Salvation is not an easy matter, like so many have been told and made to believe. It is not about just believing in Jesus Christ, but it is about submitting to Him, following and obeying him until the very end, living our lives to please Him. Salvation will cost you. It will cost you everything. it might even cost you your life.
The only way to have salvation is to follow and obey Jesus Christ, to give up everything for Him, and to do what He requires of us. The first thing that you need to do, if you want to have salvation, is to make up your mind whether you are willing to sacrifice your life, everything to give up everything to follow and obey Jesus Christ. You have to count the cost and make up your mind whether you are willing to submit to Jesus and to live as He requires of you, and to do what He requires of you. If you are not willing to do that you will be wasting your time.
If you have made up your mind that you do not want to live the way that you are doing now and end up in hell, and would rather follow and obey Jesus Christ, then you need to speak to Jesus. Go on your knees and humble yourself before Him. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Accept Him as your Lord and your Master and submit yourself to Him. Call out to Him for forgiveness of your past sins. Repent of those sins, plead His forgiveness, with remorse and contriteness, and commitment to follow and obey Jesus Christ until the end of your life, to immediately stop sinning and remove from your life those things that Jesus does not approve of, all sin, all unrighteousness; to submit your life to Him to live your life to please Him, as a sacrifice and to Jesus.
You have to be committed to immediately stop sinning, turn away from your lifestyle of sin, lustfulness, self-gratification and going after the things of the world, and you must be intent on following Jesus and obeying Him, and on living according to His commands, to submit your life to Him totally. Pray, cry out to Jesus ask His forgiveness, with sincerity of heart and commit yourself to Him to follow and obey Him, and He will give you a peace in your heart like you have never experienced before.
The next thing you do is you obey Jesus and you are baptized in water, for the washing off of your sin, so that you can bury your old life, the old man of sin, in the water and come out of that water, a new man, a new woman, born again and ready to follow and obey Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ promised His Holy Spirit to come and dwell in, and be with those who commit to follow Him and who repent and who are baptized in water. Ask Jesus to fill you with the Holy Spirit, His Spirit, who will be with you until the very end, He will never leave you and He will never forsake you, but will guide you into all truth.
People ask which part of the Bible they must read. Read the words of Jesus, the gospel as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, those are the words of eternal life, to those who obey them. Jesus Christ is the only way. His words are the only words that can save if we obey them. Those who disobey Jesus will perish. Read the words of Jesus and let them speak to you. Read them prayerfully, and let the Holy Spirit make them come alive in you, to bring life in you.
Pray for the Baptism and the Holy Spirit, yearn for Jesus dwelling inside of you. Clean up your life. The Holy Spirit will convict you all the things that He wants you to change, things that you have to get rid of, changes that you have to make in your life, in order to be pleasing to Jesus. Obey the Holy Spirit when He speaks in your heart.
Do not run after people. Do not look for other Christians. Do not look for people to follow, but work on your relationship with Jesus Christ. Seek Him in prayer. Let your mind be on Jesus. Let the words of Jesus Christ be in your mind and let His Spirit fill you. Be responsive. Pray ask Him to put His mind, His thoughts into you, and He will speak to you, in your spirit. He will reveal Himself to you and you will get to know Him for real.
To follow Jesus Christ is all about our relationship with Him, which is a spiritual relationship; His Spirit together with our spirit, us yielding to Him and doing what He requires of us. Do not doubt Jesus but put your mind on Him. Put your heart on Him. Seek Him with all your heart. Work on your relationship with Him, through prayer. Dedicate your life to Him and obey Him, obey His words and obey when His Spirit speaks in your heart. Do not doubt Him. Do not ask other people their advice and their opinion. Trust Jesus and He will guide you. He will reveal Himself to you. He will speak to you in dreams and visions and He will speak to you in your spirit, in various ways. You will see the hand of God moving in your life, and if you stay with Jesus you will get to know Him better and better every day.
Dedicate your life to Jesus and seek Him with all your heart. Let Him fill your life, your heart, your whole being, and He will be a father to you, and you will be a child to Him. It is all about our relationship with Jesus, knowing Him as Lord, serving Him as Master and experiencing Him as God Almighty. Seek Him with all your heart, obey Him, and stay with Him until the very end.
May Jesus bless you.

.We all must walk on that narrow road towards that-one narrow gate set-up by Jesus Christ, in order for The Eternal~Souls who have been truly saved-through repentance of all sins and daily-following the ways of Jesus Christ in order to enter The Almighty God's Eternal Kingdom of Heaven. Your Eternal~Souls are 'THAT~IMPORTANT TO THE ALMIGHTY GOD.' 'THE ALMIGHTY GOD is providing you with every~opportunities.' '100.00%~ONLY SEEK GOD FIRST, THROUGH JESUS CHRIST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, 100.00%~ONLY.'ReplyDelete
