A religion or Christianity which one

As I have pondered over my religious background I have found it necessary to take a pause. I need to examine just what is religiousness. I have been a faithful follower of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for most of my 50 years of life.

I have seen many people in churches across this land that come every Sunday morning spruced up and looking in their prime. But only to forget about God all too soon after leaving the doors of the building they just worshiped in.

I believe we need to start showing the Christ in us as we leave those doors each Sunday. We go to eat somewhere and the servers or people around never know we just came from a church service. I have a tattoo on my right arm, three nails, representing the nails driven into the hands and feet of my Jesus. It is amazing the conversation starter this has been! Just the other day in a pizza place one of the workers saw it under my work uniform and asked what it is, so I showed her and simply explained," that is what went through the hands and feet of my Jesus."

Being religious is man's way of how he perceives God. A man may "worship" God by laying in his recliner drinking coffee and swearing at the officials bad call from a ball game. It may well be by taking his family to church and scurrying out to get to the closest diner for lunch.

Christianity though is a life style, a life given to God for what Jesus has done for us by His atoning blood sacrifice on the cross of calvary.

He has commissioned us to go out and compel them to come in that His house may be full. He has given us instruction as to how we are to act. He has let us know that we may well be the only bible people ever read.

But still we act as though it only matters when the church doors are opened. My friends it's getting late, time is running away from us. It is truly time to stand for Jesus and proclaim the saving grace of God. Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace through faith are you saved it is not of yourselves it is a gift of God not of works lest any man should boast. Grace is unmerited favor, only the unmerited favor a loving God can give. He loved us so much He gave His only son to die for us. Thank you , my Jesus.

Even though I can't recite scriptures from the Bible like many do, I let people know everyday how HE has affected my life.
