Religion or Religious

 

AFCRadioShawn-160-241-03112013Good Day and God Bless Disciples and Ambassadors for Christ Jesus.

Are we truly practicing religion the way God has shown us or are we just being “religious” in our ways?

When we truly follow God, He will put into our hearts the one and true way to praise and worship Him. It will be His Holy Spirit, given to us from our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ that will guide us in true religion. When we are just being “religious” we may be just doing what we have seen others do or repeating things we have been told to remember and repeat.

As children, we are taught to remember certain Scriptures, songs, and prayers to help get us started on the right path. As adults, we are to leave our childish ways and become men and women of God; we need to find our own path, our new path. It was good for us to learn those verses, hymns, and prayers but it is now time for us to open our eyes and hearts to God’s religion and what He truly wants for our lives.

1 Corinthians 13:11-12, “When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.”

God knows us completely. Jesus knows everything there is to know about us. It is on us to find ourselves within the Body of Christ. Let us find out what it is God has planned for us and not just follow the norm. Let us get down on our knees and pray to Our LORD and Savior and ask Him about His religion, His perfect and pure ways to glorify Him; then listen for the answer.

James 1:27, “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”

We all have a calling upon our lives and one of the most important statements in James 1:27 is for us “to keep oneself unstained from the world,” as we continue to do whatever it is that God has planned for our lives.

Jesus Loves YOU!
Amen
