If you have faith in God and do what Jesus says you will find Him... "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jer 29:13
Jesus is helping us know the direction to go: John 7:17..."Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own."
The Apostle James follows up and says we must do what the word says: James 1:22-25..."Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do."
Faith is not just belief it is belief that causes one to act or to obey (James 2:26, Rom 1:5, Rom 16:16).
Also, the Grace of God, should cause people to honor God for His mercy. He didn't have to give us the chance of forgiveness of sin after all we've done. The Lord is Holy, he isn't a man with flaws. He didn't have to accept what we've done in our lives. We and everything in existence are His property, we've had no right to do what we wanted our way this is why judgement is coming. However, God loves us and has offered us Grace through faith in Jesus Christ so long as there is a time.
Furthermore, Grace is a teacher if you really understood it's weight and message. It tells us we don't deserve what Jesus did for us on the cross. Thus we should honor God with our lives: "For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good." Titus 2:11-14
If you trust in God (Nahum 1:7), and obey His Son (Luke 9:35). You will overcome every trial, tribulation and circumstance, even death itself (1 Cor 15:50-58).
You will be saved (Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38-47)...
As for me, I call to God,
and the Lord saves me.
17 Evening, morning and noon
I cry out in distress,
and he hears my voice.
18 He rescues me unharmed
from the battle waged against me,
even though many oppose me.
19 God, who is enthroned from of old,
who does not change—
he will hear them and humble them,
because they have no fear of God.
20 My companion attacks his friends;
he violates his covenant.
21 His talk is smooth as butter,
yet war is in his heart;
his words are more soothing than oil,
yet they are drawn swords.
22 Cast your cares on the Lord
and he will sustain you;
he will never let
the righteous be shaken.
23 But you, God, will bring down the wicked
into the pit of decay;
the bloodthirsty and deceitful
will not live out half their days.
But as for me, I trust in you.
Have a great day!
When rising from the bed of death,
Overwhelmed with guilt and fear,
I see my maker face to face,
O, how shall I appear!
If yet, while pardon may be found
And mercy may be sought,
My heart with inward terror shrinks,
and trebles at the thought,
When thou, O Lord, shall stand disclosed
In majesty severe,
And sit in judgment on my soul,
O, how shall I appear!
But there's forgiveness, Lord, with thee;
Thy nature is benign;
Thy pardoning mercy I implore,
For mercy, Lord, is thine.
Acts 2:38 Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
