Following Christ or Following Christian Rules?


Linking-up with 
Faith Barista Jam Thursdays



Hello Friends!
Have you ever read The Word and thought about some of the rules and dogma that many Christians insist upon?  Do you, sometimes, feel like there's a kind of "incongruence" between The Word and accepted Christian dogma? Well, I have and I do. None of us can really get it right because we are not right. We are only made right through His Holy Spirit. When we ask for and allow the Holy Spirit to flow through us, we are made right. And, I believe any believer who has called upon the Holy Spirit with an open heart, has experienced this "rightness." No matter how many rules or beliefs we put into place, we will all stumble and sin, here and there. Now, who can say that they haven't stumbled in thought, word or deed? NO ONE! And, guess what? That's okay! Why? Well, if we are giving our all and trying to follow His path, our stumbles will become less of a bruising and more of a stepping stone. That's why we must stay in His Word and walk in His path. According to Scripture(Romans 2: 14-15), even if you haven't read every single word of the Bible, it is written upon your heart. 

Scripture
Romans 2:14-15

Good News Translation
14 The Gentiles do not have the Law; but whenever they do by instinct what the Law commands, they are their own law, even though they do not have the Law. 15 Their conduct shows that what the Law commands is written in their hearts. Their consciences also show that this is true, since their thoughts sometimes accuse them and sometimes defend them.

Music
Love this song! It is plain and simple: I Just Want to Say Thank You, Lord.
