Jesus Christ requires absolute obedience from those who wish to follow Him, even in the smallest of things. Many believers will never get on with their relationship with Jesus because they refuse to obey Him.
Jesus requires of us that we repent, turn away from all sin and be baptized in water. Many believers refuse to be baptized in water. They think that they can only believe in Jesus and then have salvation. They will not get on in their relationship with Jesus.
If we do not obey Him, we cannot follow Him. Jesus promised the baptism in the Holy Spirit to those who repent and are baptized in water. Most believers never receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit because they refuse to be baptized in water.
If we are not willing to obey Jesus even in the smallest things, we will not obey nor follow Him in the greater things.
If we wish to follow Jesus and have eternal life, we have to obey Him in all things, or else we will not enter His kingdom.
May Jesus bless you.
