What is one thing that you do religiously?
There is something or some things that you do daily…for whose benefit?
Maybe you don’t know that answer, but I bet you know these:
-What activity or activities were you denied that irritated you the most?
That activity could be your religion
-What line of thought created by the covid quarantine really contradicted the way you think?
Your way of thinking could be your religion
How come it is important to evaluate if you have a habitual religion?
Because as Christians we are not in a religion; we are a people who want an intimate relationship with Jesus.
In a nutshell, is it possible we put more faith in what we do, what we don’t do, what we believe or don’t believe rather than have an intimate faith in Jesus?
3 ways to evaluate if your life is about making a religion for yourself or a relationship with Jesus
