Two Paths, Which One are You On?

There are two primary ways in which people approach a relationship with God...The wrong way, the way of religion ...the right way, the way of Grace. The prime purpose of our spiritual relationship is to know God. The way of religion provides a way for people to know about God according to their interpretation of of what the Bible says about God. The way of Grace is the only true way to know God because we see who God is through the lens of Jesus who came as the express image of God to reveal God.

His reason for coming was to show the community of humanity Who God is and what He is like. Jesus did this through the way He worked and ministered during His earthly life. Beyond His earthly life, He is the all sufficient sacrifice and through His shed blood He would build the community of the redeemed to present the community of humanity with the honesty of who God is and what God is like.

Looking at God through the glass darkly of religious influence distorts the image of God that fashions a God after man's image who wants what they want when they want it.

On the other hand, grace discernment gives us a clear picture of who God is and what His plan is for the community of humanity through the grace filled life creates man in His image to form the community of the redeemed.

The way of religion will prevent you from knowing who God is and the knowledge of what it means to be a believer in the community of the redeemed.

You cannot discern God’s ways through the noise of man-made religion even though it accepts the general revelation that God is creator of His creation and we gain a relationship with Him through grace. However that tells us nothing of the way of grace living as the way of maintaining our redemption. We need a revelation of His grace to understand that God, rather than speaking through religious icons in religion, speaks directly to each of His children on a personal basis. The way of grace does not seek self-pleasure, is not self-centered, is not contentious, is not judgmental and is not condemning. Grace accepts wrongs and injuries done against it, and its only Gospel is love, unconditional love.As 1 Corinthians 13 expounds
The way of religion propagates bad news, the way of Grace provides good news.

To follow man is to follow the way of religion...that leads to death.

To follow God is to follow the way of grace...that leads to life everlasting.
