holy Spirit will not guide you into sin. He will guide you into doing the will of God, into bearing FRUIT. Jesus said that "without Me you can do nothing". It is the will of God that we bear much fruit, but we can only bear fruit if we follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit and we DO the WORKS that Jesus prepared for us, if we follow Him every day. But if we turn away from Him and follow our own mind then we are already in danger of hell fire. It is not just about to stop sinning, it is about following Jesus Christ. It is not about going to church and having Christian friends. It is a lonely walk on the straight and narrow road, a walk with Jesus Christ. The world will reject you, they will shun you. It doesn't matter, as long as you stay with Jesus Christ, that is all that matters.
When people start following Jesus Christ they become alone. The world rejects them. Family reject them. Churches reject them, so-called Christians reject them. If you follow Jesus Christ you will find yourself ALONE with Him most of the time.
Do not look for the fellowship or the company of other Christians. Look for the fellowship of Jesus Christ and to be pleasing to Him. Look for the guidance of the Holy Spirit, for the approval of Jesus Christ. That is all that matters, because without Jesus we have no life. Without Jesus Christ we are LOST.
Jesus Christ is the WAY. Obey Him and follow Him. Follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit every day until the very end.
May Jesus bless you.
