While there are many religions practiced around the world, Christianity is different. Christianity is actually NOT a religion but our relationship with God and our relationships with other people. when Father God sent Jesus Christ his only Son to die on the cross for us, it was because he wanted us to have a personal relationship with Him. Jesus Christ is not only our Lord and Savior but our bridge to having a relationship with our Heavenly Father. for Jesus said, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6, NIV)
God wants you to rely on Him because He knows what is best for you. He wants you to involve Him in all aspects of your life so that He can guide you and help you. He wants you to always be authentic when you pray and speak to Him. No matter how you are feeling, you can speak to God about anything. If you are upset because things are not going well in your life, the Lord understands your anger and frustration. He knows exactly what you need even when you don’t. We may not always sense His presence but He is always there for you. for God said, Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5) just as God is faithful to us, he expects us to be faithful to Him. The one thing He does ask of us is to believe in his Son Jesus Christ – for he is the way. Jesus said, I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. (John 8:12, NIV)
People often don’t realize that the church Jesus Christ started on earth was the Christian church. He wanted to build a church based on a true community of believers where brothers and sisters-in-Christ supported one another and held each other accountable for their actions. No church body can claim to have such a foundation except Christianity. Believers know that the Bible is God’s Word and the truth. by following the teachings in the Bible and being a part of a Christian community, people can live the abundant life that Christ wanted us to live. No matter what problems you may be facing in your life right now, the answers are in God’s Word and faithful Christians are there to help you to succeed.
