Have you received Jesus…? If you have – then are you living as the person He says you are through Him…?
Do you live as close to Jesus as you can get…? Or do you just believe He exists – but that you don’t want Him to butt into your life beyond that…. Well, unless he YELLS into your ear what to do – or unless you need him to help you with something specific.
A living faith makes life exciting. A living faith is ready to give up EVERYTHING for Jesus. A living faith is also obedience. DO and BE what He says in his word!!
Do you think the commandments listed in the New Testament are obsolete…? That they don’t pertain to you? That you are not worthy? That the power of the Holy Spirit is dead? That it was just a culture? Well… then all you can do is to try to DO those things, because assuming without trying is a losing game.
Remember that a belief in Jesus without obedience is worth NOTHING. Think about it… Satan believes in God to, but he chose to be disobedient. What about you…? Are you obedient, disobedient or indifferent…? Can people see a difference in your life (maybe aside from attending church) compared to the life of someone who is not a Christian? Because you should be able to tell… and not just on Sunday, but EVERY SINGLE DAY. Jesus is a life choice – not a Sunday choice.
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
