Many people believe that they are saved and they think that they can serve Jesus in their own way. They interpret the Bible their way, they go to church, they debate with other people but they have no relationship with Jesus Christ. Not many people will be saved, only those who follow Jesus and OBEY Him, who serve Him HIS WAY, those who reply WHRN HE CALLS, those who listen to His voice and follow Him, who DO what He tells them to do. On occasion they asked Jesus whether those who are being saved are few. I read from Luke 13:23.
“Then said one unto Him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, 24Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and He shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: 26Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in Thy presence, and Thou hast taught in our streets. 27But He shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.”
Many people think that because they go to church and they fellowship with other believers that they are children of God. It is only when you OBEY Jesus, when you WAIT ON HIM, when you SERVE HIM that you have a relationship with Him. Many of those who go to church, who believed that they are saved will stand before Jesus and He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you.” You cannot serve God your way. You cannot respond to Him when you wish. When Jesus calls you must go. YOU GO WHERE HE SENDS YOU AND YOU DO WHAT HE TELLS YOU TO DO, WHEN HE TELLS YOU TO DO IT, or else He will say to you ”Go away I never knew you.”
Once the door is closed many people will knock on that door and say:”Lord, Lord!” And He will say to them: “I don’t know you! Go away! I don’t know where you are from.” Most believers do not know Jesus, most believers WILL NOT FOLLOW HIM. Most believers do not serve Jesus, they serve themselves. What will Jesus say to YOU and to ME when we stand before Him? Did we respond when He called us? Did we go where He sent us and did we do what He told us to do?
Those with ears will hear!
May Jesus bless you.
