Christianity – Gods way or your way?
Why is it that so many good, church-going people in our current time experience a sense of disappointment and failure that borders on despair? They have faithfully attended church throughout their entire lives and honestly feel that they truly love God in their own way. Despite this, they suffer from spiritual malnutrition. There is something important lacking in their spiritual experience.
The answer may lay precisely in the fact that they love God ‘in their own way’, instead of the scriptural way. They have created a form of Christianity that fits neatly into their lifestyle.
This private and personal version of Christianity turns them into masters of compromise. They find excuses not to forgive, they are selective in who they want to love, their business negotiations are controlled by whatever suits them at that moment and not by scriptural principles.
Scriptural Christianity starts with an act of repentance and confession. This implies a complete about-turn and an awareness of the presence of the living Christ. Scriptural Christianity means complete obedience to God and to the standards set out by Christ. These standards are found in the New Testament, and our Lord and Master commands us to keep them.
Have a wonderful day
Be blessed in Him
