Nobody will enter into the kingdom of heaven by just crossing the border, or by confessing that they believe in Jesus Christ. Salvation is not for free. There is only one door, one entrance into the kingdom of heaven, and that is Jesus Christ. You have to believe in Him and therefore follow and obey Him until the very end, in order to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus said:”Why do you call Me Lord, Lord, and you do not do what I say?” If Jesus Christ is not your Lord and if you do not serve Him as Lord then you have no place in His kingdom. The only way to enter the kingdom of heaven is to submit yourself to Jesus, to obey Him and follow Him, to serve Him as Lord and Master.
Just believing in Jesus Christ will not save you. If you believe in Jesus, then you have to obey Him. You have to obey His teachings, His commands, the words that He spoke, as they are recorded in the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. You have to deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow Jesus Christ every day, until the very end. You have to turn away from sin, stop sinning, be holy. You have to turn away from running after your own desires and your own ambitions, and you have to follow and obey Jesus Christ. If you obey His words, repent and be baptized, stop sinning, be holy, and you seek Jesus with all your heart, you will find Him. He will reveal Himself to you. He will become real to you, you will know Him for real. He will give His Holy Spirit to come and dwell in you, and with you. He will guide you and He will teach you, but you have to go after Him every day and live for Him, live for His kingdom until the very end. If you withdraw, Jesus will have no pleasure in you, you will not enter His kingdom. You have to endure and stay with Jesus until the very end, or else you will not enter Heaven.
There is no easy way to enter the kingdom of heaven. You have to serve the King, Lord and Master, Jesus Christ. You cannot buy your way in there. You cannot cheat your way in there. You cannot slip in through the back door. You have to follow Jesus Christ every day. If He does not know you the day that you die, He will say to you:”Go away I never knew you, you worker of iniquity.” It is only those who truly love Jesus and therefore follow and obey Him, who live their lives to please Him, that have the hope of entering the kingdom of heaven. Salvation is not free. Jesus paid the most severe price to redeem those who follow and obey Him, and those who enter Heaven will also pay a dear price. It will cost you. It will cost you everything to enter the kingdom of heaven. Deny yourself, pick up your cross and go after Jesus every day until the very end, or else you have no hope of salvation.
May Jesus bless you.
