Relationship not Religion

My people perish because of the lack of knowledge - Hosa 4:6

Salvation isn't about religion; it has nothing to do with religion. 
Jesus didn't sacrifice Himself so we can sit back and have religion.
Jesus desires to have a relationship with His people.
That's what love is all about, not religion, but relationship and sacrifice.

Morality has nothing to do with religion.

It's still wrong to kill (and self-defense is different from vengeance), it's still wrong to cheat, and it's still wrong to lie. This has nothing to do with being religious. It's about truth and righteous judgment.

You say, "brother do you think your perfect?"  I say no, for I am a sinner saved by grace bought by the blood of Jesus Christ, just as you.  For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God- Romans 3:23

Understand this though, that there are still consequences for our actions.

I like John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

However, there is more to the Bible than just John 3:16.

Ephesians 2:9 states, we are not saved by works, lest any man should

However, Paul goes on to say in Romans 3:31 , "does that mean we do away with the law? By all means no, instead, we establish the law." 

The law isn't about Jewish customs such as circumcision, or not eating swine. Paul isn't referring to religious customs, he is referring to the law of Morality, God's law, such as the  10 commandments.

I don't write this to judge nor condemn anyone, I want to let you know that Jesus loves you. If we desire wisdom or revelation from God, we must have a relationship with God. 

Someone might be reading this you might have received Jesus Christ, that is great that is wonderful, congratulations, you have been born again, and your name is written in the Lambs' Book of Life, but there is so much more that God has for you.

"Rather, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.”  - 1 Corinthians 2:10

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord, and Savior, "Today is the day of Salvation" - 2 Corinthians 6:2. 

Harden not your heart today, Jesus loves you!
