How Is Your Relationship With Jesus?Relationship with Jesus!

Please contact us if you have any questions or comments or want some encouragement.

Have you stopped to ask yourself if you are merely practicing religion, or do you have a relationship with Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? There is a world of difference between practicing religion and having a relationship with Jesus. Practicing religion is doing works to get you into heaven, compared to having a relationship with Jesus is relying on what Jesus has done on the cross for us. (The word RELIGION refers to the word “DO,” and the word RELATIONSHIP refers to the word “DONE”). ~ Bill Greguska

Jeremiah 24:7  I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God,  for they will return to me with all their heart.

A Personal Relationship With Jesus?

How is your relationship with Jesus?

Many people grow up attending church knowing some things about Jesus but do not understand why they need a relationship with Jesus. When you have a relationship with Jesus, you trust that his sacrificial death on the cross for our sins determines our eternal destiny in either heaven or hell, depending on the free choice He allows us. Many of us have had a relationship with Jesus since we were young, but that does not mean we understand everything about Jesus. When I was about six years old, I understood God was good and needed to listen to him.

When I got older, about 12, my understanding grew, yet my faith was somewhat immature. But when the winds of high school blew hard and the temptations of alcohol and drugs clouded my thinking, and alcohol and drugs clouded my thinking and my relationship with Jesus, my life fell apart right before my eyes. Like many young people, I used to think that the world revolved around me and the relationships I had with others in my life. Thank God that there was a point in my life when I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior when I realized that my relationship with Jesus was the most important relationship I needed to have. The other relationships in my life were unnecessary, but my relationship with Jesus outranked the others by far. ~ Bill Greguska

God Does Not Make Us Love Him; We Have A Free Will

It is not that Jesus changed, but it was me and my free will that enticed me to do what was evil. I still was bothered by my conscience, but I eventually got over it and numbed my conscience, which allowed me to keep using drugs and alcohol. Thank God that I had my Godly mother stand up for me. She supported and loved me more than anyone in my life. That love was what I needed (people need love). God allowed me to go through long-term treatment, which was just what I needed. God never changes! He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. You and I change; hopefully, we are changing for the better! ~ Bill Greguska

What Do I Need To Do To Have A Relationship With Jesus?

Your salvation does not depend on anything you can do but only on what God has done for you if you have welcomed and invited Jesus Christ to be your Savior and Lord, his word promises he has forgiven your sins and made you a child of God. 

  • “Whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life,” John 3:16. From the moment you “believed in him,” you received eternal life.
  • Whoever lives and believes in me will never die,” John 11:26. You have His promised eternal life right now. You will never perish. When you breathe your last breath here on earth, you breathe your first breath in heaven.
  • “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand,” John 10:27-28. You are not holding onto him, and He’s holding onto you and will not let you go.
  • “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5:17. You are a new creation, the child of God. You can’t go back to where you were before you accepted Christ. Yes, you will be tempted by Satan, but you will always be once you’re His child.
