KEY SCRIPTURE; Rom 8:29 KJV “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.”
Religion is unfortunately the greatest confusion of human practice. Religion involves spiritually dead men and woman, who are struggling to be upright and also to catch the eye of God’s approval. Religion breeds self righteous men and women, who see people of the other side, evil, unfit and must be destroyed. Religion has created enemies among men.
Our Lord Jesus did not come to create another religious organization. He came to impart His life into as many who would accept Him, so they would be like Him. John 1:12 KJV” But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” Please note the bible did not talk about followers, but they who accepted Him, became sons of God, like Himself. Our key scripture also states that, those, He did foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His first son. Jesus became the first born among many brethren. We are one with Him.
We are not spiritually dead, but have received eternal life just as He has. We are partakers of His grace and the gift of righteousness, and so we are free from any kind of self righteousness. We do not judge and condemn any body, yet in love we show all those who have not accepted the Lord, the great love He has demonstrated to save them. We do not fight those who hold divergent views. We do not kill anybody in order to be honoured before our father. He, Jesus said, greater love has no man than, this that a man should lay his life for his friends. In the Jesus family we love all men.
Dear one, are you practicing Christian religion? In Christian religion people of different opinions are seen as enemies. Christian religion creates self righteous men and women, who condemn and judge others. These people struggle to be righteous, because they are sinners who are seeking to be righteous. This is most unfortunate. Christians are not sinners. They are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, 2nd Corinth 5:21. God has given birth to us, and so we are one with Jesus.
Dearly beloved stop practicing religion and receive life, the very life of God, so you would become one with Jesus.
Thank you, heavenly Father, for giving Jesus to die for me. I surrender my life to Him. I accept to be part of the Jesus Family.
THOUGHT: JESUS BRINGS LOVE, RELIGION BRINGS HATRED
Matt 5:44 KJV” But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”
Heb 2:11 KJV” For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,”
