Relationship or Religion

It is often debated in this world what the difference is between religion and a relationship with God.

By the standards of a dictionary, religion is : The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, esp. a personal God or gods.

Let’s see what the definition of relationship is:

  • The way in which two or more concepts, objects, or people are connected, or the state of being connected.
  • The state of being connected by blood or marriage.

I personally love the definition of relationship. The biggest keyword is “connected” and furthermore, “blood” is an even bigger keyword. I strive to have a relationship with my Savior and don’t really identify with a particular religion except to say that I am a Christ-believer.

My relationship with God is a superhuman connection by the blood of Jesus Christ. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

Religion can be very different than having a Relationship with God through Jesus Christ. God’s plan is not based on people’s efforts and good works, but is based on His amazing Love and amazing Grace for us. Once you experience and learn how to LOVE like Him, your relationship with the Lord will be strengthened, but moreover, your heart will be so full. I am so extremely blessed to have experienced this myself and since, I have never experienced life more abundantly, more passionately, and more purposefully. Take the leap of FAITH and remember, HE loves YOU and wants to hear from you every moment of every day.

Be blessed,

Dee

“I (Jesus) am the way, the truth, and the life. No one may come to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6

“For by grace are you saved, through faith; and this not of your own, it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.” – Ephesians 2:8-9

    I have recently went back to prayer and its funny how things change in your life for the positive from the power or prayer. I’m nothing like a saint as all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of god.

    I enjoyed reading this post.

    Take care
