Many professing Christians have the wrong emphasis. They are busy with unfruitful religious practices that will not get them into heaven. There is only one thing that will determine your eternal destiny and that is your obedience to Jesus.
Jesus said:“Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47“Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like: 48he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. 49“But the one who has heard and has not acted accordingly, is like a man who built a house on the ground without any foundation; and the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great.”Luke 6:46-49.
Many Christian believers think they have salvation but they ignore the words of Jesus. They do not obey Him. They will end up in hell if they do not repent, stop sinning, be baptized in water, and live according to the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. They will not enter heaven if they are not born again of water and of the Spirit of God. They cannot follow Jesus if they do not seek and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Our emphasis must be on Jesus, obeying His words, being guided by Him, through the Holy Spirit that He gives in and with those who seek to follow Him.
Religion, going to church, endless Bible studies and teachings, fellowship with other believers, will not save you.
It is all about Jesus, knowing, obeying and following Him, every day, in all things. Jesus Christ alone is the way the truth and the life. Without Him, we can do nothing. Without Jesus we have no hope of salvation.
Is your emphasis on Jesus, obeying Him, following Him and having His approval? Is Jesus your Lord?
May Jesus bless you.
