You must follow Jesus not just believe
It is senseless to believe in Jesus Christ for salvation if we do not follow and obey Him. Jesus said:"Why do you call Me Lord, Lord and you do not what I say."
Jesus Christ gives eternal life to those who follow and obey Him because they believe in Him. If we truly believe in Jesus we will obey His words, the words that He spoke as they are also recorded in the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke & John). We will turn away from sin, we will repent and be baptized in water, live holy and righteous and we will seek His Holy Spirit that He promised to those who obey Him, so that the Holy Spirit can guide us every day. The Spirit of Christ will be with us every moment, we will experience Him, if we follow and obey Him. He will guide us and He will teach us, we will know Jesus Christ because He will reveal Himself to us.
Jesus Christ will say to most people who believed in Him for salvation, but they did not obey Him, He will say to them:"Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness." They will not have salvation, they will end up in damnation, because they chose to disobey Him, they believed the lie. They did not follow Him, they did not obey Him, they just confessed Him with their lips but their hearts were far away from Him.
Do you know Jesus Christ? Do you follow and obey Him or are you heading for destruction?
May Jesus bless you.
