Follow Jesus NOT the 10 Commandments

There is much confusion among Christian believers whether they should obey the Ten Commandment, the law of Moses, when they come to faith in Jesus Christ. Salvation is through obedience to the gospel of Jesus Christ, not through keeping, observing, the law of Moses or the Ten Commandments. You need to be born again to enter the kingdom of God.

Jesus said that unless a man is born of water and of the Spirit of God he cannot enter the kingdom of God. Jesus Christ came to take away the sins of the world and He takes away the sin of those who obey Him, who obey His gospel.

The commands of Jesus Christ are different from the Ten Commandments or the law of Moses. Jesus Christ commands us to repent of all sin, to turn to Him and to be baptized in water, to be filled with a Holy Spirit so that we can come into communion with Him.

We must be born again born of water, through baptism, and born of the Spirit of God that comes and dwells in us and guides and teaches us. If you decide to stop sinning and then observe the 10 commandments it cannot save you. The law of Moses required a blood sacrifice for the forgiveness of sin, for the blotting out of sin. Jesus Christ came and He Himself became the perfect sacrifice. He took on Himself the sin of the world, to take away the guilt of sin for those who obey Him, who accept Him and who serve Him, those who obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. Salvation is through Jesus Christ alone, not through keeping the commandments.

We cannot have salvation without Jesus Christ, but if we follow Jesus we must turn away from all unrighteousness and bear good fruit. Sin separates us from Jesus. Even the slightest disobedience separates us from Him. He does not tolerate disobedience but He does not require us to keep the law of Moses. He requires of us to obey His commands, to repent and be baptized as He commanded His disciples. He said: Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I commanded you.”

Salvation is through obedience to Jesus Christ, and when we obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, His Words, if we repent and turn to Jesus and we are baptized in water for the washing off of our sin, and we embrace Jesus with all our heart, we obey His commandments, then he gives His Holy Spirit in us, to come and dwell with us. We come into communion with Jesus Christ, we are led by the Holy Spirit, we follow and obey Jesus Christ.

Without Jesus we can do nothing. You cannot save yourself by obeying the 10 commandments. Only Jesus can save us, but we have to obey Him. We have to be led by the Holy Spirit. We have to be in close relationship with Jesus. His sheep hear His voice, they listen to Him and they follow Him. The unbeliever, those who are not born again of the Spirit of God, do not hear the voice of God, and many who are born again have not been taught to listen to Jesus, and that is why they do not follow Him. That is why they do not know Him. We have to be led by the Holy Spirit. His sheep hear His voice. They listen to Him and they follow Him. It is not just a matter of living holy, righteous and without sin, it is about living in obedience to Jesus Christ.

Jesus said:”if you do not remain in Me you cannot bear fruit.” If we are not led by the Holy Spirit and we do not serve and follow Jesus under the guidance of His Spirit, we cannot be pleasing to Him. It is all about our relationship with Jesus Christ. If we follow Jesus we will not sin, because there is no sin in Him and he will not guide us into sin. We do not become Jews and we do not take on the law of Moses when we believe in Jesus Christ. We accept Jesus, we embrace Him, we follow and obey Him, and He saves those who submit themselves to Him; who accept Him as their Lord and Master.

There is no other way to have salvation. There is no other way to enter the kingdom of heaven, but through Jesus Christ, the Living Way. He is the way and the truth and the life. He is alive, but you have to obey Him to get to know Him. You have to obey His words, turn from sin, turn from a going after your own desires. Turn to Jesus, repent and be baptized in water, as He commanded. Seek Him with all your heart and He will give His Spirit in you to teach you and guide you. You will experience Jesus Christ for real, and you will know Him. You will see His kingdom. He will teach and guide you in all things but, you have to stay with Him until the very end to enter His kingdom. There is only one way to have eternal life and that is Jesus Christ. Obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. Seek Him with all your heart and you will find Him. Stay with Him until the very end, and you will have life.

May Jesus bless you.
