Easter and Relationship

32 years ago I made a decision for Jesus Christ because I finally realized that there is a difference between religion and relationship with God. There are no religions in the Bible because they are made by man. God wants a relationship with you and not a religion with you. If God was behind religion he would be multi divided within himself. 

I have been ridiculed by some police officers that I have worked with and by family members because of my stance with Jesus Christ. They look at you cross eyed when you tell them that God talks to you. When you have a relationship with someone, don't you talk to them? What kind of God would not talk to you? God talks to you in many different ways and he will get his message across to you in whatever means he has to if you are listening. If you take time, you will be able to hear his still small voice. 

Easter is not about an egg laying rabbit. Easter is about relationship. It is about God's relationship with his son Jesus and Jesus' relationship with mankind. What Jesus did on the cross can only be comprehended by a relationship with him. All relationships take time. Which relationships in your life are priority? 

As an atheist I only believed in what touched my five senses. Then one day someone asked me if that was true, how do I know I have a brain since I can't see it? We know we have a brain by the product of our thinking. We can't see air yet we know it exists because of wind. We know that God exists because of what he produces and created.

If you died today where would you spend eternity? What would be the basis for your conclusion to that question? If there is a God who created this whole universe, don't you think he can create a relationship with you? A casket is not a place to find out the answer to that question.

This weekend take time to think about your relationship with God. If you're not sure, as I was, just call out to him. It's not about religion, it's about relationship.
