“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered;blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin.” Romans 4:7-8
The Bible: the greatest love letter ever written. We are simply amazed by the love that brought God’s only Son to come willingly, accepting torment and humiliation, just for the sake of us. As Paul says in the scripture above, we are truly blessed!
It is this point of view that inspired us to share the message, “It’s Not a Religion, It’s a Relationship”. The “religion” is the hypocrisy of the Pharisees that Jesus condemned in Matthew 23:4: “They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger.” In contrast, Jesus said “For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matt 11:30).
We were created to love our Lord with all of our heart, soul and mind, not merely to fulfill a list of deeds. Certainly we are also called to obey God’s commandments, but doing that alone misses the heart of the matter. If we keep our focus on the greatest commandment of loving God and loving others, everything else will fall in place! We know sometimes it’s easy to forget this simple truth, and believe that “It’s Not a Religion, It’s a Relationship” is a great reminder!
