Jesus Is Not A Religion (Religion vs. Jesus)

Religion says: You have to become acceptable to God before you can come to Him.

Jesus says: I paid the price to make you acceptable to the Father.  Come as you are and my righteousness will become yours.

Religion says: Obedience is about following a list of rules.

Jesus says: Intimate relationship with Me is the goal behind the rules.  Intimacy breeds obedience.

Religion says: If you’re struggling, you can’t approach God.

Jesus says: Bring your struggle before Me.  Allow Me to encounter and fill you in the place of your weakness.

Religion says: Your confidence before God is produced by your own righteous works.

Jesus says: Your confidence before God comes from the finished work of the cross.  I paid for you to confidently approach the throne of Grace.

Know someone who'd appreciate this?
