Are you 'religious' or do you love Jesus? Do you like to read your Bible and go to conferences and things that help you grow in Christ? Do you feel people who get serious about God are a little freaky? Do you feel Sunday church is enough to get by on and do not even open your Bible the rest of the week? Are you ashamed to pray in public?
Sad to say but many people seem to have a 'Sunday only' form of Christianity. Go to church, check the block, remember the Sabbath Day, then back to their 'real' life on Monday. Jesus wants you to have an abundant and full life with him seven days a week. He does not want you to forget about him Monday through Saturday and just because it is the thing to do, get up grudgingly and out of habit and go to church. Being a Christian is much more than an obligation or duty.
Do you really truly love God with all your heart? Is he first place in your life? Do you search the scriptures to find answers to life's problems or do you go along with the way of me world? He is waiting for you to ask Him into your heart and be totally sold out to Him. It is exciting when you love Jesus that much.
When you ask Christ to be Lord of your life you are transformed and all things should become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says "Therefore if anyone is in Christ he is new creature. The old things are gone and behold all things are new."You can ask Jesus into your heart right now. If you need to find a church that is on fire for the Lord, do not be caught in the denominational trap of "that is where I go because that is the way it has always been." Perhaps it is time to move on in life and go somewhere where people are excited about Jesus and not afraid to praise Him.
Romans 12:2 reminds us " Do not be conformed anymore to the pattern of this work but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what the will of God is. His good , pleasing and perfect will." Are you transformed for Jesus and get excited when Sunday rolls around or is it just another day?
PRAYER: Father I love you and want to get to know you better. I purpose in my heart to make each day your day and to get up and read your word to help transform me into your likeness. Give me courage if I need to find a new church home to grow in Christ if that is what is needed. In Jesus name. Amen.
