Relationship not religion

Jesus didn’t shed his blood 
So we can be self righteous and
 Religious. But to have a close intimate
Relationship with him.

So then who qualifies for Salvation?
A new start, complete forgiveness, and
To be set free.  Because of Jesus the 
Amazing answer is EVERYONE and that
Include me.

Going to church won’t make me a Christian
Neither having a bumper sticker or Jesus pin
That says I am saved. It’s my affiliation with 
Christ  at  work, in the grocery store, in traffic 
 and overall the Godly way I behave.
