The only way to have eternal life is if you FOLLOW Jesus Christ. You can only follow Jesus Christ if you obey His words as written in the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), and then He will reveal Himself to you, you will get to know Him for real. He will give His Holy Spirit to guide you every step of the way.
If you do not stay focused on Jesus alone, then you will stray, you will not be able to be pleasing to Him. If you allow anything to distract you from OBEYING and FOLLOWING Jesus Christ, you will perish! Jesus Christ ALONE is the way and the truth and the life. Do you KNOW Jesus Christ and are you following Him ALONE?
Do not allow yourself to be distracted. Do not follow after people, do not listen to them, do not seek their advice. Seek Jesus, UNTIL you find Him and then STAY with Him and follow HIM, every day UNTIL the very end.
May Jesus bless you.
