Many Christian believers are spiritual adulterers. To be a child of God means to be a follower of Jesus Christ, to be faithful unto Him, to obey Him and to live our lives to please Him. We must live according to His Commandments and do what is pleasing to Him, but many believers run after people. They are unfaithful to Jesus Christ. Most of them are not following Jesus. They follow after their own mind, and they follow after preachers and other people. They seek the advice of men, but they do not follow Jesus. They don’t go to Jesus.
There’s only one way to have eternal life and that is to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel of Jesus Christ are His words, the words that He spoke, as they will also recorded in the gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. If we take seriously the words of Jesus and we obey Him; we repent and are baptized in water and we seek Him with all our heart, then He will reveal himself to us. He will come and dwell in us and with us. He will give His Spirit in us to guide us, but we have to be faithful to Him. We have to follow Him. We have to trust Him. As soon as we start following after people, seeking the advice of others, we are fornicating, then we become adulterers with the world, become adulterers because we are unfaithful to Jesus Christ, and adulterers will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
We have to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ and we have to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit as the Apostle Paul also wrote in 1st Thessalonians chapter 1 verse 7. He wrote:”When the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing contribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction away from the presence of God and from the glory of His power, when He comes to be glorified in his saints on that day, to be marveled at among all who have believed.”
Now many people believe. Many Christian believers say they believe but they do not believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. They do not believe neither obey His words. They believe a different gospel. The words of Jesus are the words of eternal life. Jesus Christ is the way and the truth and the life. He speaks and His sheep hear His voice. They listen to Him and they follow Him. They stay faithful to Him. They do not adulterate. They do not listen to other people. They follow Jesus. They seek His guidance and they seek His approval. They do not seek the approval of each other and that of other Christians, other believers. They do not seek the approval of the world. They seek the approval of Jesus. They are faithful to Him, because they seek to please Him. He is their Lord and their Master. They are not spiritual adulterers. They are faithful to the Master.
Are we faithful to Jesus Christ? Do we get our guidance and our teaching, our advice, from Him? Do we follow Jesus, or are we spiritual adulterers? We must stay focused on Jesus, seek Him, pray, wait on Him. Walk with Him. Listen to him obey Him and follow Him every day until the very end.
May Jesus bless you.
