The real Christian life is living a life that is determined by the Holy Spirit, by Jesus Christ dwelling in you. It is not about Bible study, it is not about going to church. It is about the reality of Jesus Christ, knowing Him for real. Most professing Christians do not know Jesus Christ and they are not following Him. They are just playing religion. Jesus Christ reveals Himself as real to those who obey His words, the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you take Jesus Christ seriously and you obey His words then He will reveal Himself to you; you will know His voice and you will follow Him every day, you will live your life to please Him. He will guide you in everything, because you will seek His guidance in everything.
Jesus Christ commands those who believe in Him to repent, to turn away from living the normal worldly life, that all people live. All people are driven by their own desires, their fears and anxiety, peer pressure, they live in the world and I want to adapt to the world, they want to survive in this world. But if we believe in Jesus then we are not of this, world we are of kingdom of God and therefore we have to repent from worldly things. We have to repent from sin and be holy, we have to repent from following after the ways of the world, from following after out own mind, and we have to follow after Jesus Christ. We cannot follow after Jesus if we do not repent, and once we have repented we must obey Jesus and be baptized in water. If we are serious with Jesus and we seek to truly follow Him, if we go after Him, seek him in prayer, and live according to His words as recorded in the Gospels, (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), holy righteous and in obedience to Him, then He will give His Spirit in us, Jesus Christ Himself will come and dwell in us, and He will reveal Himself to us, He will speak to us , He will guide us, He will teach us, but we have to stay focused on Him. We have to go after Him.
The normal Christian life is a life that is determined by the guidance of Jesus Christ in us. If we do not have the Holy Spirit in us then we cannot follow Jesus. If Jesus is not in us then we are not a temple of His Holy Spirit and we do not belong to Him. Most professing Christians are playing church, they are playing religion. They are educating themselves with the Bible but they have no knowledge of God. They don’t know Jesus Christ, they are not following Him . They are following after people, after the teachings of people. They go to church, they listen to other people, they follow their own mind, they follow their own feelings, and follow after the world and they believe that they have salvation, but they are deceived because they do not know Jesus Christ. They are living like the normal worldly Christian lives, the person who is lost. If you truly know Jesus Christ and you have His Spirit dwelling in you and you follow His guidance everyday in everything, you ask Him about everything, you go to Him with everything. Jesus is your life, you become part of His kingdom. He reveals Himself to you, He tells you things to come because you follow Jesus Christ, the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
Do you know Jesus? Has He revealed Himself to you? Are you serious about Jesus Christ? Do you know Him? Have you met Him? Have you obeyed Him? Have you repented and been baptized in water? Do you seek Him with all your heart in prayer until He answers you? Do you know Jesus Christ for real? Are you a real follower of Jesus Christ? Are you a child of God? Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God. If we are not led by the Spirit of Christ, in us, Jesus living in us, then we are not of Him. Are you a real a child of God? Do you know Him and do you follow Him?
May Jesus bless you.
