The Biggest Threat for Serious Jesus Followers

To be a child of God means to be a
follower of Jesus Christ, as Paul also wrote in Romans chapter 8
verse 14: "Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they
are the children of God," they are the sons of God.
People always look for an example. They
look for someone to follow, but the biggest threat for a child of God
is to start running after and following after other believers,
following after preachers, prophets, so-called men and women of God.
The biggest threat for a child of God is to turn his eyes off Jesus,
to put his trust in men, because then he turns away from God.
We can only be pleasing to Jesus if we
stay focused on Him. We can only follow Him and we can only bear
fruit for His kingdom, if we get our wisdom and our direction from
Him, not from other people, not from the books and writings of other
people, but from Jesus Christ Himself, from the Holy Spirit. He
promised the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth to come and dwell in,
and be with those who earnestly seek Him, those who wish to follow
Him and who obey His words. Repent and be baptized, stop sinning,
seek Jesus with all your heart, seek the indwelling of His Holy
Spirit in you. The Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth and will
teach you everything that you need to know, but as soon as you start
listening to Christians, a brother, a sister, a prophet, and you turn
away from Jesus, then you are in danger of hellfire.
That has been the downfall of many
serious followers of Jesus. They started following other people.
There is nobody else that is worthy to be followed. It is dangerous
to follow after men, it is fatal. We have to trust in Jesus alone and
follow Him. Ask Him and He will guide you. Wait on Him, seek Him
with all your heart, draw closer to Him and He will draw closer to
you. Do not be satisfied with anything but hearing from Jesus,
whatever any other man or woman of God tells you, whatever revelation
they have had, take that to Jesus. Whatever people tell you, go and
consult Jesus about it. Ask Jesus, it is Jesus whom we must follow to
have eternal life. Remember, the biggest threat for a child of God is
to start following after people, because then he's not following
Jesus anymore.
Follow Jesus and you will have life.
Jesus Christ alone is the way and the truth and the life.
May Jesus bless you.
