Everyone has faith in something or someone, but the critical question is, “Who or what is your faith in?” In my life, I have discovered that there are two opposing viewpoints on this topic. Some people like to feel “religious,” and others cherish their “personal relationship” with Jesus Christ. How about you? Have you grown up practicing “Religion?” Or do you have “A Relationship” with God? Here is the difference. Unfortunately, for many, religion follows a set of man-made rules.  It is an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and practices used to worship their created “God.” Then, on the other hand, having a relationship with Jesus Christ is a daily personal way of life. The connection is between our creator God and ourselves, based on the truth of God from the Bible, not on a denomination’s interpretation. A relationship with Jesus offers us love, comfort, direction, hope, and the forgiveness we all need. Remember that we can say we have faith, but if we do not show love to one another, we are like clanging gong, so it is not just whether we say that we are Christians; the actual test is if we show God’s love in our hearts which is a result in knowing Him. ~ Bill Greguska

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

There Are Many Ways You Can Define Your Faith!

God knows our hearts! After reflecting on what I have learned from the Bible, God has used some of what was evil in my past to turn it around and make good out of it in my life! It is a combination of God’s Word and what God has done in our lives through His love, grace, and power, which I found in the Bible. If how you define your faith comes from both of your parents being Christian or that you go to church weekly or give money to the church or the poor, I urge you to look into your faith a little more closely. You might be deceiving yourself.  Because God’s grace saves us, all we need to do is accept that gift of grace that He makes available to us. ~ Bill Greguska

(Answers To The Above Ten Questions):

The answer is #10. If you checked any more of the items, you failed the test. Please don’t feel bad at all.  Religion is nothing more than our feeble attempts to please God by doing good works. (Good actions are not wrong but are not the way to heaven). It says in Romans 10:9-10 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
