And Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. John 12:23
There are many people and groups who identify themselves as Christians, yet they refuse to worship Jesus Christ. They have no problem accepting his atoning blood on the cross for their sins, but when it comes to glorifying and worshiping him, they refuse. Let me tell you, if you refuse to worship Christ you are not a Christian, therefor your not saved or born again
The Greeks have come to Jerusalem to meet Jesus, they came to worship him. Jesus didn’t deny them instead he said “The hour has come to glorify the Son of Man (Christ)” Jesus was prophesying about his own crucifixion , which would be the atoning sacrifice for our sins
“He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. John 12:25
But it will cost you a price, you must lose your old life to gain your new eternal life. You must repent and give up your sins, you must give up your love for this world, and become a new creation. You cant be Born Again if your still living in the same old sin. Your life was bought with the blood of Jesus Christ
If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him. John 12:26
If you want to get to God the Father, you must go through God the Son. Often people try to bypass the Son and go straight to the Father, you are not worthy to stand before the Father. Only by the blood of Jesus Christ, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit, can you stand in the presence of the Father
Jesus said Nobody comes to the Father except through Me (Christ) The hour has come, worship in Jesus name Amen!
