First piece in the series “Why Jesus Hates Religion” from my blog, thebleedingblogger.com
Are You a Religious Person?
I always cringe inside when people ask me if I’m religious.
I mean…wait…yes…in the sense that I’m a Christian, a Christ-follower. But no…”religious” really doesn’t describe it at all.
I have a dynamic, living, breathing relationship with the living God – with Jesus. I’ve been reborn – restored from the power of my sins – through the blood of Christ. Christ’s Holy Spirit – the fire of God – lives in me and equips me to love others and gradually become more like Christ.
But my walk is not (or at least shouldn’t be) about STRIVING to love or to change. It’s about SURRENDERING to the One who can and does change me over time. The Source of Love.
It’s about letting the current of the Holy Spirit chip away at the unpolished edges of the rocks, gradually making them smoother.
