Day 4: Your views on Religion

Well, I don’t know if you would even call me “religious.” When I think of religion I think of stuff like a set of rules and regulations. Christianity isn’t like that. Christianity isn’t “follow these rules and you’ll achieve this.” It’s a relationship with Jesus. Christianity is a devotion to the one and only savior. He died for ME. If¬† I was the only person in the world, he still would have endured all that just so I could be with him one day. Which is why I almost always have a crucifix on. To remember what he did for me.

I don’t obey him to get to heaven or get a reward or just to feel safe and have something to blame my troubles on or to fall back on. I obey him because I love him, because he loved me enough to go through that just to be with me. Like I said, it’s a relationship. How could I not love someone who loves me that much, and gives me countless chances I don’t deserve? Honestly, if we got what we deserved we would be in hell already. Forever. But he doesn’t want that. He gives us a million chances every day to avoid that. He wants us with him, but it’s still our decision. People don’t seem to understand that.

God created each and every one of us for a reason. Because he loves us and simply wants to spend eternity with us. Our job as Christians is basically, to spread that message. That he loves us, and will give us as many chances as we possibly need to have the eternal relationship with him that we were supposed to have, before we screwed it up. In order to do this we have to be an example of him and his love. Love unconditionally and spread the word.

He’s always there for me. He’ll never give me more than I can handle and is always there to back me up. He’s the only one in the universe I can go to with absolutely anything at anytime. Not that he doesn’t already know and have it under control anyway. Our God is truly an awesome God and I want everyone to experience this relationship. The only relationship that can truly withstand anything, which it does every day.

It’s not a religion. It’s a relationship.
