Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6
To many people church is just some building or boring religious institution they want no part of. Some people say they go to church in the woods and worship nature and creation. We are not sent to judge or condemn those who have no desire for Christ or to fight back when mocked or ridiculed. Basically we are to pray for those who are lost and wander, some of which may be within our own families. Many within the walls of the church don't really know Jesus. There is a saying "Going into church won't make you into a Christian anymore than going into a garage will make you into an automobile." Ponder that.
Many people may have been raised in the Christian faith but then they grew up and started being led astray by seducing and deceptive spirits and wrong 'voices'. Even the current craze over acceptance of Islam as a peaceful religion is scary. We are not to hate Muslims but their religion is not the religion of peace, love, joy, and Jesus Christ. We are to show the love of Jesus to everyone we encounter and pray even for strangers who may be around you who may not know Christ as their savior. But don't judge! Love and pray, period.
There is good and evil. Evil is Satan's domain of captivating people and making them believe lies. The truth is found in the word of God. Study it, not the morning news. Meditate upon it, not upon the morning show. If you feel far from God ask Him to relight that flame of passion for Him in your heart today.
PRAYER: Lord I want to be a Christian in my heart, in my heart. Those words were in a childhood song but they have such deep meaning. I love you Lord and don't want to be captivated by the lies of Satan. I choose to follow you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
