It is not enough to profess faith in Jesus Christ. We must obey Him.
Our obedience does not consist in going to church and engaging in the rituals of religion. Rather, it consists in obeying the commandments of God which are that we should love one another.
You do not need the church, but you do need the kingdom. Church is visible, tangible, and outward. The kingdom is invisible, intangible, and inward. The kingdom is a way of life whereby you think every thought and perform every action to please Jesus Christ.
As you seek to please Jesus you will begin to sense His approval in your soul. This approval is more important than the approval of any human being.
As you grow in your obedience, so you will grow in your joy and peace.
This is the gospel of the kingdom. There is no gospel of church.
