You cannot follow Jesus Christ on an off and on basis, either you are totally committed to Him and focused on Him and follow Him every day or you do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Without holiness no man shall see God. If you are not walking in utter holiness and dedication to Jesus, He will not speak to you. If you do not seek Him and go after Him every day, you do not have a relationship with Him.
Most believers just believe that they are saved but they have no relationship with Jesus because they don’t pray, they are not focused on Him, they do not seek Him. Maybe they read the Bible and they are religious but THEY DO NOT HEAR HIS VOICE because they are not focused on Him. They are as much in the world and of the world as the rest of the world. They are just deceived they believe that they are saved but THEY DON’T KNOW JESUS. His sheep LISTEN to His voice and they FOLLOW Him every day.
Are you LISTENING to His VOICE and are you FOLLOWING HIM? You cannot be joking with your friends the one moment and be following Jesus Christ the next moment. Either you are dedicated to Jesus and to being pleasing to Him all the time or you are just not following Him. You cannot follow Jesus Christ on an off and on basis.
May Jesus bless you.
