1- Have Jesus as ONE Lord and salvation (2Timothy 2:5) so many people believe in Jesus *and* in lots things! They think “ if it doesn’t be good, bad won't”! how deceived they are. If we believe in Jesus and in another thing, we can be all things except Christian because real believers never accept anything that is showed as good as Jesus!
2- Have a transformed life. People around us need to see in our acts that we are new creatures! No more lie, no more be angry about all and with all. No more believe today and give up tomorrow. AS real Christians, we have to be firm in one way and keep growing in Him. We need to have a transformed character! In these days some friend said me:” I have a friend, he is a good guy, and a believer that goes to church since was a teenager *But* he is a liar!” Yes! You can image my face. I answered: “ok, he until can be a good guy, goes to the church and whatever *but* he is not a Christian! NO because is unacceptable a Christian be liar if bible says that “devil is the lie’s father (John 8:44)” and a Christian MEANS a son of God that never can lie (Titus 1:2)! Lots people think that go to the church, sing gospel songs and talk about bible can make someone a Christian and go to heaven! Oh, such lie it is. Be Christian mean live what bible says, means give up sin, bad things at TV, bad desires, thought and talks and it is a constant in our lives.
A – A hard heart – is someone who LISTEN the word but always think that things are not like that! They hear but don’t allows the Word from God go to their hearts and to produce the very resulted
B – A emotional heart – yes, is someone who be emotional when hear the Word, agree with it, but when go out, come back to do all the same as before. People that are moved by circumstances and their hearts. Remember what says Jeremiah in Jeremiah 17:9 - heart is deceitful. I we know people that live by heart!
Someone like that, is indifferent and is able to hear and never feel or see the truth. Like here when Philip said to Jesus show them God when Jesus had said: who see me, see God! John14:6-10
C – And divided heart - is some who likes the word of God BUT like all that is secularly too. People like that accept the Word like all that everybody says like been the same thing.
D- Do not accept correction. Hebrew 12:5-10 – I KNOW how hard is get a correction and I know that lots people that says be Christian thinks be right all the time and never accept when correct them. We need to remember that God correct Your sons! Do not accept a correction can take you away from Him ways! Think about.
These things just do with you never become a real Christian and never feel what really means: I came to give you abundantly life - John 10:10. They until go to church but can't feel the real love from God, for this, many people give up your faith! We need give up these things above, that do us far from Jesus
lots of love in Him
