If we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Master and we obey Him, repent and be baptized in water, then we are born again, we become children of God and He gives His Spirit in us to guide and to teach
us. He treats us as children because we are born again to be children of God. He looks after us, He cares for us, He disciplines us. He is a better than any earthly father. He will not leave us neither, will He forsake us. Even if we stray God will not leave us, He will not forsake us. He treats us as children. He is better than any earthly father, but we have to listen, we have to obey Him because He cares for us. He guides our footsteps. He speaks to us, but very few you care to listen.
Very few born-again children of God follow after Jesus Christ. They stray, they go away from Him. They fall into sin. They go after their own mind, they go after the rest of the world they do not behave as children of God should behave, but that does not change the faithfulness of God. He still cares for us, He guides our footsteps, He calls us back to Hi. He disciplines us, He speaks to us, but if we persist and carry on in our evil ways, eventually we will perish with the children of disobedience.
Many born-again children of God say that God doesn’t speak to them. He does. They are not listening. They are not interested in hearing what He says. Many are not born, but those who are born again will hear His voice. Those who are serious about doing the will of God, being pleasing to the Father, they will seek Him. They will seek His approval, they will obey His words. Jesus said: “If you love Me, obey My Commandments, and Me and My father will come and live with you, and I will reveal Myself to you.” But most professing Christians only want salvation, they don’t want Jesus and they don’t want God. They just want the good life, they want to please themselves, but they don’t want to go to hell.
God is better than any earthly father, but if we keep on turning our back on him if we keep on disobeying Him, then He will cut us off. Every branch in Christ Jesus, that does not bear fruit, will get cut off and burned. Even though you were a child of God, you will end up in hell if you keep on disobeying Him. Seek and do the will of your father and you will be pleasing in His sight and you will inherit His kingdom, but if you disobey Him you will inherit corruption, you will end up in hell, because God is not mocked. Follow Jesus and obey Him, and your live, disobey Him and you will perish.
May Jesus bless you.
