Jesus Christ calls us to LIFE in Him. He calls us to a NEW WAY of living, HIS WAY. He calls us to FOLLOW Him and live ACCORDING TO HIS COMMANDS and IF we STAY with Him, OBEY Him and ENDURE with Him until the very end He promises us ETERNAL LIFE. In the Revelation of John Jesus promises those who OVERCOME that they will sit with Him on His throne just like He sits on His Father’s throne because He overcame. (Revelation 3:21) The PRIZE of eternal life is only for those who OVERCOME. New Life is only IN CHRIST.
Many people believe that they will have eternal life just because they BELIEVE IN Jesus Christ but they are not willing to follow Him on the NEW WAY, HIS WAY. They are not willing to OBEY Him, they don’t love Him, they don’t care for Him. They just care for eternal life, salvation, but they won’t have it. Most believers never met Jesus Christ, they never started following Him, they never OBEYED Him. Many believers just repeated a “sinners prayer” after somebody else and then they believed that they had salvation, and they still believe it until they die but they will PERISH.
We have to FOLLOW Jesus Christ, be IN HIM, IN HIS WILL to have eternal life. Eternal life is IN Jesus Christ ALONE. Very few ever start following Jesus Christ and of those who do start following Him, most of them LOOK BACK. They go back to the world, they go back to their own ways, they go back to living like the rest of the world. They are not following the commands of Jesus Christ, they are not IN HIS WAY, they are not IN HIM and they will perish.
NEW LIFE is IN CHRIST for those who CONTINUE, who ENDURE until the end but those who look back and go back to their former lifestyle, to sin, to living like the rest of the world, they will perish. If we LOOK BACK we are not worthy of Jesus Christ. There is only ONE WAY and that is: KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS, OBEY His words. FOLLOW HIM every day and live to please Him, stay with Him until the very end or you will not have eternal life. There is only ONE WAY and that is IN CHRIST.
Are you IN CHRIST DOING His will every day? Did you ever START following Jesus Christ or are you just deceived like most believers who hope for eternal life but they are not on THE WAY? They are not following Jesus Christ. Only those who endure with Jesus until the end will overcome and will have the PRIZE of eternal life.
May Jesus bless you.
