To BE perfect, to BE holy, to BE righteous, to BE baptized in water are requirements for entry into the kingdom of Heaven. If you want eternal life you HAVE to OBEY Jesus Christ. You HAVE TO obey His words. You HAVE TO deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow Jesus Christ EVERY DAY.
It is NOT OPTIONAL it is a COMMAND.
Jesus commanded us to BE HOLY. To be holy means to separate yourself UNTO GOD, to KEEP yourself UNSTAINED from the world, to stay away from sin and unrighteousness. That is what Jesus requires of us IF we want eternal life.
When asked whether only few are being saved Jesus Christ answered:”Straight is the gate and narrow is the door that leads to eternal life and FEW there be that find it. Strive HARD because many, I tell you, will try very hard and not be able.”(Luke 13:23)
Are YOU perfect, holy, righteous, obedient to Jesus Christ and striving hard to enter the narrow door? Because FEW will find it.
May Jesus bless you.
Earlier this year when I came upon your blog, my ideal were different. I thought, ok he speaks a hard truth, but where is his love. I believe I even posted that once. But today my eyes have been open and I can resoundingly say YES to these questions. We ARE to be perfect free from sin and we are free from sin when we believe what Jesus did on the cross freed us. His Spirit enables us to be free from sin, because sin cannot dwell with God, and God is in us. So thank you for continuing to speak truth. Much appreciated!
so In Love with GOD JESUS and His Spirit The call to Gods Holiness i realize…. if GOD calls me to it he shall enable me I desire N JESUS is raising UP Light n Salt I AM Hungry to PLEASE JESUS
