Faith Alone CANNOT Save You

Faith alone cannot
save you. Just believing something does not mean that you have
attained it. You might believe that you can be a doctor or a pilot
but unless you fulfill the requirements, go through the training and
prove through your performance that you are capable of doing those
things then you are a failure. Then your faith is worthless, it has
failed you. It was just a hope. It was just an expectation. The very
same with salvation.
Faith alone without
action, without performance, cannot save you. Your faith must go into
action and you have to prove through your performance that you are a
child of God, that you are worthy of the kingdom of heaven. You have
to comply with the requirements. Jesus Christ said:"Why do you
call Me Lord, Lord and you do not what I say?" He said:"Not
everyone who says to Me Lord, Lord will enter into heaven, but those
who do the will of My Father." What is the will of the Father?
It is that we obey the words of Jesus Christ, not just believe in
Him. Jesus said:"Whoever wishes to come after me must deny
himself, pick up his cross every day and come here follow me."
Unless we obey the words of Jesus we prove ourselves to be failures,
our faith is worthless. Faith without works is dead.
You can believe and
imagine yourself to be a child of God. You can imagine yourself to be
saved but if you do not obey Jesus, if you do not repent and are
baptized in water, if you do not follow and obey Him and serve Him as
Lord and Master, then your faith is useless. If you are living in sin
you prove yourself to be the son of the devil. If we follow Jesus we
will obey His words and sin no more. We will be led by the Holy
Spirit and we will bear fruit of repentance. We will do the works
that He prepared for us to do, but if we do not produce the fruit
then we will get cut off and burned, then we will fail.
Many people start out in
life to do certain things. Many want to become doctors. They drop out
of school. Many want to become pilots but they never fly and never
become a pilot. You can believe you are saved but if you do not
follow and obey Jesus Christ, if you do not live according to His
words then you are just fooling yourself. You can quote Bible verses,
you can know the Bible, you can even have your own church, but if you
do not comply with the requirements of Jesus Christ, His words as
recorded in the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, then you will
not enter His kingdom. Jesus said that many will say to Him on that
day:"Lord, Lord did we not do many works in Your name? We cast
out demons, we healed the sick and He was a to them:"Go away I
never knew you." They never had a real relationship with Jesus
Christ, because they never obeyed Him. They never got to know Him,
they never received Him, they never heard His voice, they never
followed Him. They believed they were saved, but they were just
Most Christians are
deceived. They believe they are saved, but they are on their way to
hell because they don't know Jesus Christ. Do you know Jesus? Do you
know His voice? Are you following Him or do you just believe in vain
that you are saved while you are on your way to hell? Do not be
deceived. Faith alone cannot save you. You have to fulfill the
requirements of Jesus Christ, you have to obey His words. You have to
follow Him and serve Him until the very end or else you will not
enter His kingdom.
May Jesus bless you.
