Many Christian believers do not understand WHO Jesus Christ really is. To many He is just the instrument of their salvation, a salvation which they believe that they have.
They do not understand that Jesus Christ is the Highest and Final Authority, the judge of all mankind. All power and all authority belongs to Him, in heaven and on earth.
Salvation is not just a matter of confessing that you believe in Jesus. It is a matter of accepting Him as your Lord and Master and serving Him. Believing in Jesus requires that you obey Him, obey His words, His teachings, and live according to His commands.
You cannot fool Jesus. You cannot lie to Him. You cannot hide anything from Him. Many only pay Jesus lip service. They are pretenders They think that He does not see and know their thoughts and wicked deeds. They forget that Jesus said:" I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29“If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30“If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell."Matthew 5:28-30.
Many listen to their lying preachers who tell them that Jesus was not serious. They do not fear Jesus, because they do not know Him.
If you know Jesus and really believe His words you will fear Him and do what He commanded.
You will serve and obey Him and stay with Him. You will repent of all evil and live holy, righteously. You will not willfully sin. If you stumble and commit sin, you will immediately repent and plead His forgiveness. You will guard your relationship with Him above all things. "There is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do." Hebrews 4:13.
Do you know Jesus as Lord and Master? Do you follow, serve and obey Him? Is Jesus your LORD?
May Jesus bless you.
