Most people, even believers, do not know who Jesus Christ is and therefore they do not regard Him. Most believers do not realize who Jesus really is and therefore they hold on to other things; they do not hold on to Jesus they hold on to their church, their traditions, their Bible, their beliefs, because they do not know Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the King of kings, He is the Lord of lords, He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. All things were made by Him and for Him, and through Him, and in Him all things hold together. Without Jesus Christ we can do nothing. Jesus is the way and the truth and the life. If we believe the words of Jesus, the gospel of Jesus Christ, as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and if we obey Him, repent, be baptized in water, Seek Him with all our heart, He will give His Spirit in us, to guide and teach us. He will reveal Himself to us and we will know Him for real, we will know who Jesus is and we will hold on to Him.
Those who truly know Jesus hold on to Him. They let go of all other things, they forsake all other things and they hold on to Jesus. They go after Him because they know that Jesus Christ is the only way. Are you holding onto Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.
