The Real Christian Life

The real Christian life is
living a life that is determined by the Holy Spirit, by Jesus Christ
dwelling in you. It is not about Bible study, it is not about going
to church. It is about the reality of Jesus Christ, knowing Him for
real. Most professing Christians do not know Jesus Christ and they
are not following Him. They are just playing religion. Jesus Christ
reveals Himself as real to those who obey His words, the gospel of
Jesus Christ. If you take Jesus Christ seriously and you obey His
words then He will reveal Himself to you; you will know His voice and
you will follow Him every day, you will live your life to please Him.
He will guide you in everything, because you will seek His guidance
in everything.
Jesus Christ commands
those who believe in Him to repent, to turn away from living the
normal worldly life, that all people live. All people are driven by
their own desires, their fears and anxiety, peer pressure, they live
in the world and want to adapt to the world, they want to survive
in this world. But if we believe in Jesus then we are not of this,
world we are of kingdom of God and therefore we have to repent from
worldly things. We have to repent from sin and be holy, we have to
repent from following after the ways of the world, from following
after out own mind, and we have to follow after Jesus Christ. We
cannot follow after Jesus if we do not repent, and once we have
repented we must obey Jesus and be baptized in water. If we are
serious with Jesus and we seek to truly follow Him, if we go after
Him, seek him in prayer, and live according to His words as recorded
in the Gospels, (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), holy righteous and in
obedience to Him, then He will give His Spirit in us, Jesus Christ
Himself will come and dwell in us, and He will reveal Himself to us,
He will speak to us , He will guide us, He will teach us, but we have
to stay focused on Him. We have to go after Him.
The normal Christian life
is a life that is determined by the guidance of Jesus Christ in us.
If we do not have the Holy Spirit in us then we cannot follow Jesus.
If Jesus is not in us then we are not a temple of His Holy Spirit and
we do not belong to Him. Most professing Christians are playing
church, they are playing religion. They are educating themselves with
the Bible but they have no knowledge of God. They don't know Jesus
Christ, they are not following Him . They are following after people,
after the teachings of people. They go to church, they listen to
other people, they follow their own mind, they follow their own
feelings, and follow after the world and they believe that they have
salvation, but they are deceived because they do not know Jesus
Christ. They are living like the normal worldly Christian lives, the
person who is lost. If you truly know Jesus Christ and you have His
Spirit dwelling in you and you follow His guidance everyday in
everything, you ask Him about everything, you go to Him with
everything. Jesus is your life, you become part of His kingdom. He
reveals Himself to you, He tells you things to come because you
follow Jesus Christ, the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
Do you know Jesus? Has He
revealed Himself to you? Are you serious about Jesus Christ? Do you
know Him? Have you met Him? Have you obeyed Him? Have you repented
and been baptized in water? Do you seek Him with all your heart in
prayer until He answers you? Do you know Jesus Christ for real? Are
you a real follower of Jesus Christ? Are you a child of God? Those
who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God.
If we are not led by the Spirit of Christ, in us, Jesus living in us,
then we are not of Him. Are you a real a child of God? Do you know
Him and do you follow Him?
May Jesus bless you.
