Most Christian believers are not serious about following Jesus. They just want salvation. They don't want to go into hell, when they die, but they are not interested in Jesus. What they do not realize is that Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY to eternal life, not just believing in Him, but following and obeying Him.
If you do not OBEY the teachings of Jesus and do not FOLLOW after Him, you will no way enter heaven. Going to church, reading the Bible, confessing to be a Christian, will not save you.
You need to get serious about following Jesus. Put your mind on Jesus and do what He commanded. Repent, from your heart. Stop sinning. Stop going after your own desires and the things of the world. Be baptized in water. Live holy. Live according to the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Communicate with Jesus, pray, seek Him with all your heart and He will come and dwell with you. You will experience His presence. He will give His Holy Spirit in and with you to teach and guide you, but you need to seek Him.
If we seek Him we find Him, if we draw closer to Him, He draws closer to us. Stop following after other people. Stop seeking the advice of others. If you want eternal life you have to follow the advice and guidance of Jesus, not that of other Christians. If you need guidance and direction, PRAY, ask Jesus. He will give it to you. That is the only way that you can follow Jesus. That is what the Bible tells you and that is the advice that true followers of Jesus will give you.
Jesus is ALIVE and He speaks. His sheep HEAR His VOICE and they FOLLOW Him. They do not follow after the pleasures of sin, their own ambitions and other people. Their ambition is to follow Jesus, do what He tells them to do, go where He sends them, achieve His will and for Him to be pleased with them. they live for Him and His kingdom.
Jesus is Lord. If you do not follow and serve Him, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven, His kingdom.
If you want LIFE, get serious about Jesus. Go after Him, serve, follow and obey Him until the very end.
May Jesus bless you.
