God is not a God of confusion, but the world and many Christians are confused because they reject Him. Jesus is the WAY, the LIFE and the TRUTH. He is the Light of the world. Those who follow Him will not be in darkness, but few follow Him.
Even most of those who profess to be Christians and followers of Jesus, do not know Jesus, and therefor they cannot possibly follow Him. They follow ideologies and teachings, many of them from the Bible, but that does not mean that they are following Jesus.
God is SPIRIT and the only way that we can follow Him is if we are connected to and led by Him in our spirit. Jesus is Lord. He is the LIFE GIVING SPIRIT. You can only come into SPIRITUAL COMMUNION with God, if you are BORN AGAIN of the Spirit of God. Jesus said:” Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6“That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” John 3:5,6.
Most Christians are not born again. They have not received the Holy Spirit and most of those who have been born again do not follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. You can only follow Jesus and have eternal life if you FOLLOW and OBEY Him, His Spirit. “For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” Romans 8:14.
Jesus came to save the world, to call sinners to repentance and communion with Him. He gives His Holy Spirit in those who receive Him, obey His commandments and seek to follow Him. They become His sheep, who HEAR His voice and follow Him, and He gives them eternal life, if they follow Him until the end of their lives. “27“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give eternal life to them,” John 10:27,28.
Jesus GUIDES His sheep by His Spirit, the Holy Spirit. He guides them UNTO eternal life. He baptizes them in the Holy Spirit and they ABIDE in Him, they keep following Him. They LISTEN to His VOICE, OBEY and FOLLOW Him. Those who are not born again cannot SEE the kingdom of God, cannot HEAR His VOICE and cannot FOLLOW Him.
Without Jesus we can do nothing. Without His guidance we cannot know and do His will, nor follow Him to have eternal life. DO YOU WANT TO FOLLOW JESUS AND HAVE ETERNAL LIFE?
Receive Him into your life. Accept Him, His words, His commandments as they were also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Repent of sin. Stop sinning. Be baptized in water as Jesus commanded. Live holy. Seek Jesus in prayer. Ask Him to fill you with the Holy Spirit. Jesus will speak to you in your spirit and you will understand His will. Trust and obey Him. He will guide you in all things.
The answers and the guidance that you seek are not in the Bible or anywhere else. Jesus Himself is the answer. He is the way, the truth and the life. He will guide you every step of the way. We will teach and guide you, if you go after Him and follow Him, until the end. Keep praying, keep seeking, and you will find Him. He will guide you unto life for your whole life.
May Jesus bless you.
