We prove our love for someone by our deeds. If we love Jesus Christ then we will OBEY Him, we will devote ourselves to Him and nothing will be too much trouble for us to do what is pleasing to Him. Many people think that if they just believe in Jesus and they confess Him that they will be saved but Jesus IS NOT FOOLED BY EMPTY WORDS.
We read in Romans 10:9,10 the words of Paul:“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” We cannot fool Jesus by empty words. We read in Matthew 15:8 “This people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honoureth Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me.”
Jesus also said:”Why do you call Me Lord, Lord and you do not what I say?” Jesus Christ died for sin, if we disobey Him and we continue in sin we PROVE that we HATE Him. If we truly love Jesus nothing will be too much trouble to obey Him and to do what is pleasing to Him.
Jesus said that if you love father or mother or anything above Him you are not worthy of Him. This generation loves the world and the things of the world and they reject the words of Jesus, yet, they think that if they confess with their mouth and say:”I believe in Jesus, I love Jesus” that they will be saved. They are deceived. You cannot fool God. If you love Jesus you will obey Him and you will be UTTERLY faithful unto Him.
A tree is known by its fruit. A bad tree cannot bear good fruit. If you keep on sinning, you have NO RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST whatsoever and your confession of being a Christian is utterly useless because Jesus will say to you:”Go away I never knew you, you worker of wickedness.”
Doe your life, your actions, your devotion to Jesus show that you love Him? Do you spend time with Him? Do you obey His words, as written in the gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the red letter words? If you do not obey those words then your confession of your faith and your love for Jesus, IS A LIE.
You cannot fool Jesus Christ. If you love Him you will obey Him. You will obey every single word that He spoke and nothing will be too much trouble for you, you will UTTERLY obey Jesus Christ. If Jesus is your LORD you will serve Him as LORD. If you love anything more than Jesus, you will perish with those things.
May Jesus bless you.
