Bondage

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free and do not be entangled with a yoke of bondage." Galatians 5:1. I must get something out up front, I am not anti-church. I believe in church, if I didn't then I would not be a Christ follower. What I don't agree with is all the different religions. So I guess you could say that I am anti-religion. Because Jesus had his apostles, preachers, teachers and all the saints to travel throughout the land planting churches and spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and God the Father. But no where does it say that they taught different messages. The message was one and the same, how to have salvation and how Christ followers are suppose to live. I just want to be with believers who believe in the Bible and want to do exactly what God wants us to do. Not to have church as some check off list. I want to know what God wants of me, what mission has he placed before me. I want to go where Jesus went. I want to love like Jesus did. I know that sounds hard in a crazy world, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." Romans 12:1-2. God gave us the tools and gave us the Holy Spirit to show us how to use the tools. We are to seek God's wisdom like it is the last thing on earth. We have to break the bondage of old ways because if they were having trouble in Jesus' days and after, what do you think we are doing today? Jesus condemn the religious rulers of his day- "Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples saying: The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works for they they say and do not do." Matthew 23:1-2. I urge you to go and read Matthew 23. Guys we are to follow Jesus. We have to open our Bibles and follow Jesus. Sometimes we will get hurt but the word of God will go out and will not return void. We have to be living sacrifices to the world or the world will not know him. We as Christians need to come together and be one with Jesus. So no, I am not anti-church, I am anti-religion. I AM A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST! "But then indeed, when you did not know God, you served those which by nature are not gods. But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements to which you desire again to be in bondage?" Galatians 4:8-9. We are free from the world, but we are in bondage to Christ. I am no longer conformed to what the world says I have to be but rather to who Christ Jesus says I am. Have a blessed day! RISE UP!
