If you are a christian you follow and know Christ. It is a decision you maade.
A decision knowing that even though we are saved by His grace, we show our love for Jesus by obeing His commends. That is what it means to be born again, we are thankful and we want to show our love by obeying Him.
How do you know that you are saved?
Is it because you received Jesus into your heart?
NO! its not enough
There are 2 things you have to do
. Repent for our sins
. Believe that Jesus (God the son) died for our sins and was raised from the dead
“For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved” (Romans 10:9-11)
Now i ask, how do you know you believe? Well, because you obey His commands (the result of believing- Holy spirit)
Christianity is not about inviting God into your life, but accepting the free gift of salvation and deciding you want to be part of Gods kingdom.
Meaning you do not ask God to give you what you think is good for the life you want, but sacrifice everything that feeds your ego and do life as a worrior for the kingdom
Being a Christian is not easy, but it is the best decision
If you are not willing to love and obey Him because He gave His life for you, so you could have eternal life. Than nothing will be good enough, no other reason would be good enough
Don’t get me wrong all His promises stand!
Oh, yes they do!
Ask your self am i a chiristian seeking health, wealth and to see my wants be done? Do i serve safety, money, ego, people, career? Or the one who died for me?
Guess what? you wont find joy and fullfilment by serving yourself but you will when you serve God!
