Make every effort to obey Jesus Christ

Many people profess to be Christians and they believe that they have salvation because they believe in Jesus Christ. Very few people will be saved. Very few people will have eternal life.

Somebody asked Jesus whether those who are being saved are few. I read His words from Luke 13:23,24.

And someone said to Him, “Lord, are there just a few who are being saved?” And He said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able.”

Not everybody will be saved. It is only those who OBEY the gospel of Jesus Christ. What is the gospel of Jesus Christ? The gospel of Jesus Christ is His words, the words He taught as they are also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Those are the words of eternal life and Jesus also commanded his disciples to go and teach those words. We read in Mark 16:15,16.

‘And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. “He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.”’

Those who believe the gospel of Jesus Christ are the ones who will OBEY the gospel of Jesus Christ, who will OBEY His words, who will repent and will be baptized in water and Jesus Christ will reveal Himself to them, He will disclose Him self to them. He will give His Holy Spirit in them to teach them and guide them and be with them every step of the way. They will know Jesus Christ as He also promised.

I also read from the gospels John 14:21. “He who has My commandments and KEEPS THEM IS THE ONE WHO LOVES Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”

If we have the commandments of Jesus, the gospel of Jesus Christ, as recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and we OBEY His words, we REPENT, are baptized in water and we seek Jesus with all out heart, we OBEY His words, then He will reveal himself to us. He will give His Holy Spirit in us and we will become ONE with Him. We must make every effort to obey Jesus Christ. To obey Jesus Christ is extremely difficult. We have to be absolutely determined and be willing to give up everything else for the sake of obeying Jesus Christ and doing what He commanded.

If we do not pick up our cross every day and follow Jesus, then we will not have eternal life. We will not find the narrow door. To pick up your cross means to take up those commandments of Jesus Christ and to obey them, to MAKE EVERY EFFORT to OBEY His words. And then He will REVEAL Himself to you. You will get to KNOW Jesus Christ Himself for REAL. He will guide you and He will teach you and He will give you eternal life IF you make it through the narrow door.

Jesus Christ will say to many who believed that they were saved, He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you you workers of wickedness.” They did not OBEY His words, they did not REPENT, were not baptized in water, never followed Jesus, never got to KNOW Him. They believed they were saved. They were religious, they read their Bibles, they prayed, they went to church, but they never stopped sinning, they never obeyed Jesus Christ, they never truly got to know Him.

We must make EVERY EFFORT to obey Jesus Christ or else we will not enter His kingdom.

May Jesus bless you.
