My Religion

Being part of a particular religion can give us a sense of value.
Being faithful in the practice of religious rituals and traditions gives us a good feeling about ourselves, and especially if we practice them within a group. It links our dignity and honour to our level of commitment.

Let’s think about this together:
You have two gifts. The first is very expensive, and you won it in a competition. The second is a simple gift, but was given to you by someone special.
Which gift will be more valuable to you?

 
I think we can all agree that the true value of the gift lies in the person who gave you the gift and your relationship to him, and not in the gift itself.

Based on this, we see that our true value is not in what we give God through our external worship and traditions. Our value is in our relationship with Him and love for Him. So, the form of our worship does not matter if our hearts are not in the right place towards whom we worship.

In fact, the Bible says that our value as human beings is that we are created in the image of God! We brought shame to ourselves every time we disobeyed God. However, God has proved that His love for us does not depend on any righteousness from our side.

“For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation…” (Romans 5: 10-1)

 
It can be shocking and even painful to even consider that our religion – our practices and beliefs – is not the source of our value, but is the result of our relationship with Him who gives us real value.

God is calling you now to know your worth through Jesus Christ.
