Jesus commanded His disciples to: “make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you;”Matthew 28:19,20. However, we see few disciples in the world today.
The vast majority of professing Christians are not disciples. They are not followers of Jesus. They are followers of men, churches and church leaders. The world has been and is being deceived by churches, greedy wolves, to follow after them and not after Jesus. They are leading the masses to hell while enriching themselves and taking from the poor.
Jesus said:”“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give eternal life to them” John 10:27,28. Most professing Christians are not Jesus’ sheep, because they do not hear His voice and they do not follow Him. They will also not have eternal life, because they go to church and they follow the pastor, the priest and the church leadership. They belong to the church, not to Jesus.
You become a disciple of Jesus by accepting Him and obeying His commands, His words as they were also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Repent, stop sinning, be baptized in water for the forgiveness of your sin, then live your life in obedience to Jesus. If you obey Him, He will disclose Himself to you. He said:”He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.” John 14:21. Jesus will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and He promised that “the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things” John 14:26. Jesus said:”the Spirit of truth, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.”John 16:13.
If you seek Him and go after Him, Jesus Himself will guide you by His Holy Spirit. You don’t need a church and you must not follow after men. You must follow Jesus, to have eternal life. You have to become a disciples of Jesus.
The words of Jesus are plain and simple, a child can understand them. Read them in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Obey them and Jesus will disclose Himself to you. He will guide and teach you and give you eternal life IF you LISTEN to Him and FOLLOW Him until the end.
Are you one of the FEW that are following Jesus? Are you a disciple of Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.
