Sinning less will not save your soul from hell. Being religious, going to church, reading your Bible, even praying, will not save you. The only One who can Christ. The only one who can save you from the bondage of sin and from the guilt of your sin is Jesus Christ.
The only way to have eternal life and not end up in damnation,is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Master and to serve Him as your King; to repent, turn away from your previous lifestyle of sin and self gratification, doing what you please, and to submit yourself to Jesus,to plead His pardon, for Him to forgive you, for Him to give you mercy and save you from damnation. Then to stop sinning immediately, change your life to live your life in such a way that you obey Him, and are pleasing to Him, to be totally devoted to Jesus Christ.
Jesus said that if we do not love Him above all things, if we do not honor Him and regard Him above father, or mother, wife, children, even our own life then we are not worthy of Him. We have to submit to Him; dedicate our lives to Him and live in utter obedience to Him, repent, be baptized in water for the washing off of your, sin and sin no more, Turn away from those things that you regarded more than Him, those things that were important in your life and put Jesus Christ first. Love Him and obey Him.
Once you’ve been baptized in water and you have dedicated yourself to Him, Jesus promises to give you the seal of His acceptance, the baptism in the Holy Spirit. He will give His Holy Spirit to come and dwell in you, to be with you, to comfort you, to guide you, to assure you, to guide you in His ways.
Jesus is a jealous God. He does not tolerate other Gods before us. If we regard anything or anybody else above Him then we are not worthy of Him. Jesus said that if we disown Him, deny Him, He will certainly also deny us. He is faithful. He will not leave us, nor forsake us; He will not throw us away, He will not push us away from Him but if we desert Him, we run away from Him, if we reject Him then we are not worthy of Him and we will not enter His kingdom. We have to live our lives to be pleasing to Jesus, live according to His commands, His words. We must be His disciples. We have to love Him, we have to be in close relationship with Him, in prayer. If we love our TV and our entertainment more than Jesus Christ we are not worthy of Him. If we rather watch TV and play video games than to pray and to be with Jesus, then those things are more important to us and we will not enter his kingdom. We have to be faithful to Him, we have to live our lives to please Him. To sin means separation from Jesus to sin means rebellion against Jesus, disregard for Him. To sin means to despise the Grace and the mercy that He gave to us when he accepted us as His own.
Jesus Christ requires our total love and dedication or else we are not fit for His kingdom. If we do not stay within every day and seek to be pleasing to Him, if we do not submit ourselves to Him, listen to His voice, seek His voice seek, His guidance, every day, if we do not cherish and appreciate the presence of His Holy Spirit and make time to pray, listen be with Him, then He will say to us: “Go away, I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.” If we deny Him He will certainly also deny us. As we sow, so shall we reap. If we do not work on our relationship with Jesus and if we do not put everything into it, we will not enter His kingdom.
Jesus warned that many will try to enter His kingdom, many will try hard but will not be able. Jesus requires our utter dedication. Is our love and dedication, our relationship with Him worthy of being in His kingdom with Him for ever?
Do we truly love Jesus Christ? Are we worthy of Him?
May Jesus bless you.
