IGLESIA NI CRISTO ( CHURCH OF CHRIST ) If we want to succeed in our journey to heaven, then we need to follow the right path that God has laid for us.In order to determine whether we are on the right spiritual direction, we need first to know where the good way is:
"Thus says the Lord: 'Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is,And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls"... (Jeremiah 6:16 ,New King James Version)
Upon finding where the good way is, we should make sure to walk in it, so as to find spiritual rest. Search for the right path is not at all hard since the Bible clearly reveals who the way is:
"Jesus said to him, " I' am the way, the truth,and life.No one comes to the Father except through Me'." (John 14:6 New King James Version)
Jesus is the way that leads to God in heaven. Through Him, we will be saved. But while many already know and accept this truth, it should be clear to us that it is not enough for one to merely believe to profess faith in Christ :
"So Jesus said to those who believed in Him, 'If you obey my teaching you are really my disciples'." (John 8:31, Today's English Version)
Even if one knows the right direction but refuses to tread or follow its course, he would never reach his destination Similarly, if one says that he accepts our Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior but refused to walk in Him by obeying His teachings, then lost in his quest for salvation.
An important teaching of Christ concerning salvation that we ought to obey is to enter the "Fold" through Jesus :
"I am the door; anyone who comes into the fold through me will be safe." (John 10:9, Revised English Bible)
The fold or flock according to Acts 20:28, is the Church of Christ(Iglesia ni Cristo) which Christ redeemed with His blood: "Take heed therefore to yourselves and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you overseers, to feed the church of Christ which he has purchased with his blood." (Acts 20:28,Lamsa Translation)
Once we have joined the Church of Christ( Iglesia ni Cristo), we should remain serving God faithfully until the end,so as not to go astray:
"But if you keep on being faithful right to the end, you will be saved." Matthew24:13 (Contemporary English Version)
Therefore, if we truly want to get to heaven and reach God's eternal home,we should not stop at merely believing or professing faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. We should take ht next important step, that is, to walk through him and be part of the true Church of Christ. Otherwise, we would end up lost and in trouble like those who knew which road to take but did not follow it.
WHERE ARE YOU HEADED FOR?
Like North & South Heaven & Hell are opposite destinations. It is impossible for anyone to get to Heaven through a way that leads to Hell.
MAKE SURE THAT ARE ON THE RIGHT PATH!
Now, you Know The Truth! Take Action Now! Judgment Day is Near!
