God’s Word: Romans 2:17-29
God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)
There are many, many religions in the world, but religion isn’t what saves a person. Religion is an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods or it might be an interest, a belief, or an activity that is very important to a person or group of people. Being sincere in your beliefs may be honorable but there are many who are sincerely wrong. Eternal salvation may be your goal but if you get on the wrong train you will never reach that destination. All trains (religions) do not lead to the same place.
First Eve and Adam turned their backs on Me in hopes of making themselves gods. Their choice gave free rein to Satan to lead astray and delude humanity into scores of different paths to utopia as their own gods. But these paths all come to a dead-end! There is no utopia on this earth—but only in My heaven for those who follow their heart which leads down My path of salvation. I dwell with those who traverse My path. I provide for your every need and whatever lies in your path of life—I will truly satisfy your every longing.
Religion doesn’t give peace when the storms of life rage. Only a relationship with Me will be there for you when times are tough. Wherever you go, I will be with you. I will never leave you nor forsake you. To demonstrate the depth of My love for humanity, I came to earth and took on the flesh of Jesus Christ. I walked and talked with mankind—I demonstrated my love by willingly sacrificing My very life as atonement for the sins you continually commit. To come to know Jesus is to come to know Me. To reject Jesus is to reject Me. Your religion will fail you but I will never fail you. Come to Me for peace.
God’s Question: Do you want religion or a relationship with Me?
God’s Promise: I am the same yesterday, today and forever.
My Prayer to God:
I Praise You for Your loving concern for even me.
I am Sorry I don’t have such a concern for others.
Thank You for Your Word that gives me peace and joy.
Please Help Me by more concerned about others than myself.
