Make sure you’re following the real Jesus.

Make sure you’re following the real Jesus, instead of wishful thinking or a demon pretending to be Jesus. How do you tell the difference? By comparing what “your” Jesus says with what you read Jesus saying in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Many people are unknowingly following a “false Jesus” who encourages you to do whatever you want without consequence. We were warned about this false Christ by Jesus himself who said that in the last days there would be those who are pretending to be Him: “For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many” (Matthew 24:5, Mark 13:3-6, Luke 21:8).

Here’s a video on how to recognize and avoid the false Jesus:

If you’re following the real Jesus and have been saved, then you have the Holy Spirit dwelling within you. And when that happens, you’ll feel the Holy Spirit steering you in a godly direction. The devil says there are no absolute rights or wrongs. The Bible teaches us that God’s moral laws are written on our hearts (Romans 2:15).

If you say that Jesus is your Lord and Savior, that means totally surrendering your life to him. Jesus said, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word” (John 14:23), “If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love” (John 15:10), and “You are my friends if you do what I command you” (John 15:14).

Following Jesus is not an easy path. Following Jesus requires obedience and spiritual disciplines, and choosing to love God and others. But the rewards of our eternal afterlife with Jesus, and the peace and strength he gives us in this life, are worth it.
