Salvation is a package and the name of that package is Jesus Christ. If you want to have salvation you have to accept the package, which means that if you believe in Jesus Christ and accept Him then you have to OBEY Him. You have to do everything that He commanded and that He commands you to do. You cannot exclude anything.
Jesus said:"If you love Me, obey My commands." You cannot have salvation without Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is Lord and He is Master and if you accept Him you have to submit yourself to Him, you have to die to self, die to sin and live for Jesus Christ in utter obedience to Him.
You cannot select part of the package. You cannot take what you like and discard of the rest. You have to accept Jesus Christ and all of His words, all of His commands IN TOTAL to have eternal life.
Jesus said:"Whoever WISHES to come after Me must deny himself, every day pick up his cross and come here, follow Me." Jesus Christ commands us to turn away from sin, to be baptized in water and to RECEIVE the baptism in the Holy Spirit, to be lead by the Holy Spirit. Our life must be governed by the Holy Spirit, which is the Spirit of Christ. We must UTTERLY submit to Him and live for Him. He will say to many believers who thought that they were saved:"Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness."
If we do not utterly obey Him and endure with Him until the very end we will not enter His kingdom. We have to persevere and endure until the very end and do the will of God. We must accept the WHOLE PACKAGE, submit to the King, Jesus Christ and SERVE Him as Lord for now and for ever.
Have you accepted the PACKAGE? Are you following Jesus Christ and doing His will?
May Jesus bless you.
