It is not enough just to believe in Jesus Christ. We have to embrace Him. We have to open our arms and accept Him. In order for us to embrace Jesus Christ and hold on to Him we have to let go of everything else. We cannot embrace Jesus and hold on to Him if we are still holding on to other things. We have to embrace Jesus Christ and His teachings, everything about Jesus, and we have to go after Him, follow Him. We have to embrace His words, obey His words.
We have to repent, turn away from everything else, let go of it, and go after Jesus. Be baptized in water. Seek His Spirit, embrace Him, invite Him into our lives Seek Him with all our power, with everything that is in us. Embrace Him and Jesus Christ will show himself to you as real. Jesus Christ has no pleasure in a half-hearted believer, a person who just wants to believe in Him for salvation.
Jesus requires of us that we embrace Him with all our heart, with all our power, that we serve Him. If we truly love Him, if we love Him we will obey His words and he will reveal Himself to us. We will get to know Him for real. Most people only want the things of Jesus. They want salvation, they want His blessings, they want His healing, they want His forgiveness, but they don’t want Him. They don’t want His words, they don’t want His commands. They don’t want His discipline, and that is why He will say to them:”Go away, I never knew you.” They never embraced Him. Many just want His gifts. Many just want his Holy Spirit gifts, they want to be baptized in the Holy Spirit, they want gift of healing and they want to spiritual gifts for themselves for their own glory. Many churches, many pastors just want the gifts of God to glorify themselves, to profit for themselves, but they don’t want Jesus Christ. If we do not embrace Jesus and go after Him with all our power, then it is all in vain. He knows the heart of every person. We cannot fool Him. If we do not want Jesus and we do not embrace Him with all our heart, we will not have life.
Have you embraced Jesus? Do you go after Him with all your power? Have you given up everything for Jesus and do you truly love Him? There is only one way to follow and obey Jesus and to have eternal life, and that is to embrace Him with all our power, to love Him and to stay with Him go after Him until the very end. Embrace Jesus and you will live.
May Jesus bless you.
