RELIGION vs RELATIONSHIP
Henry Bullis shares how he became born again, and how the Lord worked in his life after that, in Part 1 of his testimony. The remainder of his testimony focuses in on the many crucial differences between RELIGION verses RELATIONSHIP.
Are you aware that God desires for each of us to have a personal, meaningful relationship with Him? A close, intimate, vibrant, real relationship with Him?
Henry discovered this over time. If you have tried RELIGION, and there was no excitement or joy for you in it, but rather just a bunch of DO THIS or DO NOT DO THAT'S, we encourage you to do yourself a HUGE favor and listen to this precious testimony. Religion will choke out a meaningful relationship with God. It will wear you out and eventually down. It will place a choke-hold around your spiritual neck and slowly squeeze until you die spiritually. Not only will it kill your true joy and love with and for God, you can pass it along to others so it can steal their love and joy for God as well.
Jesus Christ didn't have RELIGION with His 12 Apostles nor did they have RELIGION with Jesus. They had a close, intimate RELATIONSHIP with Him. So why would He want anything different for you and I?
Through the Holy Spirit, you and I can have every bit as much an intimate relationship with the Father and Jesus Christ as any other person ever has had, or will have. God desires that we hunger for it. Do you hunger for it more than anything else? If not, more than likely you will never experience it. But if you DO desire it, then do not wait until tomorrow to start asking and trusting God for it. We encourage you to start NOW!
Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. You can even have that assurance RIGHT NOW! Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
PLEASE HELP US HELP YOU SHARE THE BEST NEWS GOD HAS FOR EVERY PERSON BECAUSE...
JESUS DID IT! and...
Remember: All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for eternity, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for eternity. (Matthew 6:19-21 is our assurance)
