Each and every follower of Jesus Christ must work on their own relationship with Jesus, and make sure that He knows them, that they stay with Him and that He is pleased with them. They must endure with Him until the very end. Without Jesus we can do nothing. If we do not remain with Jesus and in utter obedience to Him, following Him and doing His will, then we cannot be fruitful, we cannot be fruitful for the kingdom of God.
Jesus warned that every branch in Him, that does not bear fruit will get cut off and burned. Nothing is more important than our relationship with Jesus Christ. It is only when we remain with Him, when we stay with Him, walk with Him every day, listen to His voice and respond, that we can do what He requires of us, that He can use us, it is only if we make ourselves available to Him and are tuned in to Him, dedicated to Him to serve Him, that we will be useful for His kingdom.
Many believers are busy with their own; religion they walk their own road, they are busy with their own studies of the Bible, the are busy with their own projects for God. They believe in Jesus, and they want to serve Him according to their insight, and according to what other people tell them, what to do, but they don’t have a relationship with Jesus. Many are distracted from following Jesus and they start running after other people. Jesus warned that He will say to many believers in that day that they die, when they stand before Him, He will say to them:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.”
We can only be pleasing to Jesus if our relationship with Him is right, if He is pleased with us. We have to stay close to Him. Work on your relationship with Jesus Christ. There is nothing more important than that. Do not allow anybody or anything to distract you and take you away from Jesus.
If you need wisdom, if you need guidance, pray. Talk to Jesus. Ask Him. Wait on Him. He is faithful and true. He loves you and He cares for you. He will never leave you. He will guide you and He will teach you, but you have to trust Him and stay with Him. Do not leave Jesus. Nothing can pluck you out of His hand, but if you decide to stray, if you go away from Jesus, you are in danger of hellfire, because Jesus will not hold you back.
Work on your own relationship with Jesus and make sure that He is pleased with you and you’re with Him until the very end, to have eternal life.
May Jesus bless you.
