Defined by the Naysayers

Recently a preacher on TBN said, it’s not about religion it’s about relationship with Jesus Christ.

What an excellent definition of religion. My religion is my relationship with Jesus Christ.

And yes it comes with rules such as the Ten Commandments found in Exodus 20. It is full of rules and regulations and love. Love to teach me those rules and regulations. Love to die for me and love to help me live.

For once the naysayers have it right. Build a relationship with Jesus by keeping the Father’s will.

To know the Father’s will read, study, and live it out by the example of the Holy Bible. A.K.A the Word, A.K.A Jesus Christ!

3 Points

Three points to ponder.

  1. If the USA was truly a Christian nation we’d still be British.
  2. Don’t try to teach Greek without mastering the English Bible first.
  3. You can’t leave your schoolmaster (the law) behind without graduation.

A Morning Moment

I often forget to acknowledge the Lord in the morning. I typically read the Bible and pray before going to sleep.

It occurred to me, the Lord’s Prayer is intended to be prayed in the morning. Matthew 6:9-13. Here’s why:

Matthew 6:11 KJV
Give us this day our daily bread.

It doesn’t make much sense to pray for our daily bread before we go to sleep and the day is over unless we are praying for the next day.

After several years of praying the Lord’s Prayer, I can’t believe I only noticed it now. We should think when we pray, not just recite.
