Your Ambition

If we are serious about Jesus Christ, about eternity, and salvation, and entering the kingdom of heaven, then it will be our ambition to be pleasing to Jesus in everything that we do. The Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 5:9 “Therefore we also have as our ambition to be pleasing to Him; for we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body according to what he has done whether good or bad.” Why is it important that we be pleasing to Jesus? If we are not pleasing to Him we will not enter His kingdom.

What do we have to do to be pleasing to Him? Jesus said:”If you love Me, obey My commands.” He also said:”Why do you call Me Lord, Lord, and you do not what I say?” If we want to be pleasing to Jesus, we have to obey His gospel, His words the word that He spoke, as also recorded in the Gospels; Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. We must repent of sin and of going after our own desires, seeking our own pleasures, and we must be baptized in water, be filled with the Holy Spirit, and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit to be pleasing to Jesus.

When we wake up in the morning, what is our first thought? Is it our ambition to live our day and our life for Jesus Christ, or do we have other ambitions? If we have other ambitions, then those ambitions will take us away from Jesus and we will not enter His kingdom.

Are we serious about Jesus Christ. Is it our ambition to be pleasing to Him in everything that we do?

May Jesus bless you.

Christian Confusion About The Requirements For Salvation

Most Christian believers are confused about what is required to have salvation. There is only one way to have eternal life and that is to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, His words as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Those are the words of eternal life for those who obey them. Not just some of the verses like some would like to quote, like just believing in Jesus Christ.

If we believe in Jesus Christ we must obey Him. We must obey His commands, His gospel, the words that He spoke, all of the commands of Jesus Christ. We must repent, turn away from sin, turn away from going after our own desires and our own ways, and we have to go after Jesus Christ. Stop sinning and then be baptized in water, and Jesus promised to give His Holy Spirit to come and dwell in those who obey His words, and the Holy Spirit will guide them into all truth.

The words of Jesus Christ are plain and simple. Go and read them in the Gospels; Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and obey them, and Jesus Christ will reveal Himself to you. You will know Him for real. He will guide you into all truth and you will not be confused anymore. People are confused because they listen to other people, obey the words of Jesus, be filled with the Holy Spirit and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit and you will walk in the Light, you will know the truth and the truth will make you free. Jesus Christ is away and the life and the truth, there is no other. Obey Him, obey the gospel of Jesus Christ and you will have life.

May Jesus bless you.

Worry about yourself

Some believers are forever correcting others, telling them what they should be doing. we only need to worry about ourselves. Is Jesus Christ pleased with you and me? Are we doing what He wants us to do?
We cannot fix other people, but Jesus can fix all of us if we submit to Him, if we follow Him and stay with Him. I cannot help you, neither can anybody else help you. That is why my advice to you is:”Go to Jesus.”
Mind your own walk with Jesus. Get serious with Jesus and He will guide you into all truth. Worry about yourself and do not meddle with other people.
If we follow Jesus and do what He requires of us, then we will bear fruit and bring others to Him as well.
May Jesus bless you.

Jesus is Speaking. Are you LISTENING?

Jesus Christ is the good Shepherd and He takes good care of all His sheep, of all those who believe in Him and who have accepted Him.
It is not His will that any of His sheep perish but that they all learn obedience and that they walk in His ways. If they stray or they do wrong, then He speaks to them, and if they do not listen then He speak louder. He often speaks through pain and suffering and when His sheep do not listen, then the pain and the suffering becomes worse, because Jesus cares for them and He wants to turn them from their wicked ways, to walk in His ways, so that they can bear good fruit and not be cut off and burned.
Many of His sheep do not listen and they are severely chastised, and when they keep on persisting in their evil ways they will get cut off. Like Jesus said that every branch in Him that not bear fruit will get cut off and burned, but He speaks first. He warns and He draws them back to Him but if they persist in their evil ways they will perish.
Jesus speaks to each and every one of His sheep. Jesus might be speaking to you now, through pain, suffering, through your circumstances, He is drawing you back to Him. Do you hear His voice? Will you respond, or will you persist in your evil ways and get cut off and burned?
The Spirit of God will not strive with man for ever. We must listen, turn back to Jesus. We have to bear good fruit to bring glory to Him and be suitable for His kingdom.
Jesus is speaking. Are we listening?
May Jesus bless you.

Why Most Christians are DECEIVED

The reason why Christians are being deceived is because they do not really trust Jesus Christ and they do not follow Him. Jesus Christ is the way, and the life and the truth and if we follow Him we will not be in darkness.
It is written that if any man needs wisdom, let him ask of God who gives to all men freely. If we ask Jesus He will guide us into all truth. He gives the Holy Spirit in those who obey Him and who love Him. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth that will guide us into all truth.
The reason why Christians are deceived is because they do not know, nor trust, nor follow Jesus Christ. Are we deceived, or are we walking in truth?
May Jesus bless you.

Moving on to PERFECTION

Practice makes perfect. Through our daily walk with Jesus, learning from Him every day, knowing His voice, and getting to understand His ways, we should become better every day at following Jesus, at doing His will. We should be moving on to perfection, being mature followers of Jesus Christ, sons of God. Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
Are we moving on to perfection in our walk with Jesus, or are we still struggling with the first principles of believing in Jesus, repentance from sin and dead works, and learning obedience from Him? If we do not become mature and move on to perfection we will never be suitable to be true disciples of Jesus Christ.
Are we moving on to perfection?
May Jesus bless you.

The COST of Salvation

Salvation is not free. Jesus Christ did not say:”Just believe in Me and then you will have eternal life.” He said:”Whoever wishes to come after Me must deny himself, pick up his cross every day and come here follow Me.” Salvation will cost you everything. You will have to give up the pleasures of sin, your own life, your own ambitions, your own desires, and submit that all to Jesus Christ, and live your life to please Him. You have to go after Jesus, follow and obey Him until the very end, or else you will not have eternal life.

If we want to live our lives for earthly pleasure we will not have an inheritance in the kingdom of heaven. Where our treasure is there our heart will be also. If we love Jesus we will give up everything and obey Him, follow Him, until the very end. Those who do not follow and obey Jesus will not enter His kingdom. Those who are not willing to pay the cost will not win the prize of eternal life.

May Jesus bless you.
