Christianity Is Not a Work
Christianity is not a work or obligation. Its a faith. A simple belief. A childlike trust.
Jesus told them, “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.” - John 6:29
Religion and terribly confused religious people muddy the water for others by saying/preaching that Christianity is a "work" a "duty" an "obligation" a "sacrifice" etc..
Its time for the church to come out of Babylon (aka CONFUSION).
Creation for humanity started in the Garden of Eden. The Garden of Pleasure. When Jesus rose from the dead he was mistaken for a gardener. In the book "The Revelation of Jesus Christ" it culminates in a Garden City called the New Jerusalem (City of Peace). Jesus speaks of humanity's hearts as soil. The expressions of the Spirit are described as "fruit" in the book of Galatians. Paul the Apostle writes about the gospel bearing "fruit" all over the world.
Jesus describes loving God as coming and naturally stemming from receiving God's forgiveness. He said the ones who love the most are the ones who realize they have been forgiven much. Confused religious people try and make loving God a work. This is painful for me to hear and witness, because true love, the Love of God, comes with no strings attached. Love is pure. Its not obligation or duty. Its fire. It dies and rises for beloved. Its beaten and bruised to be with you and simply hear your voice. Love is the Word that is sown, gives its life, & dies to be multiplied. Love is organic, and its pure genuine origin is God.
Great love and worship comes from living fire. It comes from knowing God (relationship). Every day is thanksgiving and song walking with God in the Garden. The song bird sings because of grace. The birds sing because they are carefree in the care of God.
Back to garden talk. God's Spirit is real and present. There are real angels who encamp around you. God's kingdom is truly within grasp. Let's believe it. Lets believe that God is bearing fruit in us and through us. Lets believe simple bible verses like,
I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing - John 15:5
