God's Sword of Truth - The Word
"My religion" is a false belief which is built upon "my ways". It’s where you know Jesus, believe in Jesus, even cry for Him and are looking for Him, but these emotions are all physical and are not on solid ground. By believing on the true Jesus, by His Word, thru the Holy Spirit, I must deny all physical involvement.
By this I mean that you cannot say with your mouth that you believe and still have your actions show pride, emotion and flesh. Too many people want to live for Christ but do not know how, spiritually. In truth, there must be no connection with the word “I”, “Me” and “Myself”.
There are alot of people who want to be Christian, but, “their way”. They would love to live for Christ, but do not know how. When you live for Christ you have no rights, you give them all up. You look at yourself as being the least and less of all. You are the servant and the foot washer. You now live totally to please all. This may be impossible at times, but your efforts must show in trying to complete this mission.
If people are of the flesh in the world you can only be an example to them. Your fruits must show, whether they love you or hate you, and never turn them away. And, as once said before, you never meet a person you don’t love (for Christ’s sake). Christianity is a great responsibility in serving the Lord by the Spirit. You are responsible for all your fruits, not only to Christ, but the world you serve (such as: Do unto others). Your religion is like the written scripture, it cannot be: “Do as I need, or as I want”.
Christianity is what you give to Christ freely, as to all men. As Jesus tells us, by the Spirit, this is not an easy thing: "...and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God." - Acts 14:22. Bottomline.....if you have it, don’t ever lose it by giving in to Satan or his way, otherwise you have lost it all.
