God has no use for cowards and conformists
God does not work through the multitudes, or through organizations. He works through individuals whom He calls and who are willing to follow Him in faith, listening to His voice, obeying Him and doing what He tells them to do. In the end the glory goes to God, because He does not share His glory with anyone.
God does not use cowards or conformists, those who look for strength in numbers, those who are always looking for human fellowship, those who go with the flow, popular opinion and convention. That is why most Christian believers are not suitable for the kingdom of heaven. They are not willing to follow Jesus. They want to join a group, a church, be part of the establishment. They want to associate with something that is accepted and recognized by the world. They are not willing to follow Jesus and be associated with Him.
God never works through great numbers, neither through cowards. All throughout history He used and still does use the champions, brave men and women of faith, who trust in Him.
You have to be willing to totally put your trust in Jesus and follow Him. If you obey Jesus, repent and are baptized, He will give His Holy Spirit in you to teach and guide you, every step of the way, but you have to trust Him and stay with Him all the way, every day, until the end. "The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever." 1 John 2:17. You can only do the will of God, if you trust and follow Jesus, under guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Are you willing to put your trust in Jesus, and follow Him, or do you want to go along with the world that is passing away?
May Jesus bless you.
