Jesus guides, speaks to, and teaches each and every disciple that follows Him. Jesus calls us to discipleship. He says:” Follow Me.” Most believers do not know Jesus. They believe some gospel by which they are saved if they just believe in Jesus Christ, and that is a false gospel.
The true gospel of Jesus Christ is about following Him, obeying Him, being led by the Holy Spirit. Jesus said to the disciples that He will not leave them as orphans but He will send the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, His own Spirit, to come and dwell in them, to be with them for ever; to teach and guide them and that was promised to each and every person who accepts Jesus Christ and who follows Him, who obeys Him, who repents, turns to Jesus, seeks Him with all his heart, is baptized in water, Jesus will guide him. He will speak to him. If we need wisdom we must ask of Jesus and He will give freely. How can we follow Him if we do not hear Him, if we are not led by the Holy Spirit? We cannot just go by reading the Bible and assuming certain things. We have to hear from Him.
His sheep hear His voice. They listen to Him. They follow Him. If we seek Him, we find Him. If we are serious about following Him He will guide us, but we must seek the kingdom of God. We must seek to follow Him. We must seek His will, not our own will, not our own desires, not our own plans, not own ambitions. If we’re not seeking the kingdom of God then we are not serious about following Jesus Christ and He will not answer us. If we ask him about our own affairs He will not answer us, but He will guide us into all truth, He will guide us into His will, He will guide us into fruitfulness for His kingdom. Jesus will speak to each and every one of us if we would just seek Him with all our heart and seek His will, His kingdom, His righteousness, His approval, then He will speak to us. We will clearly hear Him, but we have to seek His will, we have to seek His kingdom, not our own. Jesus guides each and every disciple. That is what he calls us for. He guides us into being obedient children of God that do the will of God, that build the kingdom of God, that are occupied with the kingdom of God, but we have to set our mind, our heart, our everything, on Jesus and seek to please Him. Then He will reveal Himself to us.
Many think that they can use Jesus for their own benefit, to enrich themselves. God is not fooled. We have to seek His kingdom, His will, His approval. He will speak to us, He will reveal Himself to us and we will get to know Him for real. The true child of God hears from God every day. The truth child of God is led by the Holy Spirit. Those who assume that they are saved will have a terrible surprise when Jesus says to them on the day that they die:”Go way I never knew you.” We have to know Him, hear from Him and be led by Him. Seek Him with all your heart and He will reveal Himself to you.
May Jesus bless you.
