A Lost God
The Christian churches are repeating the history of the Jewish nation. Their Christian culture and distinctive denominations have become a substitute for God living "in and through them" every day. They are like an infant satisfied with its pacifier, instead of the real thing. Their "system of religion" is displacing God in their daily lives. Is that you?
They have not found a daily walk with God amidst His truths, just as the Jews did not recognize the Messiah as He walked amongst them. They have become cloistered in their distinctiveness’s. Can this be said of you?
The true purpose of religion is to free you–to take you from the life of bondage and servitude to your fallen nature, to a life of liberty and freedom in and through Jesus Christ. But when your religion ceases to free you and only returns converts to itself, rather than to God, you may need freedom from that religion. Luke 4:18
I’m hungry for God! He is the air I breathe! He is my daily bread. I want to follow Him and Him only. For I am lost without Him. I am desperate without Him. I want to live my life for Him. He is the only One that can empower me from a man-managed life to a God-governed experience. Our power comes only from God and not religion.
A church’s distinctiveness should never displace a true God-centeredness of primitive godliness. Because at the heart of the Christian message is God Himself, waiting for His redeemed children to live in conscious awareness of His presence.
The point of the Christian faith is not to be a good church member ... it is to be a transform Child of God. A new creature in every respect. “For in Him we live and move and have our being.” Acts 17: 28 “You are complete in Him.” Col 2:10
The Columbine is my absolute favorite flower! God would have us shine as glorious and brilliant in our Life as a Columbine does in this mountainside where I go weekly to walk and talk with my God!
