Jesus never came for religion, He came for relationship as that was what God created from the beginning. When we have that intimacy with Jesus in the relationship He calls us for having faith and doing everything through it is automatic. It does however take a complete shut down for Him alone to know how He thinks about any given area of life as the answers for life are all in Him. The only reason we get out of faith is because we get distracted by whatever else that is not faith in God for His promises. We encourage you to listen to this teaching by brother Todd Kohler who expands on this topic of faith and also shares a vision of being inside God’s box so big that all it had on it walls were His promises. Enjoy!
No “Wall Flowers” Here! Romans 5:8. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
The why behind our lives has to be crystal clear to us. God did not create us for us but for Him in us. He always intended for us to be one. But all our lives we grew up very self conscious by trying to build esteem, reputation, trying to build a circle of friends where we are accepted, trying to fit in and trying to BE SOMEBODY.
You will never grow a close relationship with God by just attending church once a week or even having a daily quiet time. Friendship with God is built by sharing all your life experiences with him.
