According to John, Jesus has the authority to both give life to whomever He pleases and to judge the living and the dead. What does it mean to truly live the life given by Christ? Is it possible to have eternal life and yet live a life of unrepentant sin? I fear many people have received a false sense of security by holding onto a moment in which they prayed a prayer asking Jesus into their hearts, but after which have lived a life where there is no indication of transformation. What does the Scripture say about this? Can you be a disciple of Jesus if you aren’t actually being discipled by Him? Can you say that you are a follower of Jesus if you aren’t actually following Him?
This was a difficult message to preach and I’m certain a tough one to hear, but I think it was an important one. I pray God’s Spirit will be your guide if you decide to watch. Blessings!
