Word of the Day... October 11, 2012

26 If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. James 1:26

Christianity is not a religion.  In fact it is the opposite of religion.  Religion tells of man’s endeavor to reach God.  With religion you have finite man on earth trying to touch an infinite God in heaven.  That is simply impossible!  You can never start with a finite being and reach an infinite one.  Christianity is an infinite God reaching down to earth to touch man.  “For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son”. (John 3:16)

Religion tells us that man can reach God through works.  Christianity tells us man can never reach God through works.

One day people asked Jesus, “What shall we do that we may work the works of God?”  Jesus said, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent”. (John 6:28-29) Your work cannot bring you into a relationship with God.  A relationship with God comes solely from receiving God’s love and trusting in God’s provision for your sins.  I hope that all of you have a blessed day in the Lord Jesus!!!  God bless you!!!
