Many Christian believers are fast asleep. They believe lies, the doctrines of men. They have been lulled asleep by lying preachers. They go back to church every Sunday to be tranquilized into fruitlessness by their pastors. They are not bearing fruit for the kingdom of heaven because they are not witnessing for Jesus. They are useless for the kingdom of God.
Salvation is about following Jesus, day by day, being led by the Holy Spirit, doing the will of God. It is not about going to church and having fellowship with other believers. It is not about taking others to church. It is about taking them to Jesus, making disciples of Jesus, encouraging them to endure with Jesus until the end..
The gospel of Jesus Christ, His words, as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, is about, turning from sin, turning from our own ways, repenting and following Jesus EVERY DAY, being in close relationship with Him. We can only witness for Jesus if we know Him, through our relationship with Him. We can only bear fruit for the kingdom of God and bring glory to Jesus if we stay with Him.
The whole world is paranoid about education, studies and qualifications. Christians are paranoid about Bible study, but they are not concerned about knowing and following Jesus, about having and being led by the Holy Spirit.
Jesus gives the Holy Spirit in those who obey Him, repent, are baptized in water and who seek Him with all their heart. The Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth, will teach us all things.
A tree is known by it’s fruit. If we are not fruitful witnesses of Jesus and for Jesus, then we are not of Him. If we do not obey His words, live holiness and righteousness, sin no more, then we are not grafted into the True Vine, Jesus Christ.
Those who are led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God. If we do not have the Spirit of Christ, we do not belong to Him. If we are led by the Holy Spirit, we will be Light, not darkness, we will be saints, not sinners.
Can the world see that we are different? Can the world see Jesus in us? If not, we are only fooling ourselves.
May Jesus bless you.
