Unless your personal standards of morality exceed that of evangelical Christians, your relationship with God will not be what Jesus desires – what He called the kingdom of God.
Evangelical Christians are the religious community most dedicated to the truth of the Bible. However, they only adhere to it in superficial ways. They build churches and draw crowds in the name of the Lord, but these are not activities that the Lord commanded. Rather, His commandments are that we love God and each other. True disciples of Jesus Christ participate in society and are light and salt to it. They don’t try to create separate societies, societies of the washed.
What about you – how strong is your relationship with God? Do you keep His commandments? If you want greater intimacy with God, keep His commandments. That is, love Him with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. And love your neighbor as yourself.
If you go to church, you will learn how to go to church. If you want to know how to obey God’s commandments, start right where you are. Love. Be forgiving to everyone in your life. Do not let small hurts accumulate and you will find it easier to forgive larger sins.
The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus to those who want to hear about Him without having to join something.
