Religion says; I have to go read my Bible but Relationship says; I can’t wait to see what God is going to show me today!
Religion says; I have to go say my prayers but Relationship says; I get to go speak to the creator of the universe and hear His secrets woohoo!!
Religion says; I have to go to church today but Relationship says, I was glad when they said unto me let us go into the house of the Lord!! Glory to God!
I am so thankful that when I truly gave my life to the Lord that I didn’t get religion I got a relationship with my heavenly Daddy!! I truly feel for those who only have religion,it is like a duty when you have religion and no one can keep up with it!
Today, let’s let our children see our relationship with the Lord and not our religion. We will never win them any other way. Sometimes we try to make them do what only having a real relationship with Christ will do.
The word says that It is the goodness of God that brings us to repentance. He desires to love on you and your children today. His desire is to have fellowship with you. He died so that you could go beyond religion and into a beautiful fulfilling relationship with Him!! Oh what a Savior! Just something to think about today!
