Church membership and fellowship with other believers are lethal substitutes for a real relationship with Jesus Christ. If we do not know Jesus Christ for real and we are not led by the Holy Spirit then we have no relationship with Him and He will say to us:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.”
Bible study is also no substitute for HEARING from Jesus Christ. He said:”My sheep LISTEN to My voice and they FOLLOW Me.” If we do not HEAR His voice. LISTEN and FOLLOW Him then we are not His sheep and all the Bible study that we might do will be of no benefit to us because we do not hear from the Master Himself, we have no relationship with Him. Bible study is a lethal substitute for your relationship with Jesus Christ.
Do you PRAY and WAIT on the Lord, LISTEN to Him and FOLLOW Him every day? If not, you are not a child of God. “Those who are led by the SPIRIT OF GOD, they are the sons of God.”(Romans 8:14) Are you led by the Spirit of God or have you found yourself some LETHAL SUBSTITUTES?
May Jesus bless you.
