There are two types of Christian believers in this world. There are the true followers of Jesus and there are the foolish believers. Most professing Christians are just foolish believers. They believe in Jesus Christ for salvation but they do not follow nor do they obey Him. Jesus Christ commanded that those who want eternal life must follow Him. They must repent, turn away from sin, and from going after their own desires, and they must obey Him. They must go after Him. He is the way and the truth and the life, and if we follow Him He will guide us into all truth, He will guide us through the narrow gate into the kingdom of heaven. But if we refuse to follow Jesus, then we will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Most Christians are just foolish believers. They believe that they have salvation but they do not know nor do they follow and obey Jesus Christ. They just believe that they are saved based on Bible verses and on what other people have told them, but they have no relationship with Jesus Christ. They will be terribly disappointed when they stand before Jesus and He says to them:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.”
The true believers of Jesus Christ follow Him every day, they were the ones who wrote the old gospel songs like: “Follow, I will follow Thee my Lord, every passing day” and also “I’m following Jesus, each step of the way.” Dear friend, are you a true follower of Jesus Christ. Have you repented of sin and of your own ways and have you been baptized? Have you been filled with the Holy Spirit and do you follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit every day? Do you go after Jesus Christ? Or are you just a foolish believer that believes that you are saved and that you can carry on in sin, live your life to please yourself and just wait for the rapture, wait for Jesus to come and pick you up because you believe in Him?
Those are the foolish ones, who will be disappointed, who will end up in damnation with the children of disobedience. If we do not follow and obey Jesus Christ every day if, we do not truly know Him, and listen to His voice, then we are not of Him and we will not have eternal life. we will not enter His kingdom. Do not be deceived, there is only one way to have life eternal life, that is to know follow and obey Jesus Christ and stay with Him until the very end. How real is your relationship with the Living God, Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
