Salvation is not just about believing in Jesus Christ, that is half the story. If we believe that Jesus Christ is whom He said that He is, that He is the Son of God, that He is God in the flesh, then we must OBEY Him, we must accept Him as our Lord , our Master, our King and we must submit ourselves to Him. We have to follow and obey Him or else our faith was in vain.
If we truly follow Jesus Christ we will take His words seriously. He said to His disciples:"One is your Teacher, even the Christ," Jesus Christ Himself. He gives His Holy Spirit in those who ACCEPT Him, who repent of sin and who OBEY Him, who seek His will, who seek His guidance, and the Holy Spirit will teach them and will guide them into the whole truth. They do not run after other teachers. They go after Jesus Christ. They LISTEN to the Holy Spirit. They are led by the Holy Spirit.
Those who are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. If we truly follow Jesus Christ we do not listen to other teachers, we do not listen to Bible teachers. We listen to the Holy Spirit because we KNOW Him and we have received Him and the Spirit of Christ dwells in us. We cannot follow Jesus Christ if He is not our Teacher.
Have you received the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ? Does He teach and guide you? Are you a child of God? Are you truly a follower of Jesus Christ? If you do not follow Jesus Christ you will perish because Jesus Himself, is the WAY and the TRUTH and the LIFE. His Spirit, the Holy spirit IN you is Emmanuel, God IN you, God WITH you, God guiding and teaching you.
Who is your teacher? Who are you following? Are you following after men or are you led by the Holy Spirit? Is Jesus Christ your Teacher?
May Jesus bless you.
