Because they don’t like church, or “churchy” people, many have decided that they don’t want religion. Guess what? Religion isn’t what anyone has ever needed. Religion has never gotten anyone into heaven, and pious living hasn’t gotten anybody closer to God.
God is not sitting up in heaven hoping that you find religion. He is waiting for you to find Him.
In the beginning, the human race was created to be friends with God.
With love he crafted each person, desiring to walk with them in a close alliance. That is true of you also.
He knows you better than you know yourself, and He still wants to be close to you. He wants to walk with you through this life, talk you through the difficult moments that our society lobs your way, and direct you to the paths that are going to provide protection, fulfillment, and purpose.
