I have talked about this before. I am not a fan of organized religion. With so much divisions in the Church, how organized can it really be. Religion divides people. We saw it during the Crusades and we see it today in our world.
This world does not need a religious identity. It needs a Jesus Identity. When it comes down to it, it don’t matter what theological differences or beliefs that we have. All that matters is salvation through Jesus Christ.
Jesus said that no man could come to the Father unless they went through him. When we become Christians, we get a new identity through Jesus. I call it the Jesus identity.
Jesus went through so much in his 33 years. He was persecuted, spit upon, betrayed by one of his disciples. During those times, you could get crucified for your beliefs. He went through temptation. He still did his Father’s will.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17
You can get lost in religion and you can be found in Christ. Keep Jesus number one for he will never let you down. Religion divides people and lets them down.
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. Collossians 2:9-10 NIV
Religion divided us and Christ brought us back to the fullness we were supposed to have with God. Hold on to your Jesus Identity for it will never let you down.
